  • My grandson was severely underweight when he came to live with us. The dietician put him on a high fat diet. His foavorite were milkshakes and smoothies. Eventually I could add things like protein powders and Wheat germ to them. Just trial and error.

  • My youngest dd was underweight at 6 mos old because she got a bad case of the flu from a flu shot (one reason we don't do the flu shot anymore). What I did to bulk her up again was feed her egg yolks. Make a soft boiled egg, DO NOT FEED THE EGG WHITE TO A BABY UNDER A YEAR!! and I fed the soft yolk (it's runny) to her. I did this once or twice a day for a week and she gained 1 and 1/2 pounds!!
