Mye finally had her 9 month appointment at nearly 10 and a half months. It was late due to her doctor going on vacation and then our vacation trip to see Mason's dad got in the way. I have been dying to get her in to have her weight checked. I knew she was kind of skinny so I tried to feed her more solids this past month, but apparently it was not enough. Height 27.5 in. 26th percentile. Head 18 in. 83 percentile. (Big head:) She weighs 16lb 4 1/2oz. She is in the 3rd percentile! In 4 months she gained only 3/4 of a pound. Now for us that is rediculous! We are big people. I felt terrible! The Dr. told me to stop breastfeeding and go to straight formula, but I can't quite yet. She has been very healthy and has been doing very well. I know I have milk, but it apparently is not doing the trick. I am going to continue to breastfeed but offer her a tippy cup of formula afterward. Since yesterday she has been drinking 3-4 oz each time I breastfeed. I am praying that that will help. I will give her more if she wants it. I will continue to feed her more food as I have been doing. I had planned to breastfeed until she turned 1. We will see.

Try not to stress about it. She is doing great. All kids are different, and some are just small. Not much longer untils she's one ;)

Thanks for the encouragement.

Oh Lay, she is plenty healthy! Babies always slow down when they become mobile (remember Sey?!) She will plump back up- just like her sister did ;)
Maybe her metabolism is just super! That can't be a bad thing
Asa hasn't gained one pound since he turned two!

Thanks, Shae. The doctor flipped out on me so that didn't help. :0
