How can I put weight on my DS without feeding him crap??
In all honesty I am seriously considering changing pediatricians because of this one issue. My DS is 10yo (as of end of May this year). He has always been small. At his last appointment (July 17th this year) he weighed 47 pounds & is 50 & 3/4 inches (or 4 feet 2 inches) tall. I have talked to his doctor about it & he does not seem concerned about his weight. DS is probably the smallest in his grade (he will be going to 4th grade this fall). His doc tells me "I was a small kid when I was his age". Okay well, that was you & this is my son. His dad & I were not small for our age when we were his age.
A few years ago I tracked what he ate by packing his lunch for school every day for 2 weeks & specifically asked the teachers to not throw anything away. I would pack a uncrustable sandwich, carrot sticks, string cheese, fruit cup, gogurt, & pediasure. Over the course of 2 weeks he gained a half pound.
I do know that he likes smoothies, so I was thinking a protein smoothie every morning might help?
