DS is 4 1/2 mo. old. He currently weighs 10lbs even and is 22 1/2 inches long. DS weighed 6 1/2 ponds at birth and was 18 inches long.
Recently went to 4mo. appt. Doc said babies weight is is worrying him and would like to see him again in 1 months time to see if he has gained. If not he would like for me to start supplementing with formula. He also said I should start cereal right away. He made me feel so inadequate.
I EBF 6-7 times within a 24hr period. He nurses on both sides for about 20 min. each side. I would like to continue this until he reaches 6 months of age and then start introducing solids, however I am worried I am doing something wrong.
My DS seems to be reaching all milestones and is quite a happy little guy...except for the teething part. I have 2 other sons 1 only formula fed ( had so many problems with hospital visits and allergies) I vowed to breastfeed my second and was only able to do so for 1 month, however the little I did made quite a difference. Now with my 3rd I have EBF since birth and would really love to continue. The benefits are countless!
