Re: 8 mos. infant slow weight gain

i am new on these boards but i just had to reply to your message.
I am a mum of a robust 14 yr old with downs but when she was a baby she was so slow to gain weight, say an oz or two some weeks. They encoraged me to give her a bottle as well as breast feed ( I knew I could breast feed fine as I bfed my son for 14 months)
Have they given you a special down syndrome growth chart? Aparently kids with downs grow at a different weight than other children. Soon as we were given one of them it put our mind to rest and I think that your baby will catch up fine given time!!
hugs and best wishes
