My 6-month-old is not gaining weight. The baby is in the 60 percentile in terms of height but the 3 percentile in terms of weight.
The baby is active and sharp; everything else is all good. The pediatrician has prescribed anti-reflux medicine but that hasn’t helped much. We say a GI and GI wants to do some trial and error. However, we are scared of the side effects. Has anyone been through this? What worked for you?

Was baby gaining weight well prior to this? Like on their curve from birth-3mo and then a sudden dropoff? Or has always been around 60 and 3?

My 6mo has also slowed down on weight gain and our doctor recommended to try and get extra calories while we introduce solids. So instead of just carrot purée for example, carrot+butter.

We introduced solids last month; adding butter is a good idea. We have also been fortifying the milk with formula.
Baby initially was in the +20 percentile in terms of weight but that has been going down since month 1.

My 8-month-old is in the 40th percentile in terms of height but in the 2nd percentile in terms of weight. This has been true since he was 2 months old. The pediatrician is okay with it as long as he remains on the same places on the curve.

Homestretch I’m at almost 37 weeks. I feel like between yesterday and today- I grew so much it’s impacting my ability to find comfort dramatically. Sharp bones in my lungs, super tight belly, dull constant pain in my belly, punching my bladder, I can’t bend over, I’m so miserable. How do you cope? (Send help!)

Considering how intensely the OB office said I need my blood drawn at exactly 1 hour after glucose drink, would a 4 min blood draw delay skew my results? Not finding any current research.

I’m due in 3 weeks and my manager keeps giving me new work / new deadlines / putting more and more on my plate. I keep reminding her (yes her…and she has three kids of her own) that I might not be able to get to it before I’m out since my baby hasn’t shared her schedule with me…but then my boss just says something to the effect of “all the more reason to wrap it up sooner!” … anyone else dealing with this?
