    Default How heavy is/was your toddler at 19 months?

    DS is 19 months and he weighs only 10kg!
    He still wears 9-12 months pants!
    I am really worried. I can't really force him to eat more @@
    How heavy is or was your toddler at 19 months?
    How do you tackle eating problems?
    What do you feed your toddler and how much do they eat?

    I have asked this before but I am all worried again after visiting the nurse for his shot today

    Default How heavy is/was your toddler at 19 months?

    DS (about to be 23months) is now 14.5kg and at 19 months was 13kg but he is tall (88cm) I did notice though from 16-20 months he didn't put on any weight and I put that down to him starting to run around!
    Toddlers generally don't eat loads but as long as he is eating healthy food he should e fine - just keep offering as they go through stages , my DS always eats but some days he eats less, some more !
    Did they seem to be worried today with his weight/progress?
    Try keep up the good fats ( avocado, oils , nuts) and protein ( eggs , meat, fish) or try an afternoon smoothie a day ( DS has A2 or almond milk, banana, berries, yogurt and I put his pro biotic and fish oil in) good snacks are rice cakes with avocado or nut butter, dips with wholemeal rice crackers or veggie sticks, yogurt, eggs, fruit

    Well at first the nurse said oh he might have gone through a growth spurt in height since he hasn't gained any weight and is almost underweight. Then she seemed worried when he hasn't grown mug in height either. But the doctor wasn't concerned at all, said he looks happy and healthy and it's a normal stage for them to go through especially he's so active.
    I do try to keep up with the healthy foods but he's very picky and most of the time hes not interested

    Ds was 14 kilos at that age.

    When he was almost 2 though he was only 14.2 kilos ... he only gained 200 grams in 12 months :/
    Now at 27 months he is about 15 kilos

    Ds is super fussy, he lived on vegemite sandwiches for a while there :/

    Default How heavy is/was your toddler at 19 months?

    Tubster, sorry to hear you are having problems with his eating it is one of the most worrisome things as a parent. I have a DD who has always been a lot smaller than other children. Eating has been an issue since she was a baby, in fact we couldn't get her to eat any solids between 6mths-12mths, u just can't force them! We went through so many specialists and at the end realized it was just her and she just wasn't interested in eating. While she is still bad at eating, I have stopped worrying about it as it can just consume you!

    What percentile is your DS in? My daughter dropped right down to the 3rd percentile but is back up to 25-30 percentile now, she is 2.5yrs...

    The key is to try and offer foods that have lots of calories! Put lots of butter on things etc.. But also make sure that it is always a positive experience for him, it is so easy to get frustrated and angry when they won't eat.

    If the doc is not worried then maybe wait another month and get him weighed again... But if you are very concerned, then get another opinion!

    All the best!!!

    I'm not sure how it works with toddlers, I'd be inclined to see a Dr or a paed and find out weight aside how healthy is my toddler, and then if he's healthy just continue to offer lots of healthy foods, I'd still be giving milk (jasper was still breast fed and I think that definitely bolstered his calories through the fussy 18-36 months "phase" because he barely ate at all.)


    Also - how tall is he? Are you and your husband smaller people? Shorter or lighter/slimmer?

    I think genes do play a massive role because jasper was as fussy as they come at that age and weighed 16kgs at that age. Katelyn is 6 months and 10kgs now and been more or less exclusively breast fed until the last few week ago she's been having a couple of tablespoons of solids a day. But she's got the genes to be a bigger bubba.

    Tubster, I agree with Boobycino, make sure he is healthy! Our doc always got blood tests to make sure my DD was getting all the nutrients she needed.

    I just checked the percentiles and it looks that 10kg puts him in the 3-10 percentile, so it is quite low. Docs always told me though the thing to look out for are sudden drops in percentiles and also if the weight percentile and height percentile have a large difference (eg 50th for height but only 3rd for weight).

    Based on the fact that he is quite low I would see another doc or paed. In my opinion I always rather be safe than sorry.

    Has he always been on the lower end or has this suddenly happened? Has he had any history of reflux?

    Try not to stress too much!

    My DD was just under 11kgs at that age. She has always been on the lower end of the charts, very petite! She is 27 months now and would still be under 12kgs, but she is happy, healthy and has more energy then any toddler I've ever seen!! I try to offer her lots of protein & good fats but she just loves fruit & vegies too much.

    DD is 19m and is 10.5kg, she does not look underweight and looks in proportion its just she has never been a chubby baby. Unfortunately for us it's her older brother that is our concern as he is about to turn 4 and is only a couple of kg heavier then DD.

    DD is almost 19 months and weighed 10.5 kilos at her 18 month checkup. She has always been small but her weight gain curve had dropped off a bit, probably because she'd had a few illnesses over winter and had started walking. If there's no dramatic slowing in weight gain he's probably fine, just on the lighter side
