So we had Ashley's 4 month check-up today and as I feared she's not where she needs to be in terms of weight gain/growth :(

She weighed in at 12lbs 7oz and 23 1/4 inches long.

I'm glad Ashley is developmentally on track even though her weight gain isn't where you'd all like it to be. We had a similar experience today as well (I'll post later).

Our ped. wants us to put rice cereal in Jenna's bottles (1 teas. per ounce) and to also give her a healthy serving of rice cereal at her second feeding of the day. The gastro. suggested that I also start supplementing with some formula, starting with just one ounce a day until Jenna gets used to it. Maybe you could try something similar, or ask your ped. about it.

Some babies slow growth at 3-6 months so maybe she is too? She may get a growth spurt again soon. Also if you are bf'ing try adding more healthy fats to your diet and see if that helps too. Good luck, but overall sounds good.

Sorry to hear that you didn't get the report you had hoped but I'm glad to hear she is doing well otherwise.
