ok, she's a chunk: 28" and 27lbs at 9 months. she has always been big (9lbs14oz and 22" at birth). but my pediatrician is telling me to go back to strictly nursing because she is concerned that she won't start walking to burn it off. Azalea is really happy and energetic--loves her jenny jump up and activity saucer. her verbal skills are great (already saying mama and dada to each of us) and i think she is developing really well. we usually let her eat with us, so going back to just breast will be really hard, especially because i work 20 hours a week also. Anyone else have experience with this? does anyone have suggestions? maybe just some lower-calorie alternatives? i would cut out the bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes if i had other ideas. she eats oatmeal, tofu and hummus also. it's not like i'm giving her pancakes and fries. i make all her food for her and everything she eats is organic!
