My daughter is 6 months old and weighs 12lbs (born 8lb 5oz). she was off to a very slow start to her weight gain and also had GERD, a gastrointestinal issue. She had really bad reflux for a few months and now seems to be doing fine. We see her Doctor regularly and have also been seeing a GI Dr. They both seem to be a little worried about her weight gain, but my baby seems great. Eats well, developmentally ahead of other babies, she is happy, smiley and seems fie. What is most frustrating to me is that their worry makes me feel like im not doing the right things. We keep a sleep and feeding log, she eats on average 570calories per day... yes i keep track... lol.
I breast fed exclusive for the first few months, then did breast and formuls, just up till she was 5 1/2 months se is on solids and formula only.
I just want to know about other 6mo olds, their weights, any experiences with GERD.. all that kind of stuff. I just think talking to other mommys will help us.
she is in the 25th percentile for height and just under the 0 percentile for weight.
