Anyone else here struggle with a slim baby? My little guy has never been super plump (born 6.3 lbs), but since 6 months he's become leaner. He's very beautiful but doesn't have a lot of baby fat, and I feel anxious about it. I feed him 4 times a day. He doesn't love solids, and it takes effort to make him finish 4 jars. At my last well baby visit the doctor said he was too thin and made me feel like a bad parent (He was 15 lbs at 7 month) I'm scheduled for another visit to check on my skinny baby and I'm nervous because nothing has really changed in a month. He is still lean. I'm thinking he's taking after his father, who comes from a family of long lean people. Otherwise he's very high-spirited with amazing energy, has never been sick except for a cold (*knock on wood*) so I try to tell myself to take it easy. But I'm still scared of the next appointment and being called a neglectful mom :(
