Does anyone here have a small little one? Are they meeting their milestones, what are they eating? My little guy is very small. He has had tons of tests to see why he is small and everything comes back normal. The Dr's are after me to fatten him up but really there isn't much I can do. I switched him to formula and it brought out reflux so I switched him back to nursing and the reflux is better. He is sitting, talking (mama, dada, etc) standing (not pulling up). Not interested in crawling though, he hates his stomach so that may be a lost cause. He is not on the charts at all for weight. Height he is in the 8th% and his head is in the 23%. His weight though is in the .03%. Yes, you heard right... the .03%. He weighs 13lbs 4oz and is will be 8months old on the 6th. We feed him all kinds of fat,butter whipping cream, avocado, sweet potatoes, i'm even resorting to giving him food just because it is fat and I don't like to do that. 8 month old shouldn't have ice cream,french fries,etc. But I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any tricks or thoughts? It's starting to wear on me..
