My DS is 4 months old and weighed in at 17lbs yesterday. Dr said this puts him in the 90th percentile for weight but he is only in the 50th for height. Also, he was born 6 weeks early, so if I use his corrected age (2.5 months) he is off the charts for weight.
Everything I have read says you cant overfeed a BF baby but I am concerned because we only just made it to EBF in the last month....before that he was supplemented. Could supplementing have stretched his tummy, and now it takes too much to fill him? I nurse on demand and he will come off the breast when he has had enough. He sleeps from about 9pm-8am with 1 night feeding in between. He nurses about every 2 hrs during the day.
He weighed 4lbs 10oz at birth, and will be 18 weeks old tomorrow....any thoughts?
