I'm a first time mom & my baby will turn 1yo in less than 3 wks.
He was born 2.75kgs, 3 wks early but otherwise healthy. For complicated reasons I couldn't breastfeed him for more than 6wks :'(
He has reached his milestones on time, he started solids by 6 months & is now a super active & playful baby. He crawls all over the house & is close to walking now :)
Both my bf & I have a good metabolism which means we don't put on weight easily.
My baby now weighs 8.5kgs, he drinks 16-18oz of formula in a day, eats solids (porridge of rice/pasta with veggies & chicken or meat) 2 small bowls portions, 1 or 2 Oreo cookies, half a banana or mango, some cheese puffs/curls as snacks & some fruit yogurt.
I'm trying to wean him off formula so I can increase his solid foods intake more, and perhaps put him on completely full milk (which didn't suit him yet, he got constipated :/)
But I'm becomin obsessive now, coz I've come across people who always comment- Oh my! Ur baby is so skinny (and then to add insult to injury)- Oh is ur baby skinny coz ure so skinny urself?
Its so rude! I never comment on anybody's baby's size coz I think its outta line, unless ure asked abt.
So plz put me outta my misery & let me how if my lil munchkin is really too skinny for his age? Or am I bein paranoid caught up in Mompetion?
Also any tips on how to fatten him up? ;)
Thanx in advance to all of u!
