I was at the doctors office yesterday for his 4 month check-up and he's weighs 20 lbs 11 oz.. and I was told he was too big and to put him on a feeding schedule... he is 100% breastfed and I just feed him on demand.. I honestly don't know how i'm going to do this.. he seems to get very upset when he's hungry and I don't feed him.. I feel like i'm starving him :\... any suggestions?

i would guess try giving him a small bottle of water before you feed him. i wouldnt say put him on a schedule. but just change it up a bit. the water should help fill him up a bit before he latches on. i know breast fed babies get fairly up set when they are hungry and dont get to eat.
