At 5 1/2 months, Preston is eating approximately 4 x 8oz bottles per day. I haven't started him on any solids yet, because he's not 6 months old yet.
I guess I'm just wondering if he's eating enough per day. He doesn't seem to be gaining any weight over the last 2-3 weeks. I've been weighing him at home, and he's been kind of fluctuating in weight. One day he'll be 17 lbs 4 oz. The next time he'll be 17 lbs 2 oz. And then the next time he'll be 17 lbs 6 oz.
Does their weight gain slow down around this time?
Preston has a doctor's appointment in 3 weeks for his 6 month needles, so I'll inquire about it then. And we should get the okay to start him on solids then. I'd just like to know other mom's input to see what they think.
My older son Reilly has always been small, so I never worried about his weight.
This is probably just me over-reacting, and being a concerned mom, but any input would be great
