Gus has lost 3 lbs in the last month! I weighed him sometime in February, for diaper sizing, and he was 37 lbs. Today, on the same scale, he is 33 .5 lbs! I always weigh him in just a diaper so it isn't swayed by clothing or shoes. He has had less of an appetite lately too. Should I be concerned? I am going to weigh him once a week now and keep an eye on him.

I don't know...as a mom, I would be concerned too. Maybe make an appt. for him with the ped. for another opinion if he keeps losing. My 6 yr old is a skinny little guy who weighs very little..I worry but the ped. doesn't because he's always been very healthy. It drives me crazy because he eats next to nothing.
Hope Gus starts gaining!
