Re: Failure To Thrive
But I also haven't heard you indicate that your supply is low, which means that if she is truly FTT that it would more likely be a problem with your baby. Absorption or something. So formula might slow down digestion and leave the "weight" in her longer, it's just a bandaid. It's not finding the real issue and in my not scientific opinion it is counter productive. I think you need to look at her gut, either in the form of allergies or reflux, which can be severe enough to inhibit absorption and therefore greatly slow growth.
