Our daughter was 5lbs. 7oz. when she was born. She wasn't premature she was just small. She is perfectly healthy and it seems to me that she eats nonstop. She eats three meals of solids a day and four 6oz bottles a day yet WIC says she is still not gaining enough. They are worried about her because she stays in the 5 percentile range for her weight. I don't understand why her weight to height ratio should matter when she is perfectly healthy. I am running out of ideas on what to do to bring up her weight. I've tried everything. I've even put rice cereal in her bottle on occasion just to bring up the fat content. Anyone have any ideas?
