I had a hard time weaning my daughter from the breast to the bottle,when I went back to work when she was 3 monthes. Still at this point -she is 6 monthes now...she will only drink 3-4 oz at the most at a seating. Most times it is only 1-2 oz according to her daycare sheet.
At her 4 month check up the dr said to start her on solids and continue to bf. I did that ...exactly what was said breakfast---ceral and fruit, lunch -veggie, dinner, veggie.
Her 6 month check up was yesterday and she only gained 1lb, between check ups. The Dr is now saying to drop the veggie =lunch and only offer the breastmilk bottle and feed her the meat/veggie combo for dinner. I now have to document all meals and how much she is eating for this week and call the dr to report back. We also have to go back to the office in 6 weeks for a weight check.
So, question====should I be worried??? Also, what advice do you have to get her to drink better from a bottle?
