My 18 mo has failure to thrive
Weighing 8.9kg and 72cm in height.
I'll keep it brief and I guess I'm wanting others experiences &/or advice on what more I can do! Or other suggestions!!
My boy born 39+3 and 3.3kg and has always grown but ever so slowly. He had posterior tongue tie and upper lip tie lasered at 3 mo. Was breastfed till 12 mo but that was a shocking journey - could not hold on, poor suck, high palette & to top it off refused bottles.
Has eaten solids fine - but now doing normal fussy toddler thing but increasingly gagging on things, cream, gravy and touching play doh with hands ( he does have sensory things going on) he loves custard out of those pouches. As well as some savory ones. Gagged and vomited on pedisure ( supplement) and I struggle to get him to drink - water, milk ect.
Seen my McHN regular and gp, seen a paed at 12mo with testing but 'didn't know why he was small' no genetic testing done yet.
Developmentally delayed somewhat - just started to walk, has minimal words he says regularly.
Waiting on appointment at children's hospital, seeing a dietician, have app with paed on Monday.
Wanting to see OT & speech path ( haven't seen one as yet)

Following to respond later....
There's a few threads.... One we are discussing now is "at my wits end" I think.

What can he eat?
What foods does he like?
I don't know no how I can "tag" to that thread.

I'll try find the other thread and join, save doubling up!!! ☺️
He eats mainly everything - loves are yoghurt/ custard/ banana. But in saying that he is still 18 mo and can be typically fussy and change his mind daily to what he likes or wants to eat!
