Great WIC Appointment plus baby pic!

Oh I love my WIC office so breastfeeding friendly :)

We had our first appt since Trystan was born in January this morning. The lady was super excited when i said he was NOT on formula and my goal is to bf till at least a year with delayed solids :) she said even with ff babies they try to stress to mom to delay to at least 7 months anyway and dont start giving baby food vouchers till then but will delay longer if babies pediatrician tells them too. So now my plan is to educate our pedi about delayed solids and get her to agree to telling them no baby food at all will be needed to we can do baby led solids.

Anyway I havent lost or gained since his birth and my iron was beyond excellent :)

My 3 yr old is 27.2 pounds and 37 1/4 inches. Yes hes a tiny thing and was ff.

Trystan is shy of 3 months, 10# 11ozs and 22 1/4 inches.

Sounds like my boy . He just turned 3 a few weeks ago and he's 28 lbs and 36 inches tall . He's tiny too . And he was FF . But we have lots of short PP on my side and hubby's side of the family .... My DD just turned 5 months And is 14 lbs 25 inches tall . I plan to BF a year. I'm just glad I made it this long cuz my son I stopped BFding at 10 weeks :(

Tall skinny people run im my family but then both my boys were preemies. Dante was 8 weeks early and 2# 13ozs and 15 1/4 inches. I honestly hope he grows soon or Trystan will out weigh him soon.

Oh and Trystan was 6 weeks early and 3# 15ozs and 16 inches.

I didn't know there was such a thing as a great wic appointment. Lol! That's awesome they are so supportive. I'm about to move to Asheville, nc and they are very bf friendly. I'm hoping the wic office there is too!
