I took my son to the pediatrician at 8 weeks and he weighed 14.9lbs and measured 24 1/2, she stated that he was too big (fat) for his age. At that time, he was drinking 5oz every 3-4hrs. She said I was overfeeding him, to give him 4oz and give him water in-between feedings. That he should at least be feeding every 4hrs and only weigh at least 12lbs. Well, my son is now 10 weeks and 4oz just doesn't seem to fill him up. I'm scared that she will tell me at his next visit that I am overfeeding him or that he is fat. The people at the WIC center said the same thing... I feel sooo helpless. Has anyone else been through something similar?
