So i went to the doctor for Liam's 4 month check up..had to see a different one cus ours is on vacation. Right then i knew i may have some trouble with different views, but didnt see this one coming! I was informed that my baby is fat and that im feeding his fat cells and not his tummy. I said well If he's hungry i gotta feed him, he actually said NO YOU DONT. I looked at him and said tough, yes i do.Now my view is i feed my baby when he's hungry. He's the boss of me so i go by cues. I was just wondering what your guys baby's weight is. Liam is 4.5 months old, born 6 lbs 10 oz is now 16lbs and 25.5 inch tall. Formula fed and is JUST starting on little tastings of cereal becasue i noticed that he keeps reaching for our food so i thought i'd give it a go. ( he's only had it for 4 days in the morning so its not like i over fed him on cereal..) The nurses at the health center told me he was dead average in the 50% isle and all that jazz.
