My 3 1/2 year old son's Allergy/Asthma Specialist seen him yesterday for a check up. She said everything looks good, but SHE IS CONCERED about his weight.... He is 29lbs and 37" tall, The very 1st time she seen my son which was 7 months ago he was 29lbs, then 4 months later another check up 29lbs. She said he isn't gaining any weight (but not loosing any either). He did grow an inch from the very 1st check up he was 36" tall and is now 37" tall. She is calling his regular ped. to talk with her. My son is picky, trust me I try so hard Some days he eats pretty good, but most days he does not I cook him something he takes one bite maybe two and says he is done his belly hurts. My son isn't a junk food baby and doesn't drink pop at all and little juice, we stick with water and milk.... He eats things like grapes, bananas, apples, peaches, pears, cottage cheese, pickles, and will eat some meat like ham, pork and beef depending on how it's cooked. Gosh maybe there is more to this then what I thought....
I have copies of his check ups and at his 2 year visit he was 26lbs and 34 inches
She is also going to talk with his regualr ped. and see about having him referred to a Gastrologist (? on spelling)
He has already had many tests done from brith till now and all have been negative from CF to Allergies (skin test done), the only thing that has them puzzeled is the yeast in his body. Said that every body has some yeast and that my sons shows a large amount, but he doesn't have thrush (never had it) and only gets a yeast infection down there when he is put on a certain medication. He does have tubes for repeated ear infections (about 25 total) and he has had his tonsils and alnoids check, they are the typical size of a toddler (large, but normal) and his alnoids are a little englarged, but nothing to be concered about. Also he is on Pulmacore 2 x a day and gets Nasonex in the morning.
