DS2 is 11mths old on Sunday. He doesnt eat very well. He refuses to eat anything (except jarred custard) off a spoon/fork/finger. He also doesnt sleep more than 2hr blocks.
I believe the non-eating has something to do with it. He does eat finger foods but only gets 1-2tablespoons of food down at each sitting (eats 3-4times a day). He is still fully breastfed.
When he was born his weight was above the 97th %ile. Then he dropped to the 75th %ile. Now he is below the 50th %ile. His weight is steadily dropping. Between 6mths and 9mths he only put on 500g. He is now 9.2kg which is only a rise of 70g in two weeks.
The nurse i saw suggested i feed him cows milk at lunch ect. But this doesnt sit well with me. I dont feel he needs cows milk, but with his little weight gain i dont know any more. Any ideas? Any one been through this with an older baby.
He still breastfeeds every 5hrs. He also wakes 5-6times a night and at least once over night refuses to go back to sleep without a feed.
