Jaydens 1 update....Dr says hes too small for 1.Need advice.
My Son Jayden turned 1 on April 18th. He had a check up with his pediatrician April 21st. He weighs 20.14lbs and is 29in long. Hes very smart and the survey that they make us do at the beginning was all yes answers. The Dr said hes to small for his age and should be 22lbs now. Even told me he needed more calorie intake. To even put ice cream in his bottles. Nuts I know. And I disagree with this. I think he eats enough. I think hes gonna be tall and skinny just like his Daddy. But I wanna see what u mommys think about his eating habits.
Heres what we did yesterday
Woke up at 7am- He had a 8oz bottle.(Cow milk)
Breakfast 10:00AM- 3 Scoops of cereal (formula scoops), With smashed bananas, Milk in a sippy, 2 cookies, and a handful of cheerios
Bottle 2:30- 6oz
Lunch 3:30- Peanut butter sandwich, without the crust, sippy of juice, 1 cookie
7:00- He had a couple small pieces of my pizza. Probably 15 pieces or so...Small little pieces and juice. (He usually has a yogurt with fruit but we forgot it at the store.
8:30- Bath time, zyrtec, 8oz bottle with 2 scoops of cereal.
He was in bed by 9.
He got up around 1am this morning. Ate a 6oz bottle. Slept till 8am. Had cereal and mashed bananas at 8:30AM. He usually eats breakfast at 830-9 and it can be cherrios, baby cereal and fruit, pancakes and eggs. Just depends. He usually naps around noon or 1. Can be up to a hour or longer. Then lunch is sometimes different. He usually eats it around 2 or 3. Can usually have a sanwich, raviollis, macaroni, boiled veggies. Then he usually eats whatever I have in between. Inless its too spicy or saucy. His snacks in between are usually vanilla wafer cookies, cereal bars, dry cereal or yogurt melts or veggie melts. Dinners usually always around 5 or 6 and is always a yoplait yougurt. Bedtimes always around 830-9. He gets 1 nap a day that can last from 45min to 2 hours. He usually eats 3 8oz bottles a day.But sometimes he waste some. So why would he be to small for my Dr. She asked if he eats. That boy eats more then I do. I usually get 1 meal a day and 5 hours of sleep. He eats 6 or 7 times a day including when I eat, bottle and snacks and sleeps for 13 or 14 hours a day. I think the Drs nuts. What do you guys think. Should I feed him more? Is he sleeping and eating enough? Thanks for the help Mommys. =)
