I am new here, but looking for some advice on my baby being slow to grow. I have an almost 9 month old that has only put on 7 pounds since birth. He started off in the 100th percentile and has dropped to below the 5th percentile. He nurses 5-6 times a day until he pulls himself off. He eats 3 meals per day of solids, along with cheerios and Gerber Puffs for snacks. He does not seem like he is not getting enough to eat. He is a very happy, active and content baby, who has met all his milestones on time, if not on the early side (crawling at 4 months, pulling up at 7, standing on his own at 9). He babbles non stop and responds quickly to his name. His doctor is in a panic that he is sick and malnutritioned and ordered all these tests, which have all come back normal. I do not feel there is anything wrong with him, he is just baby that burns off his fat quickly (Both his parents do). I have tried explaining to the doctor that I am not worried about the slow weight gain as long as everything else is normal and she just turns it around to make me feel like a bad mother that is not caring for her child properly and does not care that there is something wrong. I am at my wits end! I do not want to start stuffing my child full of food so that the doctor gets off my case, but at the same time is the doctor right and this should be something I should be more worried about? Does anyone have any suggestions?
