Your son's birthweight was below the average for newborns and he has followed the same line on the infant weight chart. His current weight of 8kg at 13 months is on the 2nd percentile;the lowest 2% for baby boys of 13 months.His height is also well below the average for his age. He may simply be following a family growth pattern, but his lack of interest in any food is of concern. It would be worthwhile trying him on Pediasure to try to get his weight to improve. Do not force him to eat anything.As his weight is so far below the average for his age it really would be best to ask your paediatrician to see him just to be sure that he is well and the weight issue is simply a familial pattern.
