...and the doctor FINALLY stopped pushing formula
Previously he would suggest that we add in formula to his evening bottles (when I'm at work) because "formula has more calories and fat than breastmilk." Then 2 weeks ago he suggested adding in rice cereal at night
We did neither.
I followed your advice, just offering him num-nums more often.
He's on his own growth curve. I'm glad the doc finally sees that! He's gaining weight (over 600 g in the past 2 weeks which the doc was really happy with) (12.6 lb), he's growing in length (24 in), his head's growing (16.9 in), he's bright-eyed and meeting all his milestones and he's quite the little charmer
He still suggested rice cereal to "help him learn how to swallow"...but eh. We have 2 more months before we even start to think about playing with solids
I just wanted to share, because after being so concerned for so long it's nice to feel like...I'm enough. KWIM?
And y'all have been so so so so SO helpful. You have given the best advice and been so supportive. BIG Thank You
