Hi everyone - this is my first posting here. I'm exclusively breastfeeding my 3rd child who just turned 4 months. At checkup last week he was 75% for height (same as previous) but 10% for weight (previously 25%). Ped said I need to supplement, with pumped milk or formula, and that she sees this a lot in this age range. One thing to note - about 6 weeks ago I stopped consuming dairy due to a milk protein intolerance. I probably haven't been doing a great job replacing the protein and fat I was getting from dairy (I ate a lot of it, which is easy with toddlers who like it too).
Now I am freaked out. He hasn't been getting bottles lately although he had them once in a while early on. He won't take a bottle, especially from me. I have been pumping extra milk when needed and freezing it, but I've tried to give him fresh milk in a bottle the last couple days and it doesn't work.
Before this checkup I thought he was doing fine although had started waking up at night to feed (which I was responding to). He has always been a "banana" baby so he's not chubby.
Birth weight 6 lbs 11 oz. lowest weight was about 6 lbs 1 oz. 4 days ago at the doctor he weighed 12 lbs 13 oz.
What should I do? Thanks in advance. PS- I am a worrier, so this has been troubling me a lot! I don't want to starve him!
