13 Month Old Is Only 19 Pounds

today we went to Braydens dr appt.. a well check.. well, when she put him on the scale and it said "18" pounds, she wasnt suprised, but inside i was like, What the? then when she came back with a different scale, i figured she WAS alarmed, but hadnt shown it. so on the digital scale he was 19 pounds. my son has been breastfed since birth, and he still nurses occasionally during the day, usually when he wants to go to sleep. i would say im more of a human pacifier than a food source. lol. however he does eat other things...gerber...

Breastfeeding, Biting/Teething on Nipple, and a Cold

Hi all, I am wondering what to do with my son. He has been sick the last few days and I think he is teething again and so when I try to feed him he bites down on my nipple. It really hurts! So I have been pumping, but of course I am not producing very much. He does not seem to want much either. I am not sure to just change over to formula full time, which he has every once an a while, or to just keep pumping until he stops teething. I want to keep nursing at least till he is a year old but I can not stand my nipples hurting!!!

He Will NOT Take a bottle...help

My 2 month old loves nursing and I love nursing him, too. However, I go back to work in a month so we have been trying to use the bottle a little to prepare him for daycare. Also, with it being the holidays we have different parties to go to and he won't take a bottle for his grandparents (babysitting). When it's breast milk he seems interested but will not suck on the bottle and when it is formula it's worse. Any suggestions of how to get him to take the bottle?

6 Month Old Baby Boy Will Not Take Formula

My 6 month old baby boy only takes breastmilk. I nurse or pump every 3 hrs to continue to produce, but it seems like my baby is not getting full. Keep in mind he eats cereal in the morning and he is given 1st foods about dinner time. I would like to give him some formula but he will not take it. I will also be returning to work in about a week and would like to leave formula with babystiiter just in case. I also started my menstrual and noticed that my supply was low, but only thankful that I had breastmilk stored in freezer. I once had 3...

Breastfeeding and Sick

I don't know what is up with my immune system, but I seem to get sick quite often. If my son is sick, I'll get sick too. He was fine for the first six months and I attributed that to my breastfeeding. But since the beginning of this year, I've been sick three times as well as my son. My issue is that I obviously don't get much rest with a 9 month old. Most of the medications out there are not recommended if you're nursing. What can I do? I drink lots of liquids and am taking vitamins, etc. Is there anything else I can do? ...
