    Max has 2 cousins
    luccas ( 5months 18lbs/bf only)
    Louis Felix (2 months 15lbs/bf only)


    Max himself is 15lbs and bottle fed + solids 3 times a day. he got BF for 4 months and decided that was enough for himself ! he is always and i do mean always kicking and moving around ..hyperactive already :dohh: he babbles non stop and is soo advanced for his age according to the DR..:happydance:

    Yet every time we visit the family they say "oh hes soo skinny" or "he looks sicky you sure hes eating?" and the one i hate the most is "you should force the boob on him till hes at least 6 months " I swear I leave there so down and feeling like bad mom :cry: I dont know what to think anymore :hissy: he eats like a pig he eats 6 onz each feeding plus his solids .

    Is he too skinny ?theres a pic of the 3 babies
    lucas, max, louis felix for comparison

    All babies are different and carly and ella are the same. Carly has always been 'skinny' its only been this year she has started to fill out and she is 3.
    Even the HV kept asking if i was feeding her ! Course i bloody was!
    Every baby around me is lot bigger then ella aswell.
    I wouldnt worry ;)

    My son Landon is 10 months old, and at his 9 month appointment weighed only 19 pounds! He eats like a little heffer, and was forumla fed since birth as I couldn't breastfeed. To add to his, he's in the 97th percentile for height which equals one string bean looking baby :rofl:. Everyone is different, so try not to worry too much if you know he's eating enough.

    He looks fine to me, happy and healthy isnt that all that matters, my two boys were completely different, at 11 months Dec was 23lbs and at 11 months Dan was 28lbs !!! So each and every baby is different even ones from the same family!!! Lol
