My 7 month old has slowed her growth since 5 months old. She is breastfed every 2 hours and eats one meal of solids daily. She meets all her milestone?

If she's falling off the curve or becoming uncharacteristically small, that might be more cause for concern. You'll need to discuss this more in depth with your pediatrician to figure it out. ...Read more
