Hello. I'm new to Just Mommies and this forum. My daughter was diagnosed with FTT about a year ago. Since then we've tried a variety of things to increase calories and get her to eat. Nothing works because she doesn't swallow her food. She chews it up and spits it out. Finally, a few months ago we started with a new G.I. He put her on a NG tube, and did a milk scan test. It turned out that her stomach empties too slowly. Which is why she is never hungry, and never learned how to eat. She just turned two, and I'm happy to say that she has gained three pounds since starting the NG tube. She is now a whopping 20 pounds! We still have a long road to go because she has to relearn how to eat, but we're seeing an OT for that. I'm glad I found this board, and I look forward to chatting with you.

Welcome!! This board is a little slow moving, but the ladies here are great and full of knowledge and support. I'm Tracy and my little guy, Jonah, is my slow to gain weight child. He's 19 months and weighs 18lbs. Glad your little one is putting on weight! Looking forward to getting to know you!
