My daughter is 7 months old. She has lost a pound in one month. She is almost just over twelve pounds. She was IUGR for a while when I was pregnant with her. One of my sons did this. They just said he has FTT and never tested him. He is 3 1/2 and 23 LBS. I know something is going on with them, but the doctors keep saying to wait and see. Anyone else been through this? What do I do? I am worried.

    Do you breastfeed or formula feed?
    My first thoughts are tongue tie/lip tie and milk protein intolerance.

    My oldest is allergic to milk. We use other things. She is both formula and breast milk.

    Unless you are specifically eliminating milk in all forms from your diet, you are almost certainly still consuming milk. Other than the obvious: cheese, yogurt, butter/margarine, chocolate, ice cream; it's in tons of other processed foods, dressings, seasonings, etc.
    Also, formula is milk based unless you're buying something special.

    What about the tongue tie? Has baby been evaluated for one? That can cause low weight.The breastfeeding group could really help you with that.

    We are completely milk free.
