My dd just turned 1 and we just got back from her 12mo check up. She was 7.6lb and 20" at birth. By 2 mo she was at 12lbs and 3mo she was at 14lbs.
Now she's almost 30 inches, but still a tad shy of 20lbs. So, 75% for height and 25% for weight. I;m not SUPER concerned b/c dh and I are both tall and thin, but I know my milk supply seems low to me and I am afraid she's not getting enough to eat.
She was down to 3-4 nursing sessions a day, but the last few weeks she has wanted to nurse a lot more often. She has started going back and forth, from one boob to the other and back again...like "hmm, this one's empty, let me try the other one...nope, that's no good either, back to the first one, etc..." She was always a one boob at a time girl. Only occasionally drank from both in one sitting. Now it's always both and the back & forth thing. The only time I feel like she gets a good feed is in the morning. She takes one side for 5-6 minutes and then the other side for the same and then she's done. She's always been a quick nurser.
She seems to eat aaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllll day long and is always asking (signing) for food. She has about 12 tablespoons of oatmeal in the morning (30 minutes or so after her wake-up BF), then more BM around 9am, then a solids snack around 11, then solids for lunch around 12:30, more BM at 1:30, a solids snack around 3:30, solids for dinner around 5:30 and then a good-night BF around 6:30. She typically sleeps through the night and I rarely feed her in the night if she does wake up.She only drinks water from a cup. No formula no cows milk.
So...I don't mind that she grazes all day...solids and bm, but I am a bit worried that she seems hungry all the time! Should I give her some whole milk? Do I need to increase her solid food intake?
