I have a very active happy 9 month old who I believe (from our home scale) isn't gaining weight. She was 6.13 at birth, now somewhere between 14 and 15 pounds?, 27 1/2 in (At 1 month was 8.5, 2 month 11.4, 4 months 12.14, 6 months 13.12) She loves to eat solids (veg, fruit, rice cereal) but now I think I should cut back. I've recently let her sleep through the night without feeding so I don't want to have to wake up. (Though if I get engourged I do feed her).
The strange thing is this happened with her 3 year old sister at 9 months, she wouldn't gain weight! 7.10 at birth then at 4 month 13.10, 6 months 14.4 and down to 14.3 at 9 months, she's now over 30 pounds and ever since 1 when she was 17.12 has been gaining well. (But still a highly active, intelligent, alert baby) She had a blood and urine test but nothing was found.The 3 year old has food allergies and had eczema and such early on, I thought this was the reason for weight problems. But the baby has no eczema, and hasn't had gas or problems from my milk since she was 3 months old.
Sorry this is so long, but now that this is happening again, I'm kind of worried, I think perhaps last time I gave a little formula for a while to increase weight, I also gave anything fattening I could find and that was during the month she ended up losing weight. Is this normal, could it be my breast milk? (She wets about 8 diapers a day and poops every couple days, very firm from the vegetables. Going through the whole too busy to bf a lot thing but never acts hungry unless it's been hours).
