I'm looking for advice on how to fatten up my son. He's 6.5 months old and LOVES nursing (usually 10 times a day) and eating (usually 3 - 1/2 cup "meals" a day).
At six months he hadn't doubled his birth weight. Last weekend, we were out shopping and a couple with a baby the same age asked me if he was born premature. After I told them he wasn't, they asked what was wrong with him. He's at the 50% for height, but his weight is only at the 10%. Our doctor said I could feed him as much food as he wants as long as I don't cut back on the nursing at all, and I haven't.
His first food was avacado. After trying other fruits and veggies, he decided he didn't like avacado anymore. I can mix it with banana and he'll eat it.
A LLL Leader suggested mixing oils into his food. Has anyone else heard of this? What types of oils? The leader's suggestion was butter, but I want to avoid dairy until 1 year. I'm considering soy or olive oil.
