Okay, I'm trying this again. Please read this BEFORE you post anything. My son is now almost 2, and stands in right at 3ft tall and about 31pounds. This being said, he was 9lbs 7oz, and 21in at birth. By 6 weeks, he was 16lbs and pushing 26in. My doctor told me to give him cereal at 2weeks because 6-10 servings of 9oz of formula a day wasn't enough. In fact, he was so hungry that he projectile vomited because of how much he ate since his tummy wasn't up to speed with his appetite yet. By 2 months, he was still getting the above amount of formula plus three 4 oz servings of thickened rice a day and was still hungry and wanted more. Thus my doctor told me to feed him, and to watch for upsets, in which case I was to stop. He's been eating since and took himself off of baby food at 8 months, when he refused anything but table foods. What I would like to know,are there any other moms out there that have had this experience. I've posted before, but got some nasty fights, so I'm rephrasing my question.
