I started him on coconut oil in the hopes that the good, high, naturally occurring saturated fat would increase his intake enough to finally put some weight on him. I knew he was getting heavier but I needed to know what weight he was at and try to figure out where I wanted him to get to. So, I ran him in for a weight check this week.
His weight in April: 26 lbs 13 oz.
This week: 33 lbs 4 oz.
His pediatrician couldn't believe it. Her jaw was on the floor. This boy has been meandering along on his own growth chart, barely making it on and after all this time, only two months in to using coconut oil, and he's jumped up 6 lbs!
He's moved from the 5th percentile to the 60th!

|How skinny he was when I started.|
No more ribs sticking out.
