My dtr is 9 1/2 months old she curently weighs 15lbs 9oz. She has literally fallen off the growth chart. I have listed her weigh ins and corresponding percentile below. She is meeting her milestones at a reasonable pace a couple things she did like a month or so later then "average". She has 6+ wet diapers a day average 1-2 good sized bowel movements. She is being held (in arms, frontpack, or sling) majority of time(per her demand lol) She is currently breastfed on demand usually every 3 hoursish. She is breastfed then offered solids between 5-6pm she usually eats 1 jar of stage 2 fruit or veg with 2oz expressed breastmilk and 2-3Tbsp of infant cereal. Ocassionally wakes for 1 6oz bottle expressed breastmilk around 4am while i'm at work. She is happy and looks small but healthy, Dr refered her to a nutritionist, am i producing inadequate breastmilk? We've offered her small amounts of foods at other times of the day and she isn't interested or only takes very small amount. Her pedi is very good i really trust her, I'm just not sure how much i wanna push the weight thing?

You guys were so incredibly helpful during these times! I've tried to login to LLI several times over the last year and my computer would never load it and only bring me to an error screen. I randomly tried again today and tada!!!
