Hello- so today was my LOs 6 month check up. He is 14lbs 3oz and 4th percentile.
He was born 5 weeks early and was 6lbs 8oz at birth. I think at two months he was about 11lbs. At 5 months he was 13 lbs 8 oz. ( I have all this written down but not right by me)
Clearly his percentile has been trending downward. We started some solids about a month ago.. Just a little banana, avocado, and cereal. He nurses on demand during the day and once or twice at night usually, but he's staring to sleep a bit more. Anyway pediatrician wants me to really increase my solids with him. She thinks my milk may not have enough fat, like skim milk. Is this possible? I feel so guilty if I'm depriving my son of nutrients ... but it just seems like BM should be he best. Should I try giving one formula bottle a day and see if it helps his weight? Anyone else been told they have skim milk?? Any suggestions for high caloric solids?
