My 8mo old son was eating sweet pototoes, but only those. He is breastfed and will take breastmilk from a bottle finally after a month of working with him to do this. He is having difficulty gaining weight and i am concerned about it. He is my 4th son and i never had this problem with the other boys. He was born 8lbs 3oz and now only weighs a little over 13lbs as of last week. I have a earlyl childhood development degree so i knew to call in early intervention when i noticed his low tone. He is not sitting up, crawling or even rolling over, except from belly to back. I am hoping that once we get his weight and strenght up that his developmental delay will no longer be an issue. I dont know what to think of this. I am wondering if it could be something genetic, behavioral or with the feeding issues something to do with reflux. Has anybody else experienced this? I have already talked with my pediatritian and his bloodwork came back fine. My next step is to go to childrens hosp here in PGH and get him eveal. in the developmental specialty unit. I am doing what i can for him...i am just wondering if any other moms had a similsr experience and what the outcome was. Thanks.....oh and please no rude comments i am already upset unough.Answer Question
