Solids in general are a no-no until at least 6 months
Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended until 6 months. Babies can then sit up and feed themselves fork mashed yams, bananas, or avocados. There is no need to "make" baby food. Even if a baby is fed formula it is recommended to wait until around 6 months.
Time for a new doctor! This doctor is not following nutrition guidelines. If she is large you have been feeding her too much. She should get about 32 oz of formula a day. If she wants to suck more she can use a pacifier. Babies aren't developmentally ready for solids at 3 months no matter how big they are. Their gut isn't mature enough.
