As you may or may not recall, Brennan's pediatrician was concerned with Brennan's slow weight gain at his 12 month well visit. During the time between his 9 and 12 month visits, he gained only 5 ounces. His thyroid was tested at that time and the results were within the expected range, so we knew that wasn't a factor. His pediatrician recommended we see a nutritionist, set up bi-weekly weight checks and start adding butter to his food. After some thought, I declined all three. Brennan has a healthy and well balanced diet - so I continued with his current feeding program, adding healthy fats (such as avocados with olive oil) when possible, and decided to only be concerned if he started to lose weight. I am happy to report that at Brennan's 15 month well visit he gained 2 pounds, 5 ounces. He's now tipping the scales at 17 pounds, 5 ounces and is measuring 29 3/4 inches. This puts him in the 25th percentile for weight and the 75th percentile for height on the Down syndrome chart. Although pediatricians can offer good advice, we moms know our kids best and need to follow our own instinct - and I'm glad that I did.
