Hmmm...I would see if they would send him to a speech/feeding specialist. Danny had to go see one at one point to make sure that he hadn't developed any "mechanical" issues in regards to eating when he stopped eating *literally* overnight. Has he always eaten that amount or has he slowed his intake recently? What calorie level is his formula? 30 cal/oz is typical with children having difficulty gaining weight. He ideally should be eating 30 ounces of formula in a 24 hour period (if he doesn't eat any solids). How old is the baby and what has his weight pattern been up to this point? If he has always had ups, downs, and flats, I think it would be time for a GI evaluation with a stool culture to check for fecal fat, elastase, and to check for any irritation. That is the most non-invasive first step. :/

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you on this one. Danny is still a royal mess and a medical mystery. We have upcoming surgery and ongoing illnesses so I am in and out.
