My two year old little girl is not gaining weight. As far as the growth charts go, I can't remember when she was even close to it for her weight. She weighs 19.6 lbs and 32 in tall. The doctor has had her on pediasure since she turned 1 and it doesn't seem to help with adding weight. For liquids that is all she is to drink, and we are to get her to try to eat as much as she will. She is not a good eater at all! She will eat a couple of bites for lunch then a couple for dinner and that is about it. Breakfast is her best time. She loves pancakes and eggs. If she doesn't eat much for dinner we try to give her a spoonful of peanut butter to at least get some protein in her. She loves fruits and vegetables, anything with not much calories! The doc has done bloodwork which has come back all normal. She is hardly ever sick, a couple of sinus infections and that's it. Mentally she is right on track where she should be. She was delivered at 38 weeks weighing 7 lb 2 oz. Anyone have any ideas how to get her to gain weight?
