    Default Anyone concerned with their 1yr old (weight & growth)

    Hi all, I'm just wondering if anyone is concerned about the growth of their bub.
    My girl has always struggled to gain weight, but she's gaining very slowly. Growth charts suggest you will be short like mummy.
    She's a very happy baby, full of beans.
    Thank you

    My daughter has a syndrome that causes slow growth. Dr's fully expected her to be tube fed but she isn't.
    At 1 year old she didn't make the growth charts. Was short but healthy.
    At 2 and half (now) she's hit this 35th percentile on the charts! Don't know how. She barely eats. Lol.
    But Dr's were always simply happy if she's grew...even slowly. So if you're little one is growing and putting on weight and the Dr's aren't worried then you need to trust that. If she's growing , even slowly I wouldn't be too concerned.
    For my daughter I do give her a high calorie nutrition drink as a supplement. But i also try feeding her high calorie foods. Lots of butter, pastas... dairy. One thing she loves is macaroni cheese.
