Hi, I'm new to this forum. I've posted something similar in another thread but would like to seek some advice here. Thousand apologies if this is a little long.
My ds will turn 7 mths in a couple of weeks time. He was exclusively breasfed for the first 6mths and i introduced solids (mainly cereals) a couple of weeks back. He has always been a low eight bb, around the 10th percentile.
Ok, to cut the long story short. I returned to work a month back. During the day when im gone, he has been taking very little ebm (approximately 4-5ounces) for the whole day. I was not very worried. Folks suggest that I 'let him starve' and that 'bbs will eat when they are hungry'. So i let it be.
However, during the last PD visit, his weight fell below the 3rd percentile. The PD even warned me if it continues, his development will be affected!
He suggested I add more cereal to his meals since he refused milk. I did, and the past two days he started having constipation!
He feeds well during the weekends, and Ive even taken to waking him up in the middle fo the night to feed him (he sleeps throught hte night). However, he is still not putting on weight! Recently he even seems to be rejecting solids. Im really at a lost. What can I do? Add oil to his milk?
