 i took my daughter to her 9 mnth checkup on valentines day

she weighed 14 almost 15 lbs ,the doc said she was below the lowest percintile on the charts , i hate how they go by "charts"

so they said to add an extra scoop of formula to her bottles ( 3 scoops to 5oz ) she really only drink 2-3 oz at a time but usaually finishes it within the hr before it goes bad , she likes baby food but doesnt eat a whole jar yet

they said they hope shes gained more weight by her 12 mnth apt if not they will go about it from there .. once she starts gettin teeth i think shell gain more because shell be able to eat more things she has one tooth btw

 have you had this issue?? . im trying not to stress about it ,shes healthy and happy ,thats what matters

 

 

share your stories ..do u have a small baby ?

No help here my DD was born 10lbs and now at 27 months weights 35 lbs. Maybe it just depends on her metabolism too.

Milk has more calories than table foods. Try offering food high in good fats like avocado and sweet potato

My daughter was born early due to IUGR. She has always been small, her height and weight falling in the 5th percentile or even dropping off the charts altogether. Her weight wasn't even ON the charts until she was about 6 months old. Her pediatrician did at one point classify her as failure to thrive at about 18 months old but for the most part they said that as long as she is growing at a curve (i.e., continuously gaining weight at a steady pace) that she was fine. The only thing that they did was 'prescribe' her a Pediasure a day. They helped her gain 2 pounds in 3 months and got her back on the charts and off of the FTT area. She will be 3 in June and only weighs 24 pounds.
