    Bella was just under doubling her birthweight at her 6 month appointment.
    he was 7 lbs 3 oz. He was 9 lbs by the time he was two weeks old. About 12 by the time he was two months. He was between 14 and 15 pounds at 4 months and now he's 15 1/2 pounds. I have started working him up on formula. He's now eating 6 oz ever 3 1/2 hours as opposed to 4 oz. He's still getting three servings of solids a day.

    I'm going to be getting him switched to a different ped. I really don't like this one. Another one of his little gems of advice is that whenever he sucks on his pacifier, he's hungry... Matt sucks on his pacifier in his sleep! So does that mean he wants to eat instead of sleep??? This doctor doesn't make any sense.
