Nope, despite Blaine's triple chin, fatty leg rolls, and Budha Belly, I don't have to put him on a diet. I have to get him to gain some weight!
I was sent home from the pediatrician's office with a can of formula. I pretty much viewed that as a can of failure. What breastfeeding mother wouldn't? The doctor doesn't want me to stop breastfeeding, but maybe offer the formula at meals when we usually give Blaine a cup of water. Shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone, but I really don't want to use the formula! So much to think about......
I'm very torn! Knock on wood, Blaine has been so healthy and is a strong, active little guy. I know he should have grown more than he did in the last three months, but I know he burns soooooooo many calories being an absolute busy body. He never EVER sits still. He eats a lot, poops a lot, pees a lot, and is developing quite normally. I also know he comes from a line of genetically very small, and mostly very skinny people!
So my plan is to offer up more "fatty" foods and see what that does! Baby yogurt, cheese, avocados, and a little butter put on some of his bread. We'll see what happens! We have a weight check in 3 weeks. I'm going to tell Blaine to try not to poop until AFTER his appointment that day. ;)
