I took my son in for his 9 month on Friday and was told he had only gained 2 oz since his 6 month. He is off the charts small for length as well, only 25 inches. I am not sure what to do to help my son grow. He eats all the time. He nurses every 1.5 to 2 hours and also gets table and baby foods maybe 5 times a day. He is supplemented with formula at daycare as well, so I know it isn't just my milk that is causing him not to grow. His dr told me to stop nursing and that was it. I refuse as I know that is what is best for him. I am not sure what more I can do.Answer Question

Is the formula that he is supplemented with high calorie? My DD had Failure to thrive and have to have a high cal perscription formula. She was off the charts small for her first 7 years before she finally got to a normal weight.
