: I am a speech-language pathologist working with a 15 month old child who may have CP. She has feeding issues and currently has a GI tube. Could anyone tell me how much a child is expected to weigh at 15 months. The girl I see only weighs about 15 lbs.
a child having a GI tube is not going to gain weight normaly,maybe she could have a high cal formula added to her milk.but at 15mons,she should be at least 25lbs.and i would see if she could get an opp.with a nuroligist,and have some CT scans and a MRI done,so that the cp can be diagnosed.
