2pounds 8 ozs!!!!!!!!!!!! Doesnt that seem a little excessive at this age? (it doesn't surprize me cus he feels so heavy now) he has been eatting so much carbs cus he refuses everything else... not sure what I am going to do about his diet.... it is good that he is gaining but this rate might be a little too much

He is 18.12 now! (still a peanut but so much more chunkier than at 12 months - 16.4)

Maybe he's just gaining more now because he is such a peanut and his growth is just at a different rate Looks like you are also going to have to start saving for his grocery bill as a teen

Woooo hoooo! Have you talked to the doc about the rate of weight gain? Maybe he's just making up for lost time.

Compared to his rate of gain before, it is a lot, but for his overall size, THAT'S FANTASTIC!!!

i would not worry at all. Drake does the same thing and I think the doctor is glad Drake has always been a peanut too. I think it is healthy for the little guys to put on weight as much as they can I would be more worried if he put it on and was already chunky LOL.

Thanks girls! I am glad that he is gaining again,... it was a long 5 months of no gain at all

I just wish he would eat something other than cereal, bread, crackers, pasta... oh well, atleast he is drinking milk

My dr said nothing but why would he ..... after waiting over ONE hour in the waiting room he spent not even 5 mins in with us..... I asked him for a referal for speech, he said ok...... I said all he eats is carbs,,,, he said does he drink milk? I said yes.. he said, there you go, that is not a carb

at this point I will let it go and hope that he starts eating a variety again.... at some point he has to right ??

I would be so annoyed at your doctor if I were you..

BUT, way to go, Gav!!! I hope he grows out of his picky-ness soon, just for your sanity's sake!

That is awesome! I don't think you should be worried. If he was like 35lbs at this point you could worry. Most toddlers go through phases of eating. You can give him a multi-vitamin if that makes you feel better. I gave my kids a lot of zucchini bread type stuff and bean and enriched pasta dishes when they went through their carb phases. At least they got some veggies and fruit that way.

yay Gavin !! I know Cohen goes through periods where he will only drink milk. Sometimes up to a week, then he grows. He has did this since he was a baby.
