DS is 12 months old and weighs 7.6kgs. He was born weighing 2.3kgs, I had HELLP syndrome & pre-eclampsia so he didn't do much growing in the last couple of weeks before he was born. He was quite skinny but all his vitals were fine and he consistently put on weight and has been a very happy, healthy little boy and has met all his milestones.
I took him for his 12 month vax and the doctor did his checks and he hasn't gained a single kg since he was 9 months, he's just stayed the same.
He is BF'd and eats a fair bit of solids but is by no means a big eater. He's not the best sleeper and still wakes for feeds during the night (trying to wean this, but that's a whole new topic)
The doctor suggested he may be iron deficient and gave me some formula to give him for the iron content and also the extra calories.
The CHN has suggested it may just be him, that he is going to be tall and skinny.
I guess I'm just not sure what else I should be doing? I've been trying to feed him iron rich & healthy high calorie foods but I'm just wondering if anyone else has been in the same situation and what did you do? Thanks.
