8 mos. infant slow weight gain

Hello, Does anyone have any helpful information about infants with Down syndrome who are not gaining as much as they could/should be? My daughter's 8 month old has only gained 1/2 pound in the last month and a half. They have tried everything I've seen suggested, such as changing nipples, enlarging holes in nipples, etc. etc. She is an otherwise healthy little girl. So far, the docs are not terribly concerned. She is drinking mainly breastmilk with one feeding of formula a day at this point.

If any moms or dads out there have had any experience with this in an infant with Ds, your input would be extremely appreciated.

Thanks,
