11 month old slimming down
My son is 11 months old. He had doubled his birth weight before he was several years old and was a student in 20 lbs and 11 ounces two/three months ago. We are still breastfeeding and we are also giving him the least one pureed serving of food each day (this really is foursix ounces). At our last weight check (after he previously already lost one pound), he had decreased another five to six ounces into 19 lbs and 3oz.
Our doc started in (and raised my hackles) and basically accused my husband and I of giving our son a lot of solid food and never enough breastmilk. I used to be still feeding him every twothree hours (not counting the solid feeding and the sixeight hours respite at night).
My dilemma is that due to his little speech we increased our milk feeds and our son started spitting up a little bit again (which is why there was decreased the feeding time whilst was 90 days old he was spitting so much of it up). Additionally we added a milkfeed before giving him solids and decreased how much solids (from foursix ounces as a result of two). However were concerned that he's still losing weight. Also, he pulls off and won't stay on for your feeding time. Usually about every other or so feedings he'll, and not whenever.
I'm wondering if anyone else had were built with a similar knowledge of their baby. I would like to point out that as outlined by a number of places, breastfed babies will typically be between 2.5 and three times their birthweight at 12 months for our son that could be between 18 and 1/8 lbs and 21 and 3/4 lbs. I'm just trying to figure out if I'm justified in telling my pediatrician to stop worrying my better half about our son's diet regime?
You will need a new pediatrician
I too nursed (still do at 21 mo). At about 11 mo of aging my baby was nursing usually Half a dozen times per day and was eating a great deal of pureed and finger food. I made use of his hunger cues plus a loose schedule to secure him. He's got stayed steady inside the 90th percentile since he was 6 mo old. Forcing on a kid than he needs usually backfires big time.
If your child is reducing your weight between appointments, and you're feeding him everytime he indicates he needs it (breastmilk or solids) then there may be something else medically occurring that needs to be investigate.
Also, should your son were built with a full tummy 2 mo ago, as well as an emptier one now, or a different scale was adopted, etc. His weight might be off a little. My own, personal baby gained less than a pound from 912 mo, and 3 pounds from 1218. But we used different scales each time (long story) and so i know that it's not quite accurate but also nothing to worry about.
Look for a different pediatrician that will assist you to truly solve the challenge in the constructive way, if there even is a concern. But in addition, don't neglect the weight reduction, in case it is a problem.
Another thought, (still find another doctor) but a Twelve month old must have only 1624 ounces of milk and turn into weaned from formula (but please do breastfeed for longer). Point is simply by 11 mo your kids should be receiving a substantial amount of his calories from solids, not nursing. He should eat 36 oz of solids for many of his meals, and should have a minimum of 3 meals of solids. Try giving him fattier solids like avocado, fish, hamburger, etc.
Plus you say he'll almost certainly not nurse the entire feeding time babies read more efficient at nursing, and lots of can get serveral ounces in a couple of minutes. If he pulls off and won't latch back on, he could be full.
Consult a physician, but I would attempt to increase his food, and introduce fingerfoods, but go on nursing a few times per day that is good too. Here are several links with posts I wrote regarding introducing finger foods. Maybe you will see them helpful.
