Re: Should my 15lb 2-month old be put on a feeding schedule?
with everyone else- feed your baby when he demands it. Your doctor sees your child every few months for 20 minutes. You see your baby all day, every day. So who knows him best??? Also, breastmilk digests fast, much faster than formula. A breastfed baby who wants to eat every hour or so is hungry.
Tall genes are a good thing. My DH was a breastfed baby, and my MIL says he gained a pound a week on breastmilk alone. He was born at 7 lbs, 10 oz, which means that at 2 months he weighed about 15 lbs, too. He grew up to be 6'9". Gaining a pound a week was just about his genes- he was destined to be a big, tall dude and he got an early start in getting there.
Your baby's weight gain will plateau, I promise. Many breastfed babies gain weight extremely fast in the early weeks/months. Once they become mobile and start burning calories with rolling/scooting/crawling/walking, their weight gain slows waaaay down, and a slim toddler will emerge from that baby chub. So enjoy those rolls while they last!!!
