Isabelle had her two year check up this morning. As I had predicted, the doctor is not too excited with my daughter's lack of weight gain. At a whopping 22 pounds, my daughter is hanging on to the growth chart by mere threads. While he is not too worried yet, he wants us to more proactively get her to gain some weight. Our goal? He wants her to gain about 5 pounds in 6 months.
Now, Izzy is a GREAT eater. She eats almost anything you give her, and she eats a lot of it! She will eat more than my niece and nephew, who are both 4, combined! So, he reccommended Pediasure supplement. Fine, great! I want her to gain a little mass as well!
Well, I get home and start figuring out how much this stuff is and where to get it cheapest to find that this stuff costs an arm and a leg. Rougly $2 per little bottle. Obviously buying in bulk is cheapest but not by much, and not knowing if she'll like it, well, I don't want to have cases of this stuff just sitting around.
Does anyone know where to pick this stuff up cheap (good store brands??). Does anyone know if boost or ensure is ok for toddlers?
Or, does anyone have any nice high calorie recipies for smoothies or something? Any help you can be would be appreciated! Thanks!
