We had Robin's one year pedi visit today, and I left feeling really frustrated. Some things that happened:
1) I asked my pedi how I should go about introducing WCM and he said, "Put it in a sippy cup and give it to him." No sh!t, right? Like I couldn't figure that one out on my own.
2) He told me I should stop breastfeeding because Robin has teeth.
3) He told me I shouldn't be giving him water, only milk, because there was no way I was producing enough BM for him anymore. (He still nurses 3x a day, so I'm guessing he's getting at least 12oz of milk still.)
4) He gave me totally outdated information about how much milk Robin should be getting. He told me 24-32oz of milk per day. I looked it up and AAP recommends 16-20oz of dairy a day.
He also told me I should keep feeding him baby oatmeal until he's at least 18 months old. This is one I've been smiling and nodding at since his 6 month visit, because we haven't given R baby cereal since the first few weeks he started solids, but it's still annoying to hear.
On the plus side, my little boy who at 3 months had completely fallen off the growth charts and was below the 1st percentile for weight is now in the 55th percentile for his weight at a hefty 22lbs 13oz.
