DS2 was not born premature but he was born very small and with a heart defect. He had open-heart surgery @ 2 weeks old and suprisingly gained pretty well after. Now he's not only dropped out of his curve but he's way off the charts. I've tried giving him higher calorie foods and he's still very small and has poor muscle tone. Our holisitc pedi suggested that it was time to supplement with either formula or pediasure. I'm opting for pediasure but thought the baby had to be at least a year to start - is this true? DS2 is 10.5 mos and has been breastfed since birth. He's been eating solids for a few mos now.
