At 6 months old my little man got gastro and lost some weight (approx 600g) but has now returned to his weight on the 50th percentile. I just had him weighed by the child health nurse and his weight has dropped again (about 80g in the last week). He weighs 8.33kg according to today's scale.
Now he eats what I think is a lot most days (but I have nothing to compare to). He is still breastfed and will go through a banana a day plus a serving of pureed fruit of veg equivalent to the jars @ woolies/coles etc, and a few bits of toast or milk arrowroot biscuits and sometimes some baby cereal although he is not crazy about that.
The nurse has been emphasizing that I should be packing more protein into his diet and feeding him meats...I guess I would have to puree with some veg but I am just not sure. He seems so young still!
I should also say he is a VERY active baby and is already crawling, climbing and beginning to walk along furniture, so I think he burns a lot of the food that he takes in.
What do you think? Am I feeding him enough? He doesn't seem hungry....
Any suggestions on what I can add to his diet would be appreciated.
Oh he also likes baby yoghurts....
