Quoting AndreaDanae:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Red Bottom:</b>" I have never heard of a doctor telling someone ... [snip!] ... 2 pounds already and there shouldnt be any reason for that. She wanted us to only feed him 2 but I was like umm not happening."
My 1st gained on average 1 lb per week until he was about 8 weeks old. He was only a little over 6 at birth. I was breastfeeding. First she said he ate too often so I must have low supply & i shoudl supplement (I didn't, I just fed on demand) then she said he ate too much & he was gaining too fast & I should schedule him every 4 hrs (I didn't, I just fed on demand) and by the time he was a year he was AVERAGE. he was fat early on - I say GOOD. When she gave me a hard time early on I asked her if she
was going to come over & hold him while he screamed from hour 2 until hour 4 when she said it was "okay" to feed him"? She didn't offer so I just kept on keeping on.
