So Will has barely grown in six months. He is "off the chart" as our pediatrician puts it for weight. First, I think they need to get a better chart. I mean, he might be a statistical anomally, but he isn't on life support or anything. He seems able to run and play, and is in all other respects a normally little kid. So, either something is wrong with those charts, or we are missing something.
That said, he is not growing very well, and the reason seems to be that he doesn't eat much. You parents out there know, there is not much you can do to force an 18 month old to eat. They will or they won't. We have trouble getting him to eat desserts and french fries, much less healthy cuisine. And of course, the problem has only gotten worse, since the Pediatrician made note of it.
We are researching ways to add calories to his diet without ruining his health.. there are only so many ways to do this. It is frustrating and adds a level of anxiety to dinner which is not pleasant. I nearly had to leave to the table tonight worrying so much about his refusal to eat pasta (after eating it many times in the past). Sigh...
