     yep...me too.  My almost 4 year old weights a whopping 25 maybe 26 lbs with her clothes and shoes on...LOL.  My 9 year old weighs 39 lbs...but he can have no such thing as pedia sure or milk based supplements that would help him add weight and they do not make a soy alternative to pediasure!   I let my youngest drink chocolate milk (she is on soy) and such because she NEEDS the extra calories or can you imagine how tiny she'd be?  I fee my kids healty meals for the most part.....but my kids just are't big.  Even my middle child is in the bottom 10th pecentile. My oldest and my youngest are even on the chart...I hear ya.

    Quoting CTRedSoxMom:

    I may not have had that, but I had a child with faiure to thrive who is still in the less than 5th % so I know all about weight gain and feeding issues.

    If you have a child with a feeding tube and very little oral feeding ability there are NO alternatives.

    Yes they do make a soy version it is called Bright Beginnings Soy Drink. Exact same thing as pedisure but without the dairy. A Pedi can prescribe it also.

     So if your child needs to gain weight why not offer them a coconut milk smoothie?  It has 14 g. fat per serving.  Throw in some fruit and avacado and you have a great tasting smoothie that's all natural and high in fat and calories.  I think formula is crap and wouldn't give it unless completely necessary and it would take a lot of convincing for me to believe it would be necessary.

    That's something my child wouldn't even touch, my dd is very picky about what she eats or drinks.

     Ever try it?  My son is pretty picky too but he loves them.  At first the only way I could convince him to drink it was if I have him a fun bendy straw. lol

    Yea she doesn't like Avacoda at all she barely like fruits and veggies, she's a meat eater. And the only milk she drinks is whole milk or chocolate milk. She just doesn't like them. Maybe when she gets older who knows.

     You could sneak the avacado in because you really can't taste it (seriously! lol) and you could use whole milk but since she doesn't like fruit it would be an issue. lol
