11 month old reducing your weight
My son is 11 months old. He'd doubled his birth weight before he was 36 months old and what food was in 20 lbs and 11 ounces two/three months ago. We are still breastfeeding and we are also giving him at least one pureed serving of food each day (this can be foursix ounces). At our last weight check (after he already lost one pound), he previously decreased another 5 or 6 ounces right down to 19 lbs and 3oz.
Our doc started in (and raised my hackles) and basically accused we of giving our son an excessive amount of solid food and not enough breastmilk. I became still feeding him every twothree hours (not counting the solid feeding and the sixeight hours respite in the evening).
My issue is that as a consequence of his little speech my spouce and i increased our milk feeds and our son started spitting up somewhat again (which is the reason there was decreased the feeding time as he was three months old he was spitting most of it up). We all added a milkfeed before giving him solids and decreased the quantity of solids (from foursix ounces as a result of two). However we're concerned that he is still slimming down. Also, he pulls off and does not stick to for your feeding time. Usually about every other or so feedings he will, and not each time.
I was wondering if anyone else had stood a similar exposure to their infant. I must mention that based on several places, breastfed babies will typically be between 2.5 about three times their birthweight at one full year for our son that you will find between 18 and 1/8 lbs and 21 and 3/4 lbs. I'm just considering if I'm justified in telling my pediatrician to stop worrying my better half about our son's diet regime?
You'll need a new pediatrician
I too nursed (still do at 21 mo). At approximately 11 mo old enough my baby was nursing usually Five times every day and was eating plenty of pureed and finger food. We used his hunger cues as well as a loose schedule to give him. She has stayed steady within the 90th percentile since he was 6 mo old. Forcing on a child than he needs usually backfires big time.
If your kid is slimming down between appointments, and you're feeding him everytime he indicates he needs it (breastmilk or solids) then there could be something else medically occurring that you should investigate.
Also, if your son were built with a full tummy 2 mo ago, and an emptier one now, or possibly a different scale was applied, etc. His weight could be off a little. My own baby gained under a pound from 912 mo, and three pounds from 1218. But we used different scales each and every time (long story) so I are aware that it isn't really quite accurate but also nothing to concern yourself with.
Locate a different pediatrician who will help you truly solve the issue in a constructive way, if there even is a dilemma. But in addition, don't overlook the weight reduction, in the event it is just a problem.
Another thought, (still find another doctor) but a 12 month old should have only 1624 ounces of milk and turn into weaned from formula (but please breastfeed for). Point is by 11 mo your youngster must be getting a substantial volume of his calories from solids, not nursing. He should eat 36 oz of solids for most of his meals, and may have no less than 3 meals of solids. Try giving him fattier solids like avocado, fish, hamburger, etc.
Plus you say he will not nurse the entire feeding time babies get more efficient at nursing, and lots of could possibly 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, on the other hand would try and increase his solid foods, and introduce fingerfoods, but continue nursing once or twice each day that is good too. Here are a few links with posts I wrote regarding introducing finger foods. Perhaps you will discover them helpful.
