Hi! I have a 12 month old baby who has Failure To Thrive and GERD. He has been hospitalized several times for it and had a feeding tube as well for about a month. He refused to eat. To make a long story short his reflux has finally improved from spitting up all day long in big amounts to maybe 3x a week total. He still is not growing and gaining weight and they tried a few things to pack calories in him. He has dropped all the way from the 90th percentile to the 5th and now they are referring him to an Endo to check his growth hormone levels. Any have experience with this? Or problems? I've never been down this road. They currently have him drinking Pediasure 3x a day or 3 bottles total. I am a Mom of 3 so I'm not new to parenting either and know he is being fed plenty.
