Ashlyn May... 4 Months Old & Shrinking?

Though I'm obviously still cute as a button, I have taken a few steps back as of weight gain lately. At my 4 month check-up I only weighed in at just over 11 pounds. The nurse said I should be closer to 14 lbs at my age, so she wanted to see me again in a week. Well, mommy took me in a week later and unfortunately I had dropped weight again. My most current weight: 10 lbs 12 oz. My doctor, Dr. Okey, told mom to try feed me formula after breast feeding and maybe that would help. The problem with that however, I don't do bottles. I'm all natural if you know what I mean. So mom has a syringe she can use if I won't suck on the bottle. I'm slowly learning, but not with a lot of progress. Mom and dad have also started me on some solid food, well rice cereal anyways if you can call that solid. So far I've only had it once, and I have mixed reviews. Let's just say the jury is still out on that one. Look at me pretty-o on my video...
