To the people who make comments about your child's size? Do you say anything?[/b]
Usually if someone comments on him being small, i'll just smile and say "Yep! He is.." If they press further, i may give slightly more info such as "he has a kidney condition, and we're working on it." This rarely happens though...

There was one time though while waiting to check out at Wal Mart, the woman behind us had a daughter who was maybe 7 or 8, who's also dealing with FTT. So we really got talking, more detailed, etc... It was really nice actually to meet someone in person going through the same types of struggles.

So yeah... It's never been a huge deal, and i've never gotten any blatantly rude comments. I don't know how i'd react if i did though... Probably not well!

I have gotten some rude comments before. I just smile and keep my peace. If someone wants to be ignorant then let them be! I've had people ask me if I was sure of her age too, like she was younger than I thought she was. Those I laugh at.

When someone makes a comment about how small she is I will say something like "yep, she is tiny".

We don't get very many comments because Paige is tall. She is REALLY REALLY thin but it is hard to tell when she has clothes on. When her clothes are off she looks sickly thin and frail. If someone does comment I just say "yep, she's small".

I just dismiss it and say, "Yes, she's small." Every now and then I'll get a really rude pushy person who will just not drop it. Eventually, I just walk away. I still remember one time when Anna was 16 months or so where this old woman at the grocery store was going on and on and on about how tiny Anna was. When she saw another friend of hers, she's like, "Hey Harriett! You'll never guess how old that baby is! Guess!" I started walking away. I overheard behind my shoulder, "16 Months!" "NO!" "I know! Can you believe it?? 16 Months!" I was so angry. I was already halfway down the aisle at this point. I just don't get some people.

Fortunately, I haven't gotten anything over the top like that in a long time. I get the casual, "She's a little peanut," type comments, but those don't bother me because, well, she is!

I don't get too many comments yet, but now that her sister is getting some chub on her face, Dani looks sooo skinny next to her. I haven't said anything back yet, but once I think of something good, I will.[/b]
I've always wanted to reply with...."No, she's not little...you are HUGE" lol
