Quoting Adriana'sMombie:" thats rediculous! no baby should be on a diet! they eat when theyre hungry and stop when theyre full. ... [snip!] ... smurf that, im not going to starve my child. cant tell me how to parent my own baby. i know her weight will slow down. "That's not gaining too much. My son was 16 pounds at his four month check up, as well. My pedi told me that he was totally healthy. In the 80th percentile for weight. He's gotten super chubby since then, though. Haha. I'd guess he's at least 20 pounds, but I'm not sure.

Quoting Reilly and Lila's Mommy:" It sounds like neglect to me. 2.5 oz is NOT enough for a 6 month old... I could be ok with the schedule ... [snip!] ... what a newborn would eat. And that poor little boy not getting enough food I would start dropping some major hints...."We put sticky notes in his lunch box saying he didn't like such and such food and never eats it... or that he ate his food and was still very hungry... nothing changes.
