My littlegirl, is well, little. She is 28.5 inches and 17lbs 13 oz. She is meeting almost all of her milestones but STOPPED sleeping through the night at 6 month. That is when her weight started to dip down.
Now, the Doctor said she needs to see weight gain or they are sending her to ccmc for failure to thrive.
I don't know what to do, I feed her every 2 hours, she has never liked stage 3 foods and certain foods she chews and then spits out if she chews too long. I gag if I chew too long so mayb it is herditary.
I am only 5' tall and my mil is 100 lbs soaking wet and 5'2" maybe if that. Maybe Alexanderia is just going to be small.
Alexa still wants to nurse but the doctor said NO MORE, she isn't getting the calories she needs in BM anymore. I have been trying to wean but we will not tell you how that is going, she throws fits. Try getting her to go to sleep is terrible when she wakes up screaming.
Any help? Anyone been through this?
Wish I could post pictures, will hopefully upload some soon.
