The doc just told me he's just a little guy and not to worry about the percentile, but the nurse said I should feed him more. He will be 10 months in a little over a week from now. He was always in the 50th percentile for weight before, but this time, he is just so small compared to everyone else, I guess. He even has a little tyke gut when he sits. I was totally shocked. He's in the 50th percentile for height btw at 28.6 inches. He doesn't go starving or anything, but I feel horrible about it either way. I am just curious what you guys feed your LO. He gets 2-3 8oz bottles a day, 1-2 6oz juices a day, and two jars of baby food and some grown up food like shredded chicken, fish, and veggies, plus a handful of cheerios to boot, so about 700-850 calories a day. Sometimes he doesn't even eat everything I serve him.
