hi everyone. i hate to admit that i am starting to second guess myself.. my lo is 2 mos, and weighs 15.5 pounds..she was 7lbs 12oz when born, and has been gaining about 1.9oz A DAY!!! we are ebf, and i know they say that an ebf baby can't be "obese", but i'm starting to wonder now.. has anyone else here had a baby gain like this??
i wouldn't be so worried if everyone who heard her weight didn't freak out, and also i am starting to wonder if she's eating too often, b/c she is still nursing every 2 or 2.5 hours, during the day... she only catnaps for about 30 minutes at most, and when she wakes up she won't go back to sleep (we've tried and tried).. so eventually she gets fussy, and then i don't know what to do b/c it seems like i should go ahead and let her nurse if it's been 2.5 hours.. but sometimes i find myself thinking i should to stretch out the time between feedings, b/c i'm thinking i'm nursing her too often and making her huge. at night she eats every 4 or 5 hrs, and has pretty short nursing sessions then, draining the boobs quickly b/c she's much hungrier than during the day nursings.. during the day nursings (the ones i'm worried are too frequent), she nurses for about 40-50 minutes each session.
sorry so long. i'm just starting to worry that maybe i'm letting her eat too often, or too long. any insight is appreciated.
