11 month old reducing your weight
My son is 11 months old. He doubled his birth weight before he was several years old and what food was in 20 lbs and 11 ounces two/three months ago. I am still breastfeeding and we're also giving him minimum of one pureed serving of food per day (that is foursix ounces). At our last weight check (after he'd lost a pound), he'd decreased another 5 to 6 ounces right down to 19 lbs and 3oz.
Our doc came in (and raised my hackles) and basically accused we of giving our son too much solid food and not enough breastmilk. I had been still feeding him every twothree hours (not counting the solid feeding along with the sixeight hours respite through the night).
My dilemma is that as a result of his little speech we increased our milk feeds and our son started spitting up a bit again (which is why there were decreased the feeding time whilst was 90 days old he was spitting a lot of it). We added a milkfeed before giving him solids and decreased the quantity of solids (from foursix ounces right down to two). However we have been concerned that he's still losing weight. Also, he pulls off and won't remain on for your feeding time. Usually about almost every other or so feedings he'll, but not whenever.
I was wondering if someone else had were built with a similar experience with their baby. I would like to indicate that based on a couple of places, breastfed babies will typically be between 2.5 about three times their birthweight at twelve months for our son that could be between 18 and 1/8 lbs and 21 and 3/4 lbs. I'm just racking your brains on if I'm justified in telling my pediatrician to stop worrying my better half about our son's eating habits?
You want a new pediatrician
I too nursed (still do at 21 mo). At about 11 mo of age my baby was nursing usually 5 times each day and was eating a great deal of pureed and finger food. I made use of his hunger cues and a loose schedule to secure him. He's stayed steady within the 90th percentile since he was 6 mo old. Forcing read more about a child than he needs usually backfires hugely.
If your little child is shedding pounds between appointments, and you're simply feeding him everytime he indicates he needs it (breastmilk or solids) then there may be something different medically going on that you should investigate.
Also, in case your son had a full tummy 2 mo ago, and an emptier one now, or a different scale was used, etc. His weight may be off a bit. My own, personal baby gained only a pound from 912 mo, and 3 pounds from 1218. But we used different scales each and every time (long story) so I are aware that it is not quite accurate but also not even attempt to be worried about.
Locate a different pediatrician which will allow you to truly solve the situation in a constructive way, if there even is an issue. But in addition, don't disregard the fat loss, in the event it is just a problem.
Another thought, (still find another doctor) but a 1 year old must have only 1624 ounces of milk and turn into weaned from formula (but please do breastfeed for extended). Point is actually 11 mo your kids needs to be receiving a substantial level of his calories from solids, not nursing. He should eat 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'll almost certainly not nurse your entire feeding time babies get more efficient at nursing, and a lot of will get serveral ounces in a couple of minutes. If he pulls off and will not latch back on, he or she is full.
Consult your doctor, however would make an effort to increase his food, and introduce fingerfoods, but keep on nursing once or twice every day that is healthy too. Below are a few links to other posts I wrote regarding introducing finger foods. Perhaps you will quickly realize them helpful.
