Quoting vajayna:" Of course they do, thats why she's on a feeding tube, so far its saved her life. She's been hospitalized 6 times and is about to be referred to a new specialist. She's teeny tiny: "


I wonder if she has an enzyme disorder that doesn't allow her to absorb nutrients...?

Don't they test for that as newborns? Isn't that what the pku heel prick is for?

It only tests for specific enzyme disorders.... there are far more than that. But yes they do.

My oldest was about 14lbs at 6 months old and my baby just turned 6 months old and he is 17lbs and 4 ounces. He is 26 1/2 inches long.
Every baby is different and I have learned that from both my boys.
