My daughter is 15 months old and between 9 and 12 months she only gained 4 oz. Then at 14 months she lost a whole pound. I started her on pediasure and 15 months she had gained that pound back. But she doesnt like to eat. My ped asked me how many she was drinking a day and I said 3. She said 3 is a full days diet so to cut it down to 1 or 2 so she will want to eat more. I did that and about 2 wks later she lost 7 ounces. I talked to the ped again about her weight and she said that around 15-18 months a lot of babies dont want to eat but they dont normally loose weight. We decided to go ahead and start giving her 3 pediasure a day again. She also suggested to keep as many different finger foods in the house as possible. Do you guys have any advice?Answer Question
*here is a little background on sydni*
She was exclusively breastfed til about 11 months. Then she got maybe 1 jar of babyfood a day but still nursing. Between 12 and 13 months she got to where she would eat 1 to 1 1/2 grilled cheese sandwiches and then around 14 months she got to where she would barely eat 1/2 a sandwich. All of her eating has decreased. (I'm just using the sandwich as an example b/c all her meals decreased like that.) I think she is about done nursing so she isnt getting much from me at all. What do I do?

to the anonymous: there is no way in HELL I would go see another pediatrician. She has been in my family for 12 yrs and she knows us as people/friends not just patients.
