Thanks for your reply, a lot of useful info there!

Your story sounds a bit similar to mine. I'm on the slim side, turns out my mum said I was the same as a toddler but grew out of it. And this morning I discovered that DS is teething so that explains a lot! Will definitely look into providing more iron rich food and adding cream cheese to sauces. Thanks again!

My DS is 23 months old and weighs 10.96kg (about 24lbs) which is around the 9th percentile. He is still BF and never had a problem with solids, we skipped purees but didn't strictly do BLW. He always refused breakfast until about 3 months ago and now has Ready Brek with whole milk pretty much daily. Sometimes he refuses lunch or dinner but always eats yoghurt. He doesn't want me to feed him but when he feeds himself not much gets eaten, with the exception of rice or pasta. I was planning to night-wean him later this month but at the same time I don't want him to lose any weight IYSWIM.

He's been on the 9th percentile since around when he turned 1, prior to that he was always 50% or above. He occasionally snacks on breadsticks, crackers or cheese. I am trying to be calm at mealtimes but inside I'm freaking out. He doesn't look very skinny but I see most toddlers his age at toddler groups seem much more pudgy than he is and I can't help but worry a bit. Will he grow out of this? Any tips? My DD (5) is a voracious eater so I really haven't a clue here grin
