Quick stats: DD born at 27 weeks, weighing 2 lbs, 2 ounces and is now 18 months actual and weighs 18.5 pounds.
I am almost laughing at myself because not long ago I posted on another thread about how my doctor didn't want us worrying about our DD's weight because she was developing fine. Well, her 18 month appointment didn't go the same way. Her little growth chart is no longer growing and while our doctor isn't overly concerned about her not being "on the charts" she does want us to give DD two 8oz bottles of PediaSure a day for the next two months. We also have to go back at 20 months, instead of 24, to check her weight.
So we have been at it for about a week and I am getting very frustrated. If I actually get two full bottles in her a day, she doesn't really eat anything else. On days that she actually eats a good breakfast, she won't finish two full bottles. I also find myself constantly pushing her cup in her face trying to get her to take more and I hesitate to give her water! That really bothers me. If the doctor doesn't see a marked improvement by 20 months, we will have to get back in the weight watch circus and I really don't want that. I had enough of that during the 11 weeks we were in the NICU.
I don't know if I am just venting or looking for words of wisdom.
