well at least I want to. after my sons pcm told nd to stop feeding him and give him water because apparently he's tip fat. I ebf but according to her he's too big and needs to be fed less. he eats about every 2 hours (opposes to every 45 min 3months ago) and ave told me to lessen it to 4 hours or less. with water between feedings.

this was my first time meeting with her and I'm done.

I'd tell her to shove it. Each baby gains differently.

22 pounds...how old is he?  I think all kids are different therefore their needs are different.  I'd find a new doctor!  Hugs!

Does he fall according to this infant weight chart?

>_<  i swear, i hate how uneducated some drs are when it comes to breastfeeding.. my daughter was 16lbs at 6 months:) she was a little ball of fat.. but was only 21 or 22 lbs at 2:) once she was walking and running she thinned out and NEEDED all that fat to support her metabolism:)
