Am I breastfeeding too much? Everything I read says to breastfeed on demand, and I do. Kaylee is 6 months old and weighs 21 1/2 pounds! She was born at a normal, healthy weight of 7 pounds 13 ounces. She looks soo huge now. I don't really know what to do about it, or even if I should do something about it. I have a very hard time with her falling asleep, nursing is the only way she will. Is that maybe what is making her gain so much weight. She usually gains a pound and a half a month. Any suggestions or is there anyone out there with the same problem?
