I think I am getting questionable advice from our ped. Today she told me I should not be nursing more than 3 times a day because babies who nurse past a year wont gain weight properly if they are nursed more than 3 times a day. She also told me a few months ago that B was probably not allergic to peanuts and we should try peanut butter again in a month .
Um, yeah, drop her and find a new one. What's the point of a ped that you can't trust when it comes to very basic science? Peanut allergy? Yeah, no peanuts until at least 3. Breastfeeding? Whenever, wherever, whatever amount for as long as it works for mom and child. Ridiculous. Allergy babies tend to be skinny. I bet she'll catch up when her body starts to get things straightened out. Have you considered a homeopathic remedy? We did that with Avalon and it was miraculous. Literally b/c I'm not sure I buy into to homeopathy, but it's hard to dispute what happened.
