Hi my daughter is 8 months and will be 9 months on Oct 12th. I had taken her to the doctor this past monday and I was scolded by her doctor because of her height and weight, she was 24.5 inches tall and only weighed 16.12oz.... she has been EBF until 7 months when I tried to start introducing solids to her, she'd have her days where she'd eat 1/3 to 1/2 a jar of fruits or veggies at a setting then other days wouldnt want anything but my milk. She hasnt started crawling yet she wont pull up on her hands and knees she pushes her hands and scoots backwards but gets mad and will just roll from tummy to back and back on tummy. I feel like she is normal but maybe Im just crazy... anyways I need some parental advice since I've continued to beat myself up after our appointment with my doctor.
Also she was 8lbs and 5oz at birth and was 17 3/4 inches tall Im 5'4 and my husband is 5'8....which my doctor knows this but anyways...
