Now that my "secret's out" I wanted to reply to this.
Conner is on 8oz of formula every 3 hours SOLID. And sometimes instead (Or on top) the bottle he gets 2 jars of stage 2 baby food. He eats table scraps, Graduates, Mum Mums, whatever he can, basically.
He hasn't gained an ounce in over a month. *Shrugs*
2 months, 11.6.
4 months, 12.4.
6 months, 14.6.
Three days ago, 14.6. I weighed myself then held him and subtracted the difference.
2 months, 22 3/4''.
4 months, 25''.
6 months, 28''!!!
Basically, keep doing what you're doing because your baby is fine. It doesn't matter what she's ingesting, she's going to gain as she damn well pleases. Trust me. I am SO thankful it is that way though, because everyone used to blame my BM for how skinny Conner was so I am SOOO happy that he stayed that way after he was weaned.
