She had her palate repaired when she was 11 months old and has been doing amazing since then. At her 12 month & 15 month appts her weight had increased greatly and they were very happy that she had moved up so far as far as percentiles were concerned. Well I took her yesterday to her 18 month appt and she has only gained 4oz since April. Now She has to drink 16 oz of whole milk plus 1 pediasure a day to help her try to gain weight and we go back in a month. I'm kinda at a loss because all she does is eat and eat good healthy food all the time. Anyone else have this problem?
