18 Month Stats

Ethan is 18 months and here are his statistics from his last appointment

Weight: 19lbs 11oz 0.53%tile
Height: 31" 15.77%tile
Head Circumference: 18 1/4" 14.36%tile

He actually lost 1 ounce from his last appointment, grew 1 1/2 inches in length, and his head measured the same. The doctor said keep trying to get him to eat. No snacks in between meals and if he doesn't eat at one meal then hopefully he'll be hungrier at the next meal. He also is back on Pediasure. The doctor said the only way she knows to make a child eat is feeding through IV, but she said there's more options before going to that extreme. Maybe some metabolic testing in the future. Ethan will have a weight check in a month to see if he's gaining weight then we'll go from there.

Good luck. I'm hoping that Tanner is gaining a little at his next appointment. We will see though. It is so frustating. Hang in there.

My youngest Kaden is only 27 pounds and he's 3 and 1/2 His Doc never worries though because his curves on the chart always go up so even though he's tiny compared to the other children his age he IS growing.
