I have been ebf my LO and she has only gained six ouncs in three months. She is almost nine months. Dh is pushing to start formula and continue to breast feed as well.. The doctor really wants us to.
i know breast milk is best, but I feel so bad she gained spittle. She has good diaper count, meeting all milestones she is crawling and pulling up. She is super happy, any suggestion in diet change for me!
What was she at birth and what is she now? Are you giving any solids? My sons ped said a few times I should supplement and we never did eventually DS caught up and the ped was very happy and told me to keep on doing what I was doing! EBF babies grow different. As long as he diapers are a good amount daily and she's meeting milestones that's more important!
As previously stated, actual weights are needed to be really helpfull.
But... My dd only gained 3.5 oz from 6 months to 9 months and then only 1.5 oz from 9 months to 12 months. Her psid was never worried because her previous weight history was just fine.
Mine gained like crazy the first 6 months. Weighed exactly the same ounce for ounce at the 6 month and 9 month appointment then gained slowly from there. But overall weight gain by that first year averaged out slightly more than the pound a month expected.
