Avatar m tn And, if they are using more modern charts, you need to remember that most babies do switch to formula well before 12 months old and that also skews the charts in favor of more weight gain. In fact, according to WHO's height/weight chart (which is said to be based on breastfed babies only), your daughter ranks around the 30th percentile in weight. Not bad at all!!! Try not to worry, if she is reaching her milestones, she is most likely fine.
Avatar f tn He has always incresed on his weight (he has an upward curve on the centile chart, but it curves below the 0% mark). The concern of the GI specialist is that the distance from his weight to his height is growing more. What is your take on the GI's recommendation? What are the consequences of this slow rate on my son's brain development? Thank you for your thoughts.

118074 tn?1228332603 Just keep introducing different food to your baby and let him eat the same kind for awhile before giving him a different one. He'll eventually start liking normal food and gaining weight. For the time being, for him to gain weight, lots of bubbas/breastmilk (whichever you're doing).
Avatar f tn Today at the doctor we looked at his growth chart and he started out great, born at 8lbs 14oz, but since he turned 2, has not put on anything. He refuses to eat most of the time, today for example, he has 1/8th of a bagel, 2 small chocolates, a few bites of soy icecream and 2 cheeze-its. This diet sounds bad, but it is out of desperation that I gave him these foods. He will sometimes eat bananas, apples, chicken, lima beans etc. But more often than not, he hardly eats anything.
Avatar n tn 5 inches tall at 27 months old and he is off the chart in his weight compared to other 24 month olds, meaning 100% of all 24 month olds weight more than he does. He has seemed to have more bouts of sicknesses with vomiting than seems normal in his 27 months of life. He recently got sick and my daughter told me there was some "rodo or robo" (?) virus going round and that is why he was vomiting for a week straight on and off.

Avatar m tn Hello there, I have a couple questions concerning my daughter is 2 years old. At a checkup during my pregnancy her fetal heart rate was found to be tachycardic. She seemed to not "settle" into a normal resting HR. at points her heart was beating so fast the NST would chart the beats at 20 even though you could audibly hear that her heart was beating very fast. After birth I noticed that when she cried her lips would turn blue and her legs were very mottled and purple-y in colour.
Avatar f tn I would try not to worry if she is growing fine at her last doctor visit and then ask at the next visit. It isn't important how big they are but how they grow on their own chart. I would try not to resort to cookies and junk food to entice her though. If she is truly hungry, she will eat. It's human nature. If she doesn't then she will stop growing and this your doctor would notice and investigate further. I would make sure that you aren't giving too much milk.

377493 tn?1356505749 For those of you that don't know, he was born a low birth weight baby, then lost a great deal of weight with rotovirus. Since then it's been a struggle to get the weight back on. He is healthy, but gets the usual numerous virus' that they get when they are exposed to other children (he is in daycare 3 days a week and unfortunately me staying home full time is just not a financial option). Like most children his age he stops eating or at least eats minimal amounts when sick.
Avatar m tn Also, you might want to document if she has play dates, goes to child care, or other places. Then try and chart everything and see if there are any coincidences. You may have thought of all of this, but I wanted to maybe tweek your brain. Maybe you'd have a light bulb moment. Try to hang in there. Keep fighting for your baby. Keep going to docs and get them to figure it out. I know it's frustrating but sometime you have to be the squeeky wheel.
Avatar n tn I have been taking my son to a pediatric gastroenterologist for 9 months or more now because he was refusing to eat and had periods of recurring vomiting (not cyclic vomiting) and very low weight. He was diagnosed with Noonan Syndrome (via genetic testing) and the Gastro put him on 30mg Prevacid for GERD. Nevertheless, the vomiting and not-eating continues. He will go for months with no vomiting, and after a while he starts to eat a little more normally.
Avatar n tn hello my toddler is 20 months old and she is 31 inches tall and just 22 lbs..what can i give her to gain more weight..i am giving her pediasure what other foods can i give her.
377493 tn?1356505749 He was born in the 3rd percentile for both height and weight. He had jaundice and issues with his blood sugar and spent 5 days in NICU. Since then he has been healthy with the exception of the normal virus' and bugs that children get. He did have a rather nasty bout of rotavirus and lost an awful lot of weight through that, but did not have to be hospitalized. My concern is this. He is now about to be 2. He has not yet caught up to normal.
280369 tn?1316705641 infant chart .com There's a chart for height, weight, head circumference, and weight for length...Elijah is 56% for weight, 92.4% for height, and 36.7% for weight to length. So he's just above average for weight, definitely above average for height, and below average for his weight to other babies of his height. I look at those numbers and don't worry at all, he eats healthy, doesn't snack on anything bad, drinks water, milk and once in a while juice...he's just fine.
Avatar f tn How concern should I be about my 2 year 2 month year old son who is less then 3rd % in weight and head circumference, is 21st percentile in height? Yes he is on the "toddler high fat diet" i.e. butter, pediasure, olive oil, le creme yogurt, whole milk and others.
Avatar m tn Hi, my daughter is almost 3 1/2 years. My daughter is small. We went to wic the other day and they are concerned cause she hasn't really gained any weight. Now I am 4'11" and weigh 103 lbs. She is tiny just like me. They freaked me out and made me feel like I am a terrible mother. She is a very picky eater and she has many food allergies so I am limited two ways on stuff to feed her. She doesn't eat much snacks. She loves fruit and veggies.
2020005 tn?1476662562 I had her 6 month check up today and the doctor said she doesn't look malnourished, she looks healthy, but she's in the 25th percentile and her weight has kind of plateaued. I have to take her back in 6 weeks for a re-weigh. I'm so stressed and I feel so much pressure for her to gain weight. What can I do? I'm feeding her on demand, as always, starting solids, I'm wondering if her recently learning to crawl is burning some calories?
Avatar f tn Brandy, according to this chart, he is well below even the 1% mark, indicating he is "off the chart" low. http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/growthcharts/boysbirth.html Has he always been low weight? How is his height compared to the chart? That was something our pediatrician always looked for - a consistent pattern.

Avatar n tn It not only provides vitamins and minerals, but also protein and fat. I would tend to question the weight gain, or lack there of. Remember though, at this age there growth slows down tremendously. As long as he is not deviating from his normal growth curve, I wouldn't worry! If your doctor is concerned, however, then he may be going down the growth chart, so I would definately follow through with these test your doctor has ordered.

Avatar n tn and further more the very next morning i swear....i have gained more weight! i am literally gaining weight EVERY DAY.
Avatar f tn her corrected age she in the 3% and her corrected age, she doesn't even chart. docs are not concerned about her weight of developement, but her lenght. i had a son born at 10 weeks premature, and he is tall (3ft. 5in at just under 3 years). he developed correctly and had a continued growth chart. however, our daughter isn't growing.
Avatar f tn I noticed for the past year or more that his growth has not been the same as when he was an infant/toddler. A friend had told me that she saw online somewhere that Zyrtec can suppress growth in children. Maybe when used for a long time? Does anyone know about this? Is this true? Or is this a possibility that Zyrtec taken for allergy could suppress growth in children?
