Hi, my 2.5 yr odl daughter, has BEEN skinny, sh'es 24lbs, but overall healthy, have had blood work done and thyroid checked when she was alittle younger. We get alot of "wow, she's soo little, what do you feed her" So, naturally, we do checkups JUST to check her weight and to have her pediatricians keep up with it....to reassure us, nothing is wrong. Until today, ALL 3 of her dr's have said, "she's just going to be little", then today, one of dr's tells me, it's always been considered failure to thrive, maybe it's just me, but it seems liek a HUGE difference in the 2?!?! But, Caitilin is not much for anything dairy, neither am I, but we have tried, carnation breakfast mixes, sippah straws (to help with milk intake, making a game of it), we tried follow up formula, we have tried pediasure, when she was 1 and dr's took her off of it, cuz she refused to drink it, NOW, they are putting her back on it....and i am terrified she won't drink it...and am desperate for ways to hide calories in her foods!! She does get vit supplement vitamin. She's super super active, to the point of never sitting still, so i need all help i can get!!!! If ANYONE is going through similar with their toddlers, please, please, feel free to add me or chat with me about it. Thanks!!
