Ok ladies a little background on my son, he was diagnosed with acid reflux as a baby, and he is severely lactose intolerant. He has grown out of the reflux for the most part, but is still severely lactose intolerant. When he was little, before he was diagnosed with his reflux and lactose intolerance, he was breastfeed. He threw up almost everything he ate, and screamed constantly. The only thing that helped was when I held him, so it seemed like I was holding him 24/7, which was fine with me if it helped him feel better. Everyone would always tell me I was spoiling him, but I ignored them. He was eventually put on soy formula and is now on soy milk, so no problems there. When we went in for my sons 6 month check up, he weighed 22 pounds. All my kids were chunky babies so I wasnt worried about that. Well we recently went for his 12 month check up, and he weighed 23 pounds, which seemed odd to me, because he had only gained 1 pound over a course of 7 months. The doctor said it was fine, my son had gotten taller, just not heavier. So I was like ok, no big deal. Well now my son is 14 months old and I am having a lot of problems with him. For one, he is totally rejecting his sippy cup now, he only wants his bottle. He has only been like that since my husband deployed about a week or so ago. He screams and cries constantly, unless I am holding him, he is eating/has bottle, or is in his bed. I feel awful because I dont know what to do to help him. He doesnt seem to be in any pain, he just seems sad. Another thing is he still isnt walking, or even trying to. He will walk if I hold both of his hands, but the second I let go he falls on his butt. My daughter was walking right after her 1st birthday, and my step daughter was walking by the time she was 1o months old. He also only says 4 words, dada, mama (not often), no no and ba ba. I just feel like hes not developing as fast as he should, and I feel like I might be doing something wrong. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
