My daughter was born Jan 15, '08. She was 36w4d and healthy. She was 4lbs 15oz. She came home less than 48 hours later. She was slightly jaundice, but it cleared at about 10 days.
She has been diagnosed Failure to Thrive. She is only 10lbs at 6 months old. She is in the less than 3%, but she is porportionate. he has had slow, but steady weight gain. She does have acid reflux. pH Probe confirmed that. She is on meds for it.
She has very low muscle tone. She doesn't roll over often and has just began activly reaching for toys. She holds her own bottle as well. She can push up on her arms and has good head support. She is not independently sitting. She can sit supported for short times. (in her Bumbo, even longer) She kicks and waves her arms. She's not floppy or still.
She is very bright eyed, smiley, and "talkative." She looks "normal" She's just really small.
Dr's are pushing me to do quite a few tests. (EEG, MRI, ect)
I'm uncomfortable sedating her.(MRI) I will NOT allow it. I'm fine with the EEG though.
Am I being unrealistic in thinking my daughter is just small and is fine??
Any other tests or diagnosis that anyone might consider her to have?
The Dr's are hinting at one Dx, but I don't believe it. I'd rather not say what it is b/c I'd like an unbiased opinion.
