What do you feed them? How do you easily increase caloric intake? Miss Silvi saw the paed yesterday who couldnt find a reason she had fallen off the bottom of the weight chart ( she's below the 3rd percentile line after hovering between 25th and 50th up until she was about eight months old, nine months ago). Her length and head circumference are at 25th and 50th, incidentally.
She is a pretty good eater, I thought, downing eggs, avocado, meat, fish, butter, nuts,rice, spinach brocolli carrots etc with great gusto,
What is Carnation instant breakfast? Dee.s? BT?
We took more b/w (yuck) to check her thyroid in case my thyroxine meds are getting through too much in my breastmilk. Watch this space.
I hated being back in hospital setting big time after older DD's critical heart defect drama, I have to say. Had to come home and drink wine and cry...more PTSD to add to my little cocktail of IVF and earthquakes! Sheesh.
