I didn't think I had much to contribute to this conversation, but something that happened on Friday changed that. As my 4 year old daughter (steady 50th percentile in weight) hung out, William's physician did his 18 month checkup. William was 10th percentile at 15m and now he was 9th, which was no cause for alarm. He did go on to say that the AAP recently changed their recommendations for milk intake from whole milk until 2 yo to low fat, yes, even for kids my son's age, due to the obesity epidemic. I think it's a crock and shame on the doc for even bringing it up.
