My almost 11 month old was exclusively breastfed until about a month ago, when my pedi brought to my attention that my babygirl is no longer on the growth chart. she is gaining and growing in length, just not quite as much as they'd like to see for her age. developmentally she is average or above - except in one area - sitting up. shes crawling, pulling to standing, saying 3 or more words, happy, bouncy, takes 2 good naps a day... she doesnt sleep well at all at night. we co-sleep and nurse "on cue." i wear her a lot so i thougt this might be why she's not sitting, plus she's busy chasing her older sibling (who was also a small baby, though she was a formula/bottle baby.) i am trying every food i can think of and she is really just not interested in anything except maybe foods she should NOT have at this age, like bread and ice cream, LOL. i love her and i want whats best for her, but i am also a little concerned. generally, i think mothers know best.. but i cant help but feel inadequate when so many people remark about my baby's size. she wont take bottle, sippy cup, formula, or breastmilk in either. she hates mushy baby food and cereal. she wont eat cooked fruits or veggies as finger foods.. she wont even take vitamins from a dropper! what do i do? am i alone here??
