Hello all, I think my girl might be having this issue, she is growing slowly, reaching her milestones, but not eating much at all (yogurt & milk) and is just losing weight.
Her character has not changed, still a happy and active baby.

Failure to thrive?

A paed diagnosed my daughter with failure to thrive. Not much we can do about it... We just monitor.

How are her percentiles? We dropped from 91st to the 6th for weight but have gotten her weight up to the 19th now. For height she has dropped from the 84th to the 6th.

Two of my babies had failure to thrive. Its usually a part of broader issues (eg, reflux, food allergies, etc). I remember you saw a paed in the past & they weren't concerned about your DDs weight - perhaps if you are feeling concerned, you should speak to someone again. From what you've described previously, maybe she is going to be petite/ a small person? I am 175 cm & 68 kg, & I have a friend who is 160cm & about 50kg (if that). We are both healthy, just have different body types. I am taller, she is petite. Perhaps your DD will be the petite one? I know this has been an ongoing concern for you though,so a paed might help alleviate your worries or investigate further if need be.

Our underlying issue was reflux. Her weight or height didn't shoot up after we treated it. Pretty sure she's just going to be small.

She doesn't eat, that's the issue and the paed has ordered some tests which didn't come back 100%. Me and hubby have been tested now and are waiting results....
I thought we needed food to grow? Right?
I'll be looking at another pead in the meantime to see what he says also.
