Well the main thing that the Dr ever told us to do was keep up with the solids even though they were not yet 6months. After they reached 1yr I was told to add in dry milk to their whole milk to add calories, and use only whole milk products for them. I also mix in dry milk powder to their soups, potatoes, etc. They also get carnation instant breakfast at least 2-3x's a week. We have finally topped 22lbs at 16.5 months. My FIL actually mentioned the other day that they are starting to look positivly chubby,
I bf'd Nadia until she was 16months. She could not handle solids until she was 9 months. At 12months the ped told me to quit bf'ing asap, I told him no. He told me to put her onto formula, I told him she was lactose intolerant and could not have it. He told me to put her on soy formula and I laughed at him, I told him she is not going on soy it is worse than dairy. He told me to cut down to bf'ing 3 times a day max, I bf'd her 3 times a day and she nursed all night. He told me to add 1tbsp of margerine to everything she eats that we'd worry about cholesterol later( ) I stopped listening to him.
