How are your O babies growing & gaining as they age?

I have an 18 month old O baby. Her weight gain and growth has always been poor at best. She does not each much during meals and I wonder what other moms experience as their O babies grow and what your "normal" is. We supplement her food with high calorie formula and add butter and oil to all her food. I realize she will never gain as a normal child will and will always be low on the growth curve, but I'd like to know what other moms experience with regard to the child's growth and weight gain so I can know for my peace if mind what is "normal" for an O kid.

Hi Sarah, from my 9 yr. old daughter's experience she will always be below the growth chart but as long as she's growing and following the growth chart she'll be ok. She may be under it but she's growing slowly :-)
