Just can't win
Well, we have been to the doctor several times over the last month and a half and now the word is that Addy is gaining too much weight. We just can't win. We went from receiving the "failure to thrive" diagnosis at many appointments to now being told that we are feeding her way too much. I personally think that what she eats is just fine. She had so much trouble feeding and coordinating the suck, swallow, and breath just to take the bottle and now she has seemed to figure it all out. She takes the bottle well and we have begun spoon feeding. So far, we haven't found any foods that she doesn't like. She currently weighs 17 pounds, 12 ounces. The doctor seems concerned because she has gained about a pound per week for the last month and a half. Oh well, seems she's making up for lost time. Our goal (says the doctor) is no weight gain for 2 months. Yeah, right. Try doing that with a growing and hungry baby. We'll keep you updated.
