Hello, My son is 1 year and 9 months old.. He was born at 9months and weighed 3 kgs at the time of birth.. He weighed close to 5-6 kgs at 6 months and that is the time we started introducing solids. He hasnt gained much weight at all. Currently he weighs 8. 3kgs however he is very active. Around 16-18 tooth have popped out, his appetite is low. It takes us close to an hour to feed him half a cup of rice sambar or ragi porridge. We had not given him cow's milk till the 17th month and have started giving him cows milk slowly in small quantities. His immunity is good and not had any fever or cold for the last 3-4 months I had approached the pedeatrician around 6 months back asking him to give some syrup which will increase his appetite. Doctor said it is not advisable to give him English medicine for appetite. For the last 1 month we are giving him 1 egg per day. His height is 79 cm. We both of his parents are not lean and also were not lean during our early years. Doctor said his head circumference is okay. I'm worried about his growth. What measures we need to take at this juncture. Is it a case of stunted growth. Will he be able to make up whatever rate of growth he has lost from his 6th month on taking utmost care on his nutrition. Thanks
