Lucas just had his four month doctors appointment, and the doctor was a little bit concerned that his weight gain had slowed considerably. He was born at 10lbs, but dropped to 9lbs 3oz before we left the hospital, and now he weighs 13lbs 4oz. He was between the 75th and 95th percentile and now he's in the 25th percentile. I was exclusively breastfeeding, until today when we started him on Rice Cereal as per the doctors instructions. He's alert, happy, and developing well. But I'm a first time Mom...so there is always lots of questions, and of course worry.
Has anyone else had a similar experience with slowed weight gain?
