Yesterday was baby’s 15th month wellness checkup. The appointment time that is convenient for us is in the afternoon. So we arrived at 2 P.M. at the doctor’s office. My husband met us there to be with us.
My little girl is still in the average percentile in the growth chart. But I am worried about her weight. She did not gain much in three months. I feel like I did not do my best in taking care of her. I remember reading an article from BabyCenter.com that in toddler stage, children’s growth will slow down. They become picky eaters. And because of being super active, their bodies burn lots of energy.
The pediatrician asked if my baby eats four times a day. I said usually she eats three times a day. That is what concerns me. She said that baby should eat four times a day including the snack. I felt bad about it because I only feed my daughter three times a day. Now I feel frustrated. Our refrigerator should contain lots of nutritious foods for baby. I am not saying we do not have any. What I mean is that I should be responsible and diligent in preparing good food for my beloved daughter.
