I knew I loved DDs pediatrician!! Went for her 2 mo appt and she had gained another lb this month (yay) now 9 lbs 3 oz and when the doc came in she showed me the dreaded chart and she said I think shes doing great in gain. And not to worry about being at 5% on the chart because it's just the CDC chart which is based on ff as the norm. As long as she's gaining & getting longer not to worry.

Then she went in to say the reason ff'd babies get so chubby is because it's full of sugars & fats and breastmilk is so much more nutritious that babies aren't going to get fat & just to let DD feed on demand!!

I love this doctor.

That's awesome. But I do know many bf babies that are/were chubby and many ff babies that were skinny.

I agree. My oldest was ff and he was long/tall and skinny.
