At the last check-up, the Doc. mentioned that she is a little light, and a little short. At eight and a half months, she was 27" and 16 pounds 14oz. She has only put on a pound in the last 3 months. I thought she was eating enough, because I feed her what she wants, and stop when she refuses food. She drinks about 4 feedings of 6-8 oz of formula/breastmilk, eats about 2/3 cup of cereal, and maybe 2 jars of fruits, veggies and a serving of meat every day. It doesn't seem like much compared to what I've been reading she should eat. She's perfectly mobile and seems happy...sleeps the night through...Should I be concerned? When I see other babies her age, she seems half their size. Some of the stuff she wears, she was wearing 5 months ago...I just worry that something is wrong. My doctor is really hard to communicate with, and really isn't much help.
