Hi all - I'm new and looking for some support. My 6 1/2 month old baby girl, born at 8 lbs, 13 oz, is still exclusively breastfed, no bottles whatsoever, no solids yet, and she just had her 6 month appointment. I knew that she is chubby, but she weighed in at 25 lbs, 5 oz. today. Ok. To me that just says she's getting plenty of good mama milk. To my doctor, that meant she was "overweight." He said, "Well, it's time to start modifying her diet." WHAT?? Does that makes sense to anyone? We have a family history of big babies and she's also off the charts for height. He suggested I give her a water bottle. I have not introduced a bottle to her at all, not even of breastmilk, and I'm not about to start just for the sake of giving her something non-nutritive. He suggested I night wean (we co-sleep) and try not to comfort nurse her. AAAAAAHHHH! Is it just me or does this sound like horrible advice? She's not crawling yet, so I think when she does, she'll plateau in terms of weight. Honestly, can a breastfed baby be overfed or overweight?? She's brilliantly healthy otherwise. Her older sister was quite chubby at this age (20.5 lbs at 6 months) and then slimmed down once she was mobile. Now she's a super skinny 4 year old. I don't understand and was quite discouraged at the thought of trying to "rock the boat" in our wonderful nursing relationship. What do you all think? Thank you so much.
