Anyone have a failure to thrive child with NO symptoms or problems?!
My daughter has been FTT since 6 months or younger. She has had myriads of tests done, and everything comes back normal. Her GI doctor is at the end of her rope, and she's been cleared from Endocrinology as well.I was wondering if anyone else is having problems also. I've met other FTT kids, but they also had other medical concerns, like being a preemie or heart problems. She is going to see Genetics next month and I am still wary of whether this is a good decision. I'm 5'4, 130 pds. Dh is 5'11 and around 155.Our dd is 2.5 yrs and 24 pds. So, naturally, we do checkups JUST to check her weight and to have her pediatricians keep up with it....to reassure us, nothing is wrong.We have tried carnation breakfast mixes, crazy straws (to help with milk intake, making a game of it), we tried follow up formula, we have tried Pediasure, when she was 1 and dr's took her off of it, because she refused to drink it, NOW, they are putting her back on it....and i am know she won't drink it...and am desperate for ways to hide calories in her foods!! She does get vitamin supplement. I am thinking it may be a behavioral issue at this point, but who knows?
