I've been lurking on here occasionally and looks like we may be joining you all over here. My son, Jonah, has always been small. I was induced at 38 weeks due to IUGR and he was born weighing 5lbs 1oz and 17.5". He gained well for the first 3 months and started slowing down. He was following his curve at the 3rd %ile though so we weren't concerned. At 4 months he dropped a little under it but not much. A further drop at 6 months and today at 7.5 months, he's dropped even more. He weighs 13lbs 10z now and is 25". We have to add canola oil to his cereals and veggies now and will be starting meats this week. We also switched him to a soy formula b/c we think he may have a milk allergy. Anyways, looking forward to getting to know you all!

sounds like your peanut is about the same size as mine was at that age. *hugs* I hope he has a growth spurt and gains for you. Wouldn't canola oil cause loose stools?

Hi, and welcome! I'm sorry to hear your son is having trouble gaining weight. Hopefully this new formula will help and you will see improvement. Good luck adding new foods!

Thanks for all the welcomes. We've taken him off the soy formula, as his smooth baby soft skin is now dry and covered with patches of eczema. He's never had eczema before, except for a very mild dry patch on his calves beside his ankles.
