My daughter (born Oct 6) has been a boobie baby. She has self-weaned herself to only eat in the middle of the night...when she eats then it's for about 15mins.
She doesn't eat baby food (feel free to judge me but leave your comments to yourself). She usually eats a banana and some cheerios or an egg for breakfast. Sometimes diff cereal or we'll make her a pancake. For lunch we'll make her something easy to mooch on and same with dinner. She loves mashed potatoes and spaghetti. And she seemed to be bulking up quite well.
She is pretty active. She is crawling and can almost walk. She loves to pull herself up on furniture and cruise around.
At her appointment today (9months) she weighed a whole 16lbs2oz. Her dr. said that puts her in the 12th percentile which worries me. I know she is active and her doctor said it's ok because she's healthy but she said Madelynn may not tip 19lbs by her 1yr. She also said MAdelynn has really leaned out since her 6month appointment (she was14lbs14oz at that appointment).
Anyone else have skinny babes or got any recommendations on how to bulk her up? No I don't want her to be fat I just want her to look healthy.
Thanks in advance!
