Re: Alternatives to Cow's Milk??
As long as there aren't drastic drops in growth, it could just be that lo's often slow down in their growth as they get older. You might try offering solids a couple more times a day and see what happens. It shouldn't matter how they get the fat/calories/protein they need. FWIW, DS doesn't like milk and is a healthly 5 year old who has gone through periods of being chunky and being skinny since weaning at 3 1/2. We do calcium supplements and other dairy.
DS 1/2006 9 lb. 2 oz. 22 in.
DD 10/2008 8 lb, 2 oz. 20 in.
