    They did a lot of tests on him and believe he has an intolerance to cows milk as he had a very distended belly and wasn't putting on weight. They started him on Petri junior as it for bubs that have malabsorption problems and it has seemed to have done the trick. His blood test results were all the place too with many vitamins and minerals non existent.

    So my little man started his life at 1.1kg (32weeker) and is now 6 months (4 months corrected age) and weighs 5.35kg.

    I think revisiting a paediatrician might be a good idea Mamasupial. You are doing a great job for Possum.
    Your bub sounds quite similar to mine....

    My bub was IUGR too, 34 weeks 1.4kg

    Now at 8 months he has only just cracked 6.5kgs....he is 1.4 percentile on the growth chart that we use too...

    OP I know It is stressful being concerned about their weight...

    Can you seek a second opinion with a different paediatrician (who are you currently seeing? I can PM the details for mine if you like we are really happy with him).

    It may just be a transition while your little one gets used to the different carers at the daycare...

    Have you spoken to the director and staff regarding the need for her weight to be closely monitored...

    How is she after a feed? Is she a happy settled baby?

    She has silent reflux.

    Her childcare centre know about her weight struggles and I'm always working with them to try and get more milk into her. She's only been there for 2 weeks so I guess it might just take longer.

    During feeds she sometimes fusses but after a feed she is content. Not sure about how she is at childcare for.

    It sounds like you are doing a great job, yes still early days of her settling into daycare. Just keep doing what your doing with keeping a close eye on it and go back to the GP if there is any further loss...

    Silent reflux isn't much fun for either of you either!

    This is my DS chart to compare...

    He was born at 34 weeks and 1.4kg so has had a lot of catching up to do...now he is crawling my paediatrician said it will be harder for him to gain weight as he is so active..

    At 4 months I can't imagine your little one is crawling as yet? So it looks like she slowed down and lost weight, was that when you switched to formula?

    She isn't crawling and she was mix fed from birth.

    Maybe she will take more milk at childcare after she is better settled in. Does she feed more when she is at home?
    She doesn't take larger amounts at home than she usually does but she does have an extra night feed now.
