Hello,

My son was born @ 5 lbs, 6 oz. He was born @ 37.5 weeks as I had pre-eclampsia. Ever since birth he's remained on the same percentiles, 3-5% for weight and 50-75% for height. He has virtually NO body fat! He has had tests run, and everything is normal, he just is active and burns everything fast! I noticed this summer at the pool, whenever he is cold/wet he shivers so much, and I know it's because, he's got no body fat! My daughter on the other hand is 13 months and weighs what he does now!

My question is, what foods are high in calories? any tips/help is appreciated!

There is a sticky about ways to increase calories in your child's diet. There is a lot of good ideas in there.

Some of the things I do is add Carnation bfast drink powder to her milk, add milk powder to her meals, adding cheese to pretty much every thing, adding butter to foods, giving her whole milk not reduced fat milk, and pancakes with butter, syrup or waffles with peanut butter.

Paige was also born right around 37 weeks (after me being in pre-term labor since 25 week). She was 5lbs 5oz at birth. She's never been on the chart for weight and was around 90% for height but has leveled off a bit...she's still around 50-75% though. Interesting thing is...she was the farthest along and biggest of my 4 babies at birth.

This is probably not the best thing to admit, but for the last week Carly has been eating cheese wiz non stop. We are putting it on everything and she is eating it . Although sometimes she just licks the cheese off. You can try ensure. This did not work for us, she refused to drink it.
