I just won the award for words worst mother, I took DD to her Well Baby Check up and it had been 3 months, she had only gained 4 oz...I EBF and at 6 months old I started giving her babyfood and cereal like the Pedi said I could..well I didnt know that I also was supposed to be giving her table food and stuff, she said she can eat anything that doesnt need to be cut with a knife, well I have just been feeding her the baby food, and tried cheerios for the first time last month and she would just choke everytime she would eat one..well she still doesnt have teeth so I thought if she could handle cheerios then she couldnt handle table food. So I just kept feeding her baby food and breastfeeding on demand..well this check-up she wasnt even on the chart for her weight...I feel like the worlds worst mom and biggest idiot!! I had nooo idea...and now my baby is malnourished because of me!Answer Question

You don't have to give your baby table food. It sounds like she's not getting enough calories from your breastmilk. Maybe you could beef up the caloric intake?
