I am also concerned about your son's lack of progress as regards his growth and weight gain. His weight is well below the average of 13.5kg for boys of 31 months and is on the 10th percentile line, the lowest 10% for boys of 31 months. His height is on the 0.4th percentile line on the boy's growth chart, the very lowest 0.4% of all boys of his age. He certainly is not taking enough fluid or nutritionally important foods in spite of what appears to be a considerable improvement in his appetite since you last posted.I presume that a dietician is advising you.It would be best to consult a paediatric gastro-enterologist in the first instance so as to get some idea of what the problem is as regards your son's poor growth and weight gain.May I suggest that he sees Dr Elizabeth Goddard at the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town [021 6585111]
