Well, we had LO's 4 month appointment yesterday, he is just over 4.5 months. The nurse came in and weighed and measured him then the doctor came in after. Well, he does the usual, checks his spine, his testicles, his ears etc and says he is very healthy and i don't need to see him until maybe next year! Anyway, so he says, well you could start him on solids, he weighs as much as a 6 month baby and his lenght is that of an 8 month baby! He was 18lbs. Well, first of all, i thought he will see him more during his first year, we have community nurses and we have frequent appointments with them but what he implied is i can see him a year from now. I can obviously see him if LO is sick or when needed but one whole year seems too much. Secondly, LO is not ready for solids for sure, plus if he was as much as a 6 month baby i surely shouldn't be rushing to solids. He is not chubby at all, his weight is well distributed. And third, is it common with babies to be this big? I didn't even have enough time to ask questions because he moves really fast. Now i am confused whether to seriously start solids, i really don't want to Does anyone else have the same experience, what did you do?
