Caitlyn was 8 lbs 7 oz at birth and Monday at her 6 month check up she weighed in at 15 lbs 5 oz. At her 4 month check up (I am pretty sure it was her 4 month check up, but it seems like it wasn't that long ago) she was 14 lbs 14oz. Her height is in the 75th percentile and weight is 35 percentile.
Up to this point she has been ebf, altho she did try cereal one time a few days ago.
The dr said she is doing fine, but that I need to start feeding her solids as breast milk will no longer be enough to sustain her.
Do I have to start feeding her solids? We have a lot of allergies in our family, so wanted to wait as long as possible before starting them.
Should I be concerned about her slow weight gain?
She nurses on demand and has a good number of wet/dirty diapers every day. During the 11 hours I am gone during the day she eats between 3-5
4 oz bottles depending on the day. Once I am home she nurses frequently (almost non stop ) until we go to bed. She nurses several times during the night with the last feeding at 5 am before I go to work. She then gets her first bottle when she wakes up between 10 am - noon and I get home between 6:30-7:30.
