At my 4month check up my baby girl was only 11lb 2oz. Which seemed fine to me. But my doc is worried because she is in the 5%tile. She was 7lb 7oz at birth. I am breast feeding and she east on demand. They told me to start her on oatmeal to help her gain weight!!! But I just think she is a peanut. She eats whenever she wants as long as she wants, she is happy, not cranky at all, her development is advanced, her diapers are what they should be. She never eats for a long time, she just kind of picks all day. But she is a happy baby I just think she is a little girl. I don't want to start her on food till she is at least 6 months. There are just no signs that she isn't getting what she needs to be healthy, she is just a little small, but she is LONG she is 25inches!!! Suggestions, should I be worried, should I give her the oatmeal?
