    Can you call the paed and advise them of her current loss and your concerns as they may want to bring your appointment forward?

    I would look for a new doctor (paed) request bloods.

    Some bulk bill. (Even if not on concession).

    Demand genetic testing the lot... Your her mum. Ask.

    Toddles do seem to slow in weight gain and they are more active so it's a possibility that is why.

    I would aim (I know it's hard) for the following
    Getting veggies into her, maybe through meatballs, pasta, sausage rolls, veggie slice.
    Avocados
    Smoothies (you can hide a lot in that)

    Is there certain textures she likes?

    I do hope your Bub snaps out of it quick smart.
    If my fussy eater actually ate meatballs, pasta sauce, sausage rolls, veggie slice, avocado and smoothies, then I don't think I would consider them fussy! lol

    OP, with DS I just went for calorie-dense and considered it a short-term solution. I did not let mysef STRESS about micro-nutrients, I just needed him to start eating enough to sleep well and gain weight. As I said in my original post, and any feeding one I reply to, this worked for us. The result is a happy growing bub who, due to being so content (and eating!!!) has slowly gotten more adventurous.

    He likes butter thankfully, so butter on plain crackers - or just butter! I kid you not I will give him a knob of butter straight from the block to chomp away on. He loves my home made butter shortbreads (so long as I use a cutter so they are all the same) too. Potato chips and crisps are another like, I silently freak out at the salt but figure it was (and has been) just short term. [I feel like a freak saying this but...] unfortunately he doesn't like much 'junk' food, eg. nuggets, pizza, pies etc. He just has very 'plain' taste. He loved milk, and I would add a scoop of formula, but him having it or not did not impact on what he ate. If I tried to cut it out though it would have a huge impact on his (already bad) sleep.

    I just literally have offered him everything, regardless of if it is 'healthy' or not. If it's got calories in it, and he doesn't spit it out in disgust - then it's added to the menu!

    Big hugs, it's so horrible to get bad news at a weigh in. Stay strong, try not to overthink it, just do what you need to do now to keep your bubba happy!

    Honey,is it not possible that she's not just on the small side?

    I know a few kids that dropped from 90th to 10th and below.

    Never the less, I feel your pain and I would still question why she has lost weight, but do keep the genetics in mind.

    Fwiw, my oldest da is 10% for both weight and height, I've never seen him have a growth spurt, seriously.

    Hugs hugs

    I tend to agree with this. My kids have always been low weight kids. Ds is almost 2 and only hovering around the 10kg mark and dd was the same.
    No one was concerned as they did eat and where otherwise healthy and happy kids. But around 18mths dinner time was a drama (and still is)
    Perhaps it is another point you can think about.

    I agree with @monnie, get a genetic test. The wait is annoying.
    We were surprised at the results.

    What sort of things does genetic testing look for?
