underweight and behavior problems

Hailey - posted on 08/21/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




My son was born jan 13. He has been unable to gain weight properly since birth. His birthweight was 5lbs 6oz. We have seen endocrinologists in Fargo and Bismarck as well as peds and family physicians in three other cities in Minnesota. no one can find a thing wrong with him. he is smart. He kbows his colors and shapes and is working on the alphabet and numbers. He refuses to potty train. He has had anger issues smfor as long as i can remember. When he was able to stabd in his crib at 8 months old he would bang his mouth on the bars until they bled. This eventually turned to head banging onto the floors and walls and he started biting my younger son. When he is with his grandparents..,or frankly when im not around ...all i hear is what an angel he is. I noticed he is covered in bruises for no apparent reason and his nodes in his neck have become swollen. I took him to the doctor and they diagnosed pnamonia and sent us on our way with an antibiotic. This got rid of the pnamonia but the problem remains. His ribs stick out. Under his cheek bones looks sunken slightly. He eats. Not a lot but he loves pizza and cheese...fruits and penut butter...he however refuses to eat meat and eggs. Something is wrong with my child. I cant just sit back and watch him wither away. I need answera...ideas...anything...
