Anyone give sustagen essentials to their toddler/child?

No because of the sugar content.

No sustagen, but I gave polyjoule (a high calorie carbohydrate powder)for a while under the supervision of a dr. She was very underweight & was failure to thrive though, her weight was way way off the chart. Are you still worried about your dd's weighr gain? Perhaps you should go back to the paed & let them know that it is an ongoing source of worry for you? Good luck xx

I haven't considered it. Our GP was a little concerned about my daughters weight, she gains slowly but eats a fantastically balanced diet (I'm one of the lucky ones who doesn't have a fussy child). My Mum actually had my baby book still and looking back I was basically the same as my DD growing up. But definitely speak with your GP if you're concerned. There could be underlying issues as to why she's not gaining weight like food intolerances etc.

She was born 2.5kg and lost over 10% of her birth weight. She's 7.8kg now.
The paed said cause I'm small she will be also.

If your paed isn't concerned I would keep doing what your doing. Especially as she eats well and is gaining albeit slowly.
