So last week we learned that DS actually lost some weight after his 9 months appointment. Now we're trying to figure out what to feed him to get him to gain some weight - the pedi gave some suggestions, but I wanted to see what all of you were doing. Plus, I feel like I'm feeding him ALL the time, and he never seems to want to eat much. I'm still nursing, but here's kind of what we're doing right now.
6:00 - at least 6 oz whole milk in sippy
7:00 - breakfast, usually oatmeal with fruit, 1-2 oz WM
8:30 - nap, nurse
10:30 - snack, usually whole wheat toast with cream cheese, 1-2 oz WM
12:30 - puffs, while I grab some lunch
Lunch is sometimes before his nap, sometimes after, depending on how hungry he seems. I feel like the toast fills him up so he usually doesn't want to eat much until after his nap.
1:30 - nap, nurse
2:30 - lunch, veggie, fruit, 1-2 oz WM
4:30 - sippy of milk, 4-5 oz
6:00 - dinner, veggies and milk
7:30 - bed and nurse
I also sub in yogurt with fruit for a snack sometimes in there, or it's part of his lunch. I guess I'm not really sure what else to do. Feeding him takes 30 minutes, especially if it's finger foods, so he's eating all the time. But I guess that's what it takes to get him to gain some weight? A lot of the time he doesn't even seem that hungry.
Anyway, I'm rambling. Anyone in the same boat? What does your underweight LO eat?
