Does anyone have trouble with their little one gaining weight?

My son weighed 5lbs at birth and now only weighs 14lbs and the doctors are wanting to run all kinds of tests and can't find anything wrong! imagine but now they are wanting to put him on a feeding tube and I don't think that is needed,but they won't listen to me. My son is very active he is non-stop from the time he wakes untill about 2pm when he crashes for he nap,then an hour or two later he is back at it till he falls asleep again at 10pm so am I really doing anything wrong asto why he isn't gaining weght? Please help!!

I don't have a problem with either of my sons' weights, but I wanted to respond just to let you know I am thinking of you.

Sounds like your son is just naturally active and burns the energy off.  Obviously I'm not medically trained though - the docs are only trying to do what they think is right by doing the tests.  That being said, a feeding tube sounds extreme if he is actually eating !?!

Are they worried about his hydration levels or anything like that?

I hope they find a solution soon, for your sons sake as well as yours.
