That sounds almost exactly like my 2 year old. She would eat like a pig and still wouldn't gain anything. And in the beginning she was loosing weight. Some of the doctors freaked out and admitted her to the hospital and had me suplement my BM which ended up with me just formula feeding. After she stopped loosing weight though they finally stopped freaking out as much.
