Hi all my little boy Mackenzie is 11 + 6 weeks old and 2 weeks ago I had him weighed and he was 9lb 2oz. Up until 2 weeks ago I was entirely breastfeeding but have now switched to formula. He has between 4-5 oz every 3 -4 hours. He also sleeps through the night. The last time I had him weighed the health visitor didn't seem too concerned and said that he would probably have a growth spurt or two. The thing is I have been reading updates from some of my friends who had babies at the same time as me and their little ones seem to be so much heavier and on between 7-9 oz. Do you think I should mention something to my health visitor when I see her next. Oh he also has reflux but is never sick so it's not like he's feeding and then bringing it back up. I'm just a little concerned now because you can really see his ribs too especially when he has the hiccups.
