In 13 hours Eli has had 12 diapers and 2 of them were poop so 14. Sure miss pediatrician, I don't make enough milk! Lol. He is having a growth spurt so hopefully at the next weigh in she will stop pestering me.

What is his weight history? I'll bet that pediatrician has a really whack idea of what the gain should be, especially for the EBF baby.

Oh he has definitely had gaining issues. He has started gaining 4-6 oz a weeks since I cut dairy though. She just wants him to gain a pound a week so he catches up. I am no longer worried unless something changes.

Trying to make a baby gain a pound a week unnaturally will lead to overfeeding and possibly obesity.
That doctor is CRAZY!!!

She more than doubled so seems good to me but what do I know? My son weighed exactly double your dd's lowest when he was born. So big chunk turned into string bean.

A pound a week on a baby would cause stretch marks and stomach pains. At least that's what the nurse hotline told me when I mentioned something similar to that when my old ped said my daughter had gaining issues. She's now a 35lb 3 yr old and still underweight according to the chart he wrote out for me.

it sounds like you seriously need a new pedi. I don't understand when they say they need to "catch up" and gain a lot in a short time. I feel like the ultimate goal should be get them to gain steadily again.

Hehe my oldest at 7.5 was 48 lbs. and wore a size 5 shorts, right before baby in October. Since then he has magically gained and gone to size 8 pants and 56 lbs, I had to buy and rebuy clothing after the new baby.

She can tell that ped sometimes babies have their own time to "catch up".

They look starved don't they! :)
