I feel like th e worst mom ever! I BF'd my 9 month old since birth. He doesn't get formula. Won't take a bottle etc. We had his doctors appt. today and I was concerend about his weight. He is 17 pounds and 28 inches long. He has been 17 pounds now for a month or two. So I told his ped. about it. She weighed him and said everything is fine. After she put his weight in the growth chart it said he is in the 5th-10th percentile in weight!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I told her he breastfeeds alot durning the day and twice at night still. He does get a big breakfast of ceral and I mix formula and yogurt or some fruit with his ceral. He also eatsa a big dinner. He won't really eat lunch much. Like today, he only ate a jar of veggies and he didnt want anymore. Sometime he just wants me and not food. So she was telling me to stop breastfeeding him so much durning the day and give him more food. She said to give him soilds first then BF'd. She said after 6 months they need more then just breast milk. so they gave him iron drops and I have to come back every month to weigh him. I feel so bad. I want to keep breastfeeding him, which I will but I just feel like I starved him or something. KWIM? My other 3 kids only BF'd for 3-4 months then went on formula and soilds around 6 months and ate like hogs and never had a weight problem. He doesn't look skinny at all he just looks small for his age I guess. My other kids were huge at 9 months but didn't bf'd this long. I have always heard BF'd kids are smaller so I just figured that is why my 9 month old is small. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> How do women BF'd their kids for 2+ years? I want to do this but seems like I am failing.
