Re: Growth Charts and Breastfeeding
I wouldn't worry if I were you. I think your doc is being overly-cautious. They forget, sometimes, that everything within the normal range on the growth chart is...well...normal. Someone has to be in the lowest percentiles, it's just statistics. FWIW, my daughter has been below 5th %ile since she was about 2 months old (born @ 25th%ile) and she's perfectly healthy. She's just small. Our doc has never been concerned.
Here's the WHO growth chart for girls, in case you want to reference it (it's a pdf). It looks like your daughter falls just under 5%ile, which (again) is within the normal range and would not be unexpected for a child with smaller parents.
Even if you did have a problem, adding solids wouldn't be the way to solve it. Nursing more would. Your breastmilk is more nutrient dense than any solid food your baby could eat, cereal especially. Filling her up with cereal would only make her nurse less, which is the exact opposite of what you want.
