    Whoops, hit send early. Is she very vomit-y? Has she been sick lately? Is she generally happy & does she meet her milestones/ do what a normal 9mth old should do? This will help determine if she is just healthy & small, or if somethi g is wrong. Losing 100g could be the differencr of before &after a feed, or a bowel movement. Also, her birth weight comes into account - they say they should triple the borthweight by 1 year, if that helps

    Her birth weight was 2.5kg and lost a little of 10%, she is a very happy baby, she waves, claps her hands, kicks legs, commando crawls, makes noises, has 2 bottom teeth, is noisy (happily) loves her games.

    Her nappies are not frothy, their mustardy the last couple times. I get 1-2 dirty nappies and a few wet nappies.

    She is generally a very happy baby.

    As for the special formula, I've been told there's one that has high calories to help with weight.

    She's on nestle nan pro gold atm.

    She has green veggie puree only, will not have anything else, the last few days I've been mashing a potato with cheese and butter.

    And has a slice of cheese.

    She also has natural yogurt, water and milk and will have puréed fruit and I give her a little bit of banana in her hand.

    Usually with lumpy food she gags.

    So she's eating ok, but not gaining if that makes sense.

    I think the formula you are referring to is Pepti Junior? or something like that..

    Pepti jnr is just a hydrolysed formula for babies with allergies, it doesnt have any higher calorie content. Are yiu thinking of polyjoule? Thats a powder you add to their regular milk to add extra calories. It doesnt need a script, you can just buy it at the chemist, but it is something to talk to The paed about. From what youve said, your lo sounda healthy, just small - but i am no paed! It sounds like she could benefit from more fat and protein in her solids - will she eat finger foods? Fingers of avocado are good. If she only likes to eat her veggie puree, you could start adding a tiny bit of chicken or meat into it & slowly increasing the amount. Coconut cream is good for healthy fats too, and full fat dairy. Some things to talk to the paed about, anyway. Good luck tomorrow

    Polyjule? I'll mention it. Hopefully we get to the bottom of it. Fingers crossed.

    I definitely think it is worth getting it checked it. Chances are she is just petite. However there are some underlying conditions that can cause poor weight gains, so I think a paed appointment is a good move.
    Can you please tell me the underlying conditions. I'm short. Like 5 ft. LoL

    Omg I'm sorry, I didn't see this, yes, I've seen the paed, he reassured me everything is fine with my girl and that she will be a small baby like me. (Short) but she's doing well and since then she's been having more finger food and no gagging. ( she's had pasta and meat as a new thing) I think that's a great thing in my eyes.
