I'm a first time mom. I have been exclusively breastfeeding since my son's my in June. At his 5-month check up (nov 5) the doctor pointed out that he did not gain ANY weight since his last check-up (oct 11) He has released from the hospital at:
- Weight: 6.8 pounds released at 6.5 pounds
- Height: 53.5 centimeters
- Head circum: 35 centimeters
At 5 months old:
- Weight: 14.38 pounds
- Height: 65 centimeters
- Head circum: 43.3 centimeters
So the difference is
- Weight: 7,58 pounds
- Height: 11.5 cm
- Head circum: 8.3 cm
He went from the 45th percentile to the 15th; which is quite a drop. He is very active, achieving all his milestones and a happy baby.
The doctor recommended that I supplement with diet with cereals. I don't know if I should. Any views/opinions?
