Your son was born 2 weeks earlier than expected and has had problems in gaining weight since birth. His present weight is still well below average for a boy of 19 months which is 11.2kg.He sat at thge right time, but his crawling stage was delayed and his walking has been delayed.His development is certainly more advanced than a 10 month old baby but he should have been walking by now.He seems happy and well in other ways. The problems are developmental delay and problems with weight gain. Your son needs to be seen by a paediatrician and a careful developmental assessment needs to be done. In addition he needs to be carefully assessed for his slow weight gain. Conditions such as Coeliac disease and other nutritional conditions need to be carefully excluded by the paediatrician.Please let me know about your son's progress.
