Re: Lost it at ped's office, totally upset & need support
I hate doctors that think they know better than the momma!
Don't feel bad. It sounds like your DD is on her own growth curve, and that's just fine. And don't think that night weaning will increase her daytime calories, because I'm here to tell you that it's entirely possible that it won't. My DS1 certainly hasn't made up for lost night time calories. And also night weaning did not in any way help his sleep. He still wakes up during the night. And he's 2.5 years old.
I don't know nsm's smoothie recipe, but we frequently toss frozen and/or fresh fruit in the blender with greek yogurt and spinach. Sometimes we add extra whey or soy protein. I rarely get DS1 to drink them, but DH and I enjoy them!
Breastfeeding, babywearing, sci-fi loving, total geek of a mom!
