I believe I briefly mentioned somewhere that Jonas hadn't gained any weight since gaining 3 pounds in a week when we brought him home. While the doctor seemed nonchalant about this issue face to face he proceeded to mark my boy as failure to thrive in his medical records. This will not do, friends! Oh, this will not do at all!!! Operation Chubby Buns has begun and will be in effect until my son packs on some pounds. I want to be able to count the rings on his arms and thighs, I want his gut spilling over the top of his diaper, and his chin to touch his collar bone if you know what I mean. hahahaha
We've been giving Jonas as much food as his little body can stand (which is a remarkably large amount) without him becoming over stuffed. The average daily amount of Whole Milk our pediatrician recommends kids Jonas' age have is 20 oz. We're giving Jonas 24oz AND we're giving him a pediatric nutritional drink daily as well. I already notice a new fullness in his cheeks. Unfortunately, though, Jonas has a stomach bug today. He's had multiple diaper blowouts and his appetite is decreased. I hope this doesn't throw the progress we've been making toward chubby buns off track. I'll keep you updated.
