DD had to go to her pedi today since she's been sick and when they weighed her she was 20.5 pounds, only 2 ounces more than her one year appointment 2 months ago. The doctor seemed slightly concerned about her weight and said that she needs to chunk up a little. What are some healthy ways to help her gain?

My son had to have PEdiaSure for a while. He's 16 months and exactly 20 pounds.

One bottle of pediasure per day should help. Thats what we had to give DD for like a year.

Months! But pedis sure I guess! Elliot eats butter packets lol, but they don't help her gain any weight. She's yet to hit 20lb

I saw that xD How tall is she?
Also thanks ladies, I'll probably grab some pediasure and see how she does with it after she;s over this stomach bug.
