Hi. My daughter was similar. She weighed 4lbs 4oz at birth. I can't remember her exact weight at her first birthday, but she was a - 3rd-5th percentile runt. She was diagnosed with FTT at around eleven months and given pediasure, which she would tolerate for awhile and then go through periods where she threw up constantly. ( The pediatrician said this is common for kids on special diets to become intolerant of them). My daughter never took solid foods and still doesn't.
Therefore, she is tube feed. Does your son eat solids? If so have you tried high fat foods like avocados and butter.
