    Wrong question .

    After making heroic efforts to get to 9kg he has now plataued and there has been no weight gain for 3m, and he is taking less formula .

    But he isn't loosing so I am gratefull for small mercys .

    Hows you DD's weight doing? She had pretty good catch up growth hey.

    I know it is scary but hopefully they will come up with ways to help his weight, maybe add a fortifier to his bottles?

    thanks, whats a fortifier?
    he has recently been changed to neocate prescribed formula due to suspected intolerances/allergies but are still waiting for his blood test results to come back...

    Just ignore the eejits that tell you they must be off bottles at 12m or all their teeth will fall out .

    Total bullcr"p, DS is two, still has 4 bottles a day, has all his teeth with no caires and has them because other wise he would be dropping percentiles even faster than he already is.

    What works for chubby, eat lots of food normal kids does not work for out petite munchkins .

    It's just a powder (like polyjoule, duocal etc) that you can add to formula to increase the calories in there.

    But hopefully your DS will start stacking on the weight now he is on a formula he can acutally tolerate .

    OK so a general question for you lovely ladies , what percentiles are your little ones one.

    Just thought we would do a survey .

    ok i might ask the paed about this stuff
    he has been on formula since he was 10 days old, so he should have stacked on more weight than this??

    DS isnt even on the charts, never has been
    but where the marks have been made in his blue book for weight he would be minus -2 or 3 if that makes sense??

    Julie, DD's only 9.3kg bare weighed,so not far off Edward! She's just started gaining a bit though because she was only 9.2 clothed 2 weeks ago,and she'd been that weight for months!!

    She eats like a pig so its not getting food into her that a problem,its that she never sits still! we cant get weight onto her.

    She has seizures now too so were trying to get that diagnosed at the moment

    oh and Scarletts on the charts (finally) but only Just,and i mean Just lol on the 3rd for weight and shes on the 5th for height.

    Default Fortifier

    Our IUGR baby was born 3 weeks ago at 985g, and is now 1060g. So far she's been having only breastmilk, but if she doesn't start to gain more weight the doctor wants to try some formula milk (S26) once or twice a day, to see if that helps. Our doctor hasn't recommended a fortifier, and I'm wondering if anyone else has any experience with this sort of thing.

    Hope4mum when DS was in SCN they added fortifier to my EBM and never gave him formula, EBM can protect premmies from NEC (a deadly internal infection) so I would be pushing for your bub to only have your EBM with added calories if neccessary.

    How many weeks was she born at?

    But he hs only been on neocate for a little bit right? If he was on a formula that he could not tolerate then that would explain the previous lack of weight gain hey.

    Well she is doing great! I am glad she eats well, wan't to swop DS is the same, mega active but has a tiny appetite also the cheeky money!

    Sorry about the seizures, DS has febrile convulsions, not as bad but I have an idea how scary that must be!

    Yay for her being on the charts .

    DS is 25th for head circ, -5th for height and - 10th for weight maybe? It's hard to calculate when they are below the lines hey .
