My 11 month old has always been small. He's been around the 20th percentile his whole life. At his 9 month check up he dropped to the 10th percentile but is still gaining. The doctor didn't seem concerned at all saying that he's gaining still, and reaching milstones fine and seems a very healthy and active baby. (And yes...active is right!!) But this completely freaked me out! Now for 2 months I've been on a mission to get him to gain more weight with complete exhaustion on my part. When he's full he wants NO more part in eating. I've begun supplementing with formula as well to get his weight up but it hasn't made a difference and he will knock the bottle down when done and fuss if I offer it again. Part of me kinda wants to hear I'm over-reacting, but the weight thing makes me nervous!! He's 30 inches long and 18 pounds 8 oz. Any help would be appreciated!
