are you offering him only pureed foods or foods with a smooth texture (avocado, banana, etc)? maybe he'd do well with more texture

I'm confused. I just charted his wt, ht and head circumference percentiles on the WHO charts and he is not off the charts and has no declines. Just a slow trend up.
I know that his ped used to mention corrected age and actual age and I think they were tracking both. I don't know what they are tracking now. I forgot to ask.
My general understanding is that you use corrected age for milestones, etc up until age 2.
I did use corrected age in my charting, so I subtracted a month from his actual age so it's comparing apples to full term babies, so to speak.
Length shows him in the 50th.
Wt is in the 3rd.
Head is in the 15th.
So, I'm now confused as to why his ped thinks he is on the verge of FTT. He is still on the charts, at least per my charting.
I guess it can't hurt to add more fat to his diet (I know it's recommended for the first 2 yrs), though I don't want to throw anything off kilter by doing so. Moderation is the key I suppose.
But, I just contacted the feeding clinic that the ped had written an Rx for 3 months ago (I wanted to take a wait and see approach knowing how poorly he did with PT) and now I'm wondering if I should even pursue that. I know my son will probably not eat on command in front of others. Then again, I just don't know. We just had the horrible PT experience, so I don't know what his temperment will be. He's a very sensitive boy.
