How do I get my two year old son to gain weight?

My son is 2 and he is very low in percentile in weight but he eats like a cow. His doctor has expressed many times that he is not worried about it at all he just will have a smaller frame which is genetic because his father is smaller. So my suggestion is that if you doctor didnt express any concern at his 2 yr old check up don't stress about it! My son is about 27 lbs if that. If your doctor did say something then you should ask THEM what to do about it.

I ended up giving my daughter 10ml of flaxseed oil a day for her omega 3 (I'm sure fish oil would be just as good) she gained weight really quickly (not too much) plus it did wonders for her mental development.

Pediasure works wonders, but they also need real food. I give my babies lentils and oatmeal every two days. This helps a lot!

My name is Chloe am from USA my partner and I have been trying to get a baby for over two years then, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months and my ex lover was confused and angry with me so he thought i was a barren woman so he parked out and left me alone, six months later before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, i contacted him at this email: theangelsofsolution@gmail.com for him to help us, then i told him my problem, he told us that i will either conceive soon, but after two years of trying i was at a point where i was willing to try anything. And I'm glad i came to Dr Ibolo Because his pregnancy spell cast put me at ease, now i missed my month flow and my medical result shows that i was pregnant, as soon as my husband heard the great news he came back fast and started begging in tears and now am living happy with my husband and my pretty daughter, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped me as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: theangelsofsolution@gmail.com if you are searching for any help to problems like these: (1)If you want your ex back. (2)if you always have bad dreams. (3)You want to be promoted in your office. (4)You want women/ men to run after you. (5)If you want a child. (6)You want to be rich. (7)You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever. (8)If you need financial assistance. (9)Herbal care you can still contact him on his email theangelsofsolution@gmail.com

I am having a tough time getting my 18 mos. old to eat.. he's only in the 3% range. His height is in the 60% range. I have tried all foods, fatty yogurts, smoothies, Clif bars etc etc. I just had him tested today by a natropath to determine if he has a food sensitivity that is causing an aversion to eating. If there isn't one, we will probably have to see an occupational therapist to determine if he is having troubles with texture. It's an awful feeling when they won't eat and you can't "make" them.... Good luck!

My 2 year old eats all day and never gets satisfied. He is over 3 ft tall and weighs bout 33 lbs. but my 3 year old was a low birth weight baby because I had preeclampsia. she was also a very picky eater and doc said I could use pediasure for when she didn't want to eat what we had.

I've been doing super smoothies with my son... and he has gained weight well. I do a lot of different veggies n fruit n mix it up with coconut milk or flaxmilk. He enjoys them... I also thicken it up with rice cereal for the spoonable option. He is lactose sensitive so I have found different alternatives. He gets tons of vitamins and all different color blend of veggies n fruit. Plus, it soooooo easy to bulk fiber up too in them... he eats them at five times a week or more depending on if he is teething bad and or got the allergies going on.

I have the same problem for my little girl. Almost brings me to tears. She is soooooo tiny. but the doctor said she is in the 50 percentile and don't worry. But a old Romanian trick is to give them vitimins with moore iron in it. I will try the pedisure and the vitimin formulation when I go back to Romania. It has to be mixed and pharmacy in the states don't do mixing anymore.

i have the same problem with my 3 yr old son. he was in a rear facing forrrrever because at the age of 1 he was nowhere near 20lbs. my son loves dairy. he drinks plenty of milk... whole milk. some doctors recommend switching from whole milk but the main reason is because it is more fattening. there is no nutritional reason for not drinking whole milk except for the fact that its more fattening! he eats lots of yogurt and will do anything for a frozen gogurt! pediasure can help some, and most kids will eat the most at breakfast and the meals get smaller as the day goes on. at least thats typical. i dont know if this was very helpful, ill be looking at other posts because i need help with it too! :)
