She is up a pound overall for the month so thats good, but im still worried. The doctor thinks that the baby is just having a hard time getting over a stomach bug because she's refusing to eat and has been having smelly green poopies. I was told to just keep doing what I'm doing and bring her back in ten days for her four month check up and hopefully her weight will be up. I was also told to start giving her a half packet of children's probiotic a day mixed with some applesauce. Until now she's only ever had breast milk. I had intended to hold off on solids until 6 months but she seemed to like it. I though you were supposed to start on rice cereal though, but the head doctor who owns the practice told me to do it so I did. She's just been so unhappy and cries a lot. Maybe it's more good allergies? I'm not going anywhere for the next two days so I'm just going to stay home to take care of her and pump.
I dont think applesauce is a good idea for a 3.5 month old. Someone correct me if im wrong but I believe if you take probitics it will get transferred to her. Also the brewers yeast in beer can upset babies. Rice cereal use to be the starting food. A lot of moms now avoid it. It really doesnt have any nutritional value.
