I've been to see the health visitor today to have Amelia weighed and at 14weeks she weighs 13lb 10oz. The health visitor (a new lady i've never see before) then started quizzing me about hown often i feed her and about my diet etc as she's only put 9oz on in 2weeks.
Amelia was 7lb 1oz at birth and has pretty much followed the 75th centile up until today where she has dipped slightly under it. The health visitor has told me to have her weighed again next week to see if she's put anymore on.
I'm not sure how I feel really because in a way i feel slightly put out and abit down if Amelia's not doing as well as she should be and it's down to me feeding her but on the other hand 9oz isn't that bad surely????? I mean she's putting on weight at least and like i say has always been on the 75th centile so above average!
Oh just to add i feed her on demand and i've just thought (why don't these thoughts occur when i'm with the blummin HV?????) Amelia's recently started sleeping through 9.30-10ish to around 5-5.30ish. Could this be a reason as she's dropped a feed? Should i go back to waking her up in the night to feed her?
