We were at the March 10 Day. Since coming home my husband, Dan continues it improve! He was the bearded one! Anyway we have made a huge impact on our 8 children and they are taking notice of this way of eating!
My daughter's 6 month old baby is just under 12 lbs. he started out small under 6lbs and had eating problems that eventually surgery to repair two inguinal hernias. At his Dr's visit yesterday my daughter got an earful on him being underweight. Of course they recommended all the wrong things. She has in the past month tried to introduce solids along with nursing but he seems to be uncomfortable and cries. Also he nurses too often not lasting more than 2 hours sometimes every hour!
I have recommended that she increase the good fats in her diet to make sure her milk has a good amount in her milk. She is not very good about eating well, she smokes and drinks coffee! Here I what I recommended and bought for her and baby.
First to try plain mashed potatoes for him.
She should add;
Before we began the McDougall program, if my daughters didn't nurse we would make our own goats formula. She is contemplating supplementing with that!
Any advice or articles would be appreciated.
