Re: Being told hes under weight and to wean

Mine is off the charts (WHO Charts) low...

Ped is not worried. My family is small, short and thin.

If there is a problem, it could be with malabsorption. My ped said to watch for unusual stools, like ones that have mucus.

How old is he? It can be normal for kiddos to not gain between 9-12 months. Mine did not even gain 1 ounce in that time period. But it's okay because his output is good and normal, he is just super active.

Please don't wean, bm is so good for him. I know when my kiddo doesn't want his solids, he will at least get a "liquid meal" from me.


The world would be so boring if everyone were the same...
