not gaining weight
Hi! I am new to this site but have gotten good information from other forums so this is worth a try! My 7 month old granddaughter lives in another city so we can't help as much as we would like. She is only 13 lbs. 11 oz., and only gained 6 oz. this past month. She eats cereal, and a jar of baby food daily, plus nursing. Her doctor is against breastfeeding and has been trying to get my daughter to stop since the baby was born, believe it or not. She has perservered under great duress; now he is telling her to force-feed the baby formula and to stop nursing since the baby must not be getting enough calories. She is right on schedule with everything else, such as sitting, and pulling herself up and "talks" constantly. She was normal weight at birth, 7 lbs. 7 oz. Anyone else out there with a slow gaining baby? Oh, her height is fine, and she is growing that way. She doesn't like a bottle or a cup--just plays with them.
