Hi my son is 19 months old and only 20lbs. He has only gained a pound since 12 months. Before that he was in the 80% on charts and now he is below the charts. He has peanut, egg, milk allergy, so what can I feed my child. He was put on Prosobee formula a month ago and is drinking 4 glasses a day. They are running blood work on him and other tests. Has anyone else experienced a weight problem because of allergies. He was diagonosed with peanut allergy at 12 months but egg and milk 1 month ago when I suspected an allergy we went to allergists. My ped. says weight problem not realted to allergy. What do you think, Any good recipies I am stuck!!!!! If it doesnt have milk and egg then its got peanuts when I go to the grocery store I am frustrated!!!!
