Emily my almost 11 month old weighs 11 pounds..Her gastro. is admitting her to the hospital on wed. he said unless she gains quite a bit before then..I am nervous about her being admitted, has anyone else went through this with their baby?

Wow I hope everything is okay.

My little guy is 2 months old and just hit 10 pounds. He's in the 17th percentile so he is little but not like super tiny or anything.

Thanks, yeah she is diagnosed FTT. She is pretty far off the chart as you could imagine...idk we have been doing a wild goose chase with her weight since she has been born. She'll gain good just enough to where they wont admit her thinking she will keep on that track, then her weight gain slows waaay down. this last weight in she gained 9 grams a day, And I guess it should be around 30. What I dont understand is they want to admit her for a feeding tube..yet she eats about every half hour yesterday no joke she went through 10 jars of stage 2 baby food, nursed, and had table food with us LOL I just dont get it.

On a side note she is rolling over but she still isnt sitting yet..arnt most 11 month old sitting by now?

My dd had weight gaining issues too , not as severe as ur lo , but at a year old she was about 14-15 lbs , the size of my 4 month old now :/ ... She was never admitted , but I was a struggle . She is 4 now and we still have issues , but not as bad as it was before... Good luck , I hope all goes well :)
