    Yes good fats are for brain development apart from weight gain

    Hi all,

    My 10-month old son has the same problem. Dr also suggested us to try to make him gain weight and eat more fats.

    BeaMae - the food that you mentioned - butter and olive oil - would they be good for babies before 1 yr old?

    Thx.

    Yvonne

    butter is actually recommended as part of the meal for kids under 2 as it is a natural form of fat that kids need for brain development. avocado is also very good for them too - i mashed it in yoghurt for my baby when she was younger,\ and she really liked it.

    Try giving more carbohydrates like potato, sweet potato, rice, pasta etc. I used to give pureed fruits and veggies but when i switched to carbs for main meal my lil one gained weight.

    I have a small 10 month old baby too -- she was full term but low birth weight (less than 2.5kg; less than 3 percentile) at birth. Caught up a lot around 4 months old to almost 50th percentile but since 6 month-mark, back to moving around 10-20th percentile. She loves full fat yogurt and avocados, and eats a lot but just doesn't gain. Agree we mustn't overfeed. I referred to this a lot: http://www.infantchart.com/ - there's a good weight for length measurement which I think is probably more important that looking at weight or length alone.
