My 17 month old daughter has always been petite, but I am trying to help her gain weight. She weighed 18 pounds at her last checkup (16 mos) and we have another checkup in Aug. The docs say she is very healthy, just petite. She has started to be a really picky eater, only drinking her milk, chocolate whole milk, yougurt smoothies, fruits and veggies. She doesn't eat a lot of the solids, and while fruits and veggies are great, they won't make her gain weight. At this point her 3 month old baby sister is only 8 pounds behind her!! Thinking of trying kids Ensure or Boost to help put weight on...any suggestions?
