Worried- Baby is eating but not gaining weight--UPDATE


I have been watching Coco's weight. She went from the 20% for weight to the 10%. I decided I would weigh her and track in between the 4 and 6 month visits. I weighed her a week and a half ago and she weighed 12.6 pounds. Weighed her today 12.6 pounds. I am in a panic and headed to the pediatrician. Worried. Say a prayer for my sweet Coco that nothing's wrong.

UPDATE:
All is well. Coco gained since her last docs visit and is skinny but on track. I am staying on top of it though. She also went up in height and head circumference and also is on track developmentally. Phew. I will say though that Miss Coco flirted non stop with her pediatrician, Dr. Scott. I think she's trying to nab herself a doctor. LOL.

She's so cute. Crossing my fingers. I remember those early anxieties. So exhausting.

There is a FABULOUS book I recommend to all moms & pregnant women I know - Real Food for Mother and Baby by Nina Planck...it's a must read. Good luck @ the Dr.!

Ugh - I remember worrying so much about what my babies ate and whether they were gaining weight or not. It's so hard when they are little. I am so glad you were able to get in to the DR and get confirmation that all is on track.

Glad all is ok! Both of my kids were/are so different with their milestones. It will probably be the same with your two. Don't all of us wish we could eat and not gain weight? She is so cute.

She is just a petite little peanut. Hey, a girl has to look good right? My kids were just mack trucks (still are)! She will fatten right up with solids. Put some oatmeal in her bottle. Make the hole a little bigger so she can suck it through. I swear she will fatten right up and sleep through the night. GUARANTEE!!!!

You are both in my thoughts! I am sure everything will be fine though - they seem to grow and gain weight in spurts at that age! It has been fab catching up on your blog - I love your honesty and advice - and Coco has grown up so fast!!!

I am so glad the doctor thinks Coco is doing fine. She certainly looks happy and healthy! You are smart to follow your intuition and check up on these things, though.

Have I told you how much I love your new blog header?

Glad to read the update while reading this post. Maybe she was interviewing for a future position? I want to convince my kids to be a doctor and a dentist. A mom can dream....

SOOOO glad to hear it went well!!!

Preppy Mama said...

Wonderful. So good to hear.

I'm glad everything is OK. We went through something similar with Lorelai, but it was all OK...She was just a tiny one.

Kate said...

I am glad she is doing ok now!

Love that photo. The dog of the family I used to sit for (got that?) always sat with the baby/never left his side. So cute!
