How long has your child been on pediasure or supplements?

Brandon has been taking pediasure now for about five months. He still doesn't eat very well. Many days pediasure is all he has. I am fortunate that he has that. His weight is good though. He just doesn't like to eat and he still has a hard time with a lot of foods and textures. I am hoping that he stays on the pediasure for another year.

My oldest daughter took pedisure for almost two years. She really seemed to like it and it helped her gain weight. At 10 months she was 17lbs and stayed that weight until she was about three and a half. She will be six this summer and is at 37lbs. She is still very small but at least she is eating and growing a little every now and then.

Brandon is actually 22 lbs now so he is not too bad. He was sixteen pounds at nine months. He wasn't gaining weight until he started on the pediasure. He has been through feeding therapy and all sorts of things. He mostly just drinks pediasure but he does eat food a little.

Thanks for posting here. It would be nice to have a few more moms here.

When Sadie was just a baby they told me that she had failure to thrive. I cried and cried for days because I didn't know anything about it other than hearing my aunts talk about a cousin of mine who had it because his birth mother didn't give him any attention. I still have no idea what really was going on with her. At three they said she has a condition called relative anorexia. They said it isn't that my daughter at three would look into the mirror and think that she was fat but that her body was literally starving itself and that there wasn't much we could do about it. They said that it may be because of her epilepsy. I am just glad that she is getting bigger. It is kind of nice to have her so small because my 3 year old and her wear the same size clothes and shoes.

She only eats about half of a good meal in an average day. I thought that her health was getting better but she gets into these "funks" where it is constant seizures. Nobody has given me any clue as to what was going on with her. I posted in the children with special needs about how I thought about her having a problem with fluoride but I haven't seen any replys so I am guessing that nobody has ever dealt with something like this. Also when she has seizures the school wouldn't let her come back until after she saw her specialist and that was 3 weeks away. Now they are saying that they may have to hold her back. It gets very upseting at times. We moved here almost four years ago and I have only had about 3 jobs since I became an adult none of which were here so I wanted to stay home. That made it hard for me to make friends. Still really haven't so I am really glad that I found JM. Especially with being pg with #3. I am going to need alot of advice. He's a boy and I have two girls.

Is she on medication for the epilepsy? My neighbor's dd is and some of them cause her to lose weight, others cause her to gain weight.

I'd be talking to the school and finding out why they want to hold her back. If it is only because of the epilepsy than that is discrimmination and they can't do that.

I have talked to the school and I have to say they have no idea what they are going to do. They want to hold her back because of her missing 3 weeks of school when they wouldn't let her go. I will not let that happen. I will turn into that mother that is always there and nobody wants to deal with. I am kind of like that now. They say that they have never had to deal with a child with epilepsy. All I had to say was that's not my problem and get over it. She does take meds but we only take ones that have the least ammount of side effects and if she starts to lose weight we change drugs. She is too small to lose weight.
