Long story short. My cousin had her baby taken away at 12 mo old because he had not gained any weight in 6 months. Come to find out,she had been giving him water and Juice only for those 6 months. No formula. At a year he was 12 lbs. He was given to his paternal grandma. CPS said that if he was not steadily gaining weight,he'd be removed from her care. At first he was gaining a few oz's a week,but now at almost 2 1/2,he hasn't gained any weight in several months,and has actually lost 2 lbs after a cold. He's now 24 lbs. CPS isn't planning on removing him.Liars.
He's basically the weight,height,and build of a 15 month old child. You'd swear he was that young if you saw him.
I tried researching what this lack of growth is doing to him,and what it means for his future,but i couldn't find much info.
I know that kids grow quite a bit up to 3,and then it slacks off.
Could he end up like 4'8 or 4'9 and 100 lbs or something?
Could he end up with retardation?
No one seems too concerned that he's so little. Its like they think he'll magically grow to a normal size somewhere in the future. I'm so worried that the lack of growth means EVERYTHING isn't developing.
