11 month old shedding pounds
My son is 11 months old. He had doubled his birth weight before he was three 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 every day (this can be foursix ounces). At our last weight check (after he had lost one pound), he previously decreased another 5 to 6 ounces into 19 lbs and 3oz.
Our doc started in (and raised my hackles) and basically accused my spouce and i of giving our son a lot of solid food and never enough breastmilk. I had been still feeding him every twothree hours (not counting the solid feeding and also the sixeight hours rest through the night).
My dilemma is that due to his little speech my spouce and i increased our milk feeds and our son started spitting up somewhat again (and that's why there were decreased the feeding time as he was 90 days old he was spitting most of it down). Additionally we added a milkfeed before giving him solids and decreased the amount of solids (from foursix ounces down to two). However we're concerned that he's still reducing your weight. Also, he pulls off and does not stay on for the whole feeding time. Usually about almost every other approximately feedings he can, however, not each time.
I'm wondering if anyone else had stood a similar knowledge about their little one. I have to indicate that based on a number of places, breastfed babies will typically be between 2.5 and 3 times their birthweight at one year for our son that you will find 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 prevent worrying my partner about our son's eating routine?
You'll need a new pediatrician
I too nursed (still do at 21 mo). At about 11 mo of aging my baby was nursing usually Five times per day and was eating a great deal of pureed and finger food. I made use of his hunger cues along with a loose schedule to secure him. He's stayed steady in the 90th percentile since he was 6 mo old. Forcing more about a young child than he needs usually backfires in a major way.
If your little one is shedding pounds between appointments, and you really are feeding him everytime he indicates he needs it (breastmilk or solids) then there can be another thing medically taking place that needs to be investigate.
Also, if your son a full tummy 2 mo ago, as well as an emptier one now, or perhaps a different scale was used, etc. His weight might be off somewhat. My very own baby gained under a pound from 912 mo, 3 pounds from 1218. But we used different scales whenever (long story) therefore i know that it's not quite accurate but also not concern yourself with.
Locate a different pediatrician who will allow you to truly solve the challenge within a constructive way, if there even is a problem. But in addition, don't overlook the fat loss, just in case it is a problem.
Another thought, (still find another doctor) but a One year old should have only 1624 ounces of milk and stay weaned from formula (but remember to breastfeed for longer). Point is simply by 11 mo your child should be getting a substantial volume of his calories from solids, not nursing. He should consume 36 oz of solids for some of his meals, and should have at the very least 3 meals of solids. Try giving him fattier solids like avocado, fish, ground beef, etc.
Plus you say he will not nurse your entire feeding time babies have more efficient at nursing, and several could possibly get serveral ounces in a couple of minutes. If he pulls off and will not latch back on, he could be full.
Consult your doctor, on the other hand would try to increase his solid foods, and introduce fingerfoods, but go on nursing once or twice every day that is healthy too. Below are a few links with other posts I wrote regarding introducing finger foods. You may will discover them helpful.
