So, DD was born 7 lbs, 15 ounces and 20 inches long. She ended up in NICU for 10 days at birth due to meconium aspiration pneumonia. She was then breastfeeding almost exclusively ( a bit of formula) until six months when she started solid foods. After that time, she slowly went down in percentages for height and weight. She is now 18 months old, weighs 18.8 pounds and is 29.5" tall. She is a VERY VERY active child and is easily distracted at meal times. She sleeps with me and breastfeeds at night and usually once when I pick her up from daycare. She doesn't like cow milk or most of the milk substitutes we've tried.
Had her f/u appt today and they are considering three things 1) milk intolerance, 2) celiac disease or 3) cystic fibrosis. When I heard about CF, I flipped. I had a negative screen while pregnant (along with a normal amnio) so hadn't considered that a possbility. I'm scared and worried. We are trying the dairy free thing first to see if that makes a difference. But I'd truly appreciate any suggestions on how to get her to eat. She just seems uninterested.
