Hi ladies. I'm after your honest opinions on the advice I received at bubs 4 month check with the clinic nurse.
- Apart from a brief jump after the 6 week growth spurt, bub has pretty much been consistently on the 15th percentile for weight/length etc. He is a smaller bub than his big brother was.
- bub had some posseting problems. Has improved over the last couple of months but still has a little chuck most feeds.
Advice from clinic nurse:
1) "you need to wake bub overnight for a feed. 10 hours is too long to go without a drink."
2) Nurse: "hopefully you can exclusively breastfeed for 6 months"
Me: "is that the current recommendation? With my first it was told to start solids between 4 and 6 months."
Nurse: "that's if bub is ready. If he is holding himself up like he is doing now, watches you eating and doesn't push good out when you put it in his mouth you can start him on Farex."
