Haha. Showed her!! :)
DS had his 9 month WBV today. We didn't get to see his usual (more AP) doctor b/c she's always booked for months in advance. So we saw the other doctor in the practice. She was asking what DS eats and stuff, and was surprised when we told her that he only gets solids twice a day. She asked when we planned on adding a third and I told her probably not anytime soon since breastmilk needs to be his main source of nutrition. She tried to tell me that was only for the first 6 months. *laughs* Then she said he'd need an iron supplement because at this age they stop getting enough from BM. (His iron was also low the last time we went, but that was my fault, as I hadn't been keeping up with my prenatals or eating correctly). I told her to check his iron before she gave us a prescription for the iron. It was perfect. Ha.

His weight is really low (he's 17lbs & 30"), but I'm not worried about it, as DH is very tall & lean. Anyway. Just wanted to share that. :goodvibes:

My kids are always in the 95th percentile until 6 months. Then they drop drastically, even below the 50th percentile. But my DH and I aren't big ppl. I hate it when ppl say it is because I am only BF and need to feed them food.

Yeah, both my kids were small...Well, both were in 50-75th percentiles for height & weight until about 4 months and then both proceeded to drop off the bottom of the chart by 1 year! Gavin was 19lbs at 1 year and Claire was 16 lbs at 1 year. I just keep feeding then what I knew was healthy (Gavin never went anywhere NEAR a french fry or hot dog until well over 2, and Claire still has not had either), and by the time they hit 18 months, both were well back on the charts (okay, 5-10th percentiles...!). Oh, and all along, they were hitting all their development milestones as they should, looked fine, etc., just were "small" according to the charts. Neither dh nor I are big, so it stands to reason that our kids won't be, either. And you hear more and more about childhood obesity and how it starts in infancy, which makes me glad I didn't have hugely fat children!! Good job mama, knowing your stuff! :thumbsup:

Re: Haha. Showed her!! :)
that's great....

oh check this, this will def help if you get any weight ds is healthy and happy, very energetoc he's just skinny, he's in the 5th percentile or less. but I never let it bother me, until doc said he hadn't gained any wieght for a month. but this article really helped me feel alot better about my own intuition and knowledge I had gained about bf babies and weight!. I am not concerned at all now. plus my whole family was skinny as babies.

and check the infant growth calculator on that page.
