  • I would call the doc and see what they think. It could be a lot of things... You could look up the symptoms online and see what pops up to get an idea of what questions you need to ask the docs.

  • I don't know what state your in but I don't listen to what WIC has to say before my doctor looks into things they are not DOCTORS they are just people that applied for a job with the state and took a few classes that were mayybe 3-5 hours long and they had the job to tell people what there child should have and what they need andwhat they don't need. My WIC office tells me that my DD is unweight for her age she's 18 months old and she weights 23lbs and is 32 inches long. So you really need to bring your child to his doctor and stop giving him anything that is in making hm sick. Your doctors office should see him right away. Like tomorrow or monday.

  • Yeah, this is totally an issue for your pediatrician. WIC hands out food, and might be dietitians or nurses, maybe, but not doctors.

    And anon, my 14 month old weighs 16 pounds and is really tall. My doc doesn't think she's underweight. I hear you on that. They go on a chart of "average" but they forget that it's not average healthy kids. It's just average overall for every kid in the sample, healthy or unhealthy. She also eats like a freaking horse. Yesterday she ate 2 big banana pancakes, then a banana, then a slice of cheese, and was ready for her snack 2 hours later. She can put it away!

  • You can try rice milk. It has less stuff in it.

  • Maybe try an infant probiotic to help with digestive issues.
