    Default The Butter and Avacados worked

    My LO had fallen off the bottom of the weight chart at 9 months and was only in the 15th for height. When she hit 11 months with no improvement although she was still nursing 5-7 times day, I decided to try the added fat diet. SO today she went for her 12 month check-up, today. She was in the 25th% for height and 5th% for weight. She had gained 1.5 pounds and half an inch in a month. The Dr said she was doing great and pointed out what it would do for us adults if we gave up butter and other fats. LOL

    Laura, proud vbacing, ecological breastfeeding mommy to four ages 8, 6, 5, and 2. That's Kate nursing her doll, Adam.

    The Seven Standards of ecological breastfeeding: (1) exclusive breasfeeding for the first 6 months (2) pacify baby at your breast (3) don't use bottles and pacifiers (4) co-sleep for night feedings (5) take a nursing nap (6) nurse frequently day and night; avoiding schedules (7) avoid practices that restrict nursing or separates you from your baby. The average return of menstruation for ecological breastfeeding mothers is between 14 and 15 months.

    I hate to show my ignorance, but what exactly is the added fat diet? My DD is three months old and weighs 11.14. She gains an average of about a half an ounce a day, and there have been some concerns that she's not gaining well. If I could change something about my diet to help her gain better, I'd love to give it a shot.

    Thanks!

    I think original poster is saying she added the fats to the lo's diet - yes?
