Our little Amanda is petite, part genetics and part heart condition. The way Amanda's heart condition is treated in our cardiology department requires her to be 30 lbs for her 3rd surgery. She is currently 13 months old and 16 lbs (recovering from stomach bug where she lost nearly a pound).
We have been giving her 24-calorie formula for the past year and are getting ready to transition away from a formula heavy diet. She likes to feed herself.
Anyone else having weight gaining issues with their heart children? Any recipe ideas for high-calorie, healthy foods you are interested in sharing?
