Hello ladies. I have a six-and-a-half month-old baby boy. He is very active, right on target for development (if not a bit ahead), and is in the 50th percentile for height. However, we cannot seem to keep his weight up in a good percentile (right now we're in the 3rd). Last weekend, our birthing class had a reunion and as I looked around, I realized that all the breastfed babes were leaner than the formula fed ones. I wonder if this is just coincidence? I'm also kind of curious how his weight gain stacks up against breastfed babies only, instead of the stats that include formula-fed babes. So, what is your opinion on this topic, and also, how big was your baby at 6 months?
