We went to the pediatric g.i. specialist and the nutritionist, and they both think that it’s probably just that little m is not taking in enough calories!  For a worrier like me, that was a relief!

So we are now adding nonfat dry milk powder to her whole milk, and a tablespoon of olive oil into her beef stew.  We’re working on getting her to drink more milk.  We’ve tried multiple sippy cups, regular cups, straws, spoons.  One time I even placed a Cheerio in every spoonful of milk – but she mastered getting the Cheerio with as little milk intake as possible.  Hmmmmm…

A few other suggestions we received from the doc:

Bananas with whipped topping
Eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce

As J recently said, “She eats better than we do!”  And…as of Monday, she’s up to 14 lbs, 10.5 ounces!  WOO HOO!
