    No but it is the low lactose option. We had to go off it for the dairy free diet

    Pediasure can't be used if the child has a cmpi.
    It can be used if there's lactose intolerance though. It doesn't have enough lactose to cause any issues.

    This is our problem. DS is below the bottom line / percentile but is still tracking up steadily under that line. He's CMPI so we have the double whammy, we can't bulk him up by giving him cheese and creamy sauces and butter laden foods.

    Thanks for clarifying @Tamtam. Good luck OP.

    There are other options - if you want supplemental drinks. Can the hospital dietician shed any light?

    Some companies that make specialised nutritional supplements are
    Abbott
    Nutricia
    Nestle health Science @A-Squared
    I'm not sure if that will help if you research it?
    I know a family that give extra calories with a juice type supplement. I can't think what it's called.

    Is there any other supplements that you can buy with our prescription?

    My boy is about in 3rd percentile at 19 mo and I've tried pedicure but gagged and vomited it straight back up. ( this happened a few times - but mixed with water)
    We have seen a dietician but got no advice on supplements - to be honest I'm struggling to get any direction and it's been months.. 😢

    I think you can buy sustagen kids. But you really need to get dietician to help you. That said if your little one has always been on 3rd centile then it's not a worry?? perhaps he's just growing on his own curve in 3rd percentile.

    Before my paeds suggested Pediasure, he said to increase his calories intake by adding oil and butter to everything he eats.
    Best see a paeditrician for an assessment

    Hasn't always been on 3rd % dropped off from 50th at 4 mo and slowly declined till now ( being 19mo)
    Dropped on head circ, weight and height.
    Testing for genetic conditions and testing again for other issues.

    Oh. No wonder you are worried. Are there any other areas that were cause for concern?
    As you can from my posts my DD does have a genetic condition which causes poor feeding and growth. Pediasure is our life saver.
