Sorry for the lack of Blog Talk posting yesterday. I *think* my computer is finally back up to speed!
We have tried almost everything we can think of to fatten Will up...to help him gain weight. He has a feeding tube, so one would think it would be easy, but even when we were actively using the tube, he had a very difficult time. He has not gained weight in about a year's time. Since then, we stopped using the feeding tube (about 6 months now) and he is eating everything in sight. With no weight gain, much like the prior 6 months with the tube.
It makes no sense. We know all of the easy tricks. For some reason, I just don't think his body absorbs it properly. We assume he has a high metabolism.
For those who are curious, whipping cream, heavy cream, butter, olive oil, and avocado are great additives to food that you are boosting for calories. Carnation Instant Breakfast is good to add to milk, and I know that some make "super milk" by adding powdered milk to whole milk to boost it as well.
Any other ideas to add to this list? What are your tricks for weight gain?
