Seems like after every well child check I'm on here teary eyed because my doc ALWAYS makes me worry and feel bad. This time, I am definitely changing docs, at least for a second opinion. Our 9 month well child check was rescheduled twice, so she ended up being 10 months old when we went in. Last time we went in at 6 months, the doc was all worked up because LO couldn't sit up on her own and wasn't passing toys from one hand to the other. She said she had concerns about her development. THIS time we go in, and she's content with her development, but she doesn't like her weight gain. She has fallen below the curve two weight checks in a row, and actually fell off the chart this time, but is 20th percentile for height and 50th for head. LO was breastfed exclusively until 6 months, and since then we have added rice cereal, veggies, fruit and the meat and grain combos. She eats everything we give her and loves it! She has never had any other foods though, as I thought we were doing what was recommended. Now my doc is telling me she is borderline failure to thrive and I should start giving her some formula bottles, peanut butter, fatty table food, mashed potatoes, etc. She said if she doesn't gain weight by her weight check next month, she wants to do all sorts of metabolic testing. Don't get me wrong--I am ALL for taking care of a problem my baby MAY have....but I don't want to put her through it plus spend the money if it's just what her little body type is! My husband has naturally high metabolism, he's tall and thin. I also have a medium to small frame. LO is VERY active, crawls all over all the time, pulls up on everything, walks along the furniture when she is holding on, RUNS around when she's in her walker . She is happy, smiley, content, naps during the day and sleeps 10-12 hours almost every night. I also feel like every dr. appointment since I've had LO, our doc has something she is SO worried about that ends up being NOTHING so she is kind of losing credibility with my husband and me. I don't want to push table foods too quickly as I just feel like she may not quite be ready. But in addition to advice about this weight issue, I am looking for tips on how to start introducing more solid food than baby foods. Also, ideas for WHAT table foods to start first after baby foods, as my doc seemed reluctant to give me any ideas. Sorry so long. I KNOW you all know how a worried mama gets.
