    Yes! DD1 was such a good girl at the hospital yesterday until the LC touched her head and she lost it. They were really impressed that she can walk in thongs though lol.

    DD1 had silent reflux and feeding adversions. DD2 has regular reflux. I feel like there are other things going on though.

    Default Failure to thrive troopers!

    I think you would all know my case by now as I've posted so many times.
    My girl is struggling to gain weight, height is a struggle also, she's on the 3ed percentile, but reaching all her milestones and is quiet clever for her age. I give her fatty foods (not junk) but still struggles.

    ETA: when I say fatty foods, I mean, full cream milk, cheese, pasta, salmon, avocado, meat, etc.

    Try bananas, banana milkshakes. A yummy flavour I love but DD won't have doesn't like smoothies or milkshakes go figure! Banana, peach, strawberries and milk. Blend. Yummo. Fresh fruit none frozen or from tin otherwise it's yuk. To add more calories add ice cream.

    I had a nephew with ftt.

    Biscuits, cocopops, and smoothies were his fave when he was old enough, so we gave lots of those. And thickly spread peanut butter after 1yrs old.

    I sympathise with you ladies many a doctor thought we being sister and I weren't feeding him! Stressful times huh!

    Hugs

    There was concern about FTT with DS early on as he dropped percentiles and hardly ate a thing.

    He's still tiny. He turned 2, two months ago and the other day was wearing size 0 shorts and they fell off him!

    DD just got her school uniforms and she is swimming in the size 4s.

    Both are terrible eaters but DH despite being 6' is slim and I am 5'2" and not exactly large. So they're just fussy and small

    Yea DD1 has smoothies. I put banana, mixed berries, milk, nut butter and cacao powder. Sometimes I add oats too.

    I sometimes put sustagen in a cup for her in the evenings too.

    She is also reaching milestones but at a delayed rate.

    3 of my 6 have been ftt during their early years(newborn to 4). One grew up to be the tallest girl and a healthy weight. The 2 boys grew up to stay on the little side. Their dad is on the smaller side of normal.
    Funny enough the ds1 is over 60 foot and over 90 kgs.

    Milk is the best way to fatten up a baby right? Early solids won't help?

    My son is 21 and 48kgs. He is underweight on the charts and has been since birth. It's hard seeing him so skinny and he eats hardly anything. Super fussy baby , toddler , child , teen and now adult !

    He's 5ft 5 and healthy. He's just super skinny and ppl say he should be a jockey.

    He's had all the tests over 21 years and there's nothing medical. He's just skinny

    I always wonder if being a fussy eater leads to stunted growth or if they are just meant to be small/short/skinny etc.

    My eldest DD was failure to thrive and is tiny still. She's not fussy and eats pretty much anything I give her but she seems to just eat enough for her size. She's a good weight for her height but just tiny all over.
    At the moment she's on the 1st percentile and always has been really. Like our paed said, someone has to be 1st percentile...
    she's just so tiny compared to her friends and struggles initially at school using the playground as she couldn't reach everything...
