    Question without getting too personal -
    Our eldest was born a month early and was 5 pounds, 4 ounces at birth. At the week checkup, her body temperature was only 97 and she spent the weekend at the hospital. We heard the same phrasing as you've mentioned.

    Thing is, wife was trying to breastfeed but that wasn't working. As new parents without a clue,'s good that week checkups were/are a thing. We switched to formula and never had the issue again with the following three. Just something to think about.

    They've tried breastfeeding, bottle feeding breast milk, formula, and formula with cereal mixed in. They're about out of things to try. He's just not interested in eating. She just called and they're seeing a different pediatrician tomorrow. The regular ped didnt want them to wait for the specialist next Monday.

    And it's not sounding good for their pup. It wasnt the rug. Vet found calcified nodules thru his whole GI tract & just closed him back up while trying to figure out what has caused it.

    Sorry. That term failure to thrive is not uncommon and easily changes, but I do realize how disturbing it sounds. I was three weeks early and only 5.7lbs, for it all; hopefully such eases your concern. My father was barely eating upon recent hospital discharge. Antibiotic he had to continue is known to cause appetite loss. Due to such, I agreed that a certain medication known to cause increased appetite and weight gain as a highly common side effect be initiated. Can take a while, but his appetite improved over the weekend. Perhaps something similar might be suggested by the new doctor. Will keep all within my prayers.
