My daughter is a wonderful eater, but she is slender. She has consistantly travelled along the 5th% line until 6mnths. She has since dropped to the 3rd% line. At 1st my DR was not too worried as it is common for 6mnth breast fed babies to plateau, but she was weighed again yesterday & is still on the 3rd% line & now they are calling me back to discuss. I breast feed my daughter & she has 3 solid meals a day in addition. She eats a lot. My mother is a very lean athletic woman & I believe that this is in my daughter genes. I am now very nervous they are going to ask me to suppliment with formula. My daughter is never hungry & if she ever requests more food I give it to her. The quality of food I give her is very good. I make all her vege's & fruit. She has yoghurt or custard for lunch, porridge or farex with fruit for breakfast & vege's for dinner. I have recently introduced some meats & pasta with her vege's but not every night yet.
I'm anxious about this....
