Any tips on the high calorie nutritious food? Just in case there's anything I'm not already offering, or new ideas on serving it.
We focused on high fat but nutritious foods. She eats avocado, eggs, nuts, cheese, etc. We use butter or healthy oils to cook her food in when we make her something (just a small amount but it adds up.) She also likes chocolate smoothies (whole milk or almond milk, banana, chocolate nutritional drink powder, and sometimes we add peanut butter too.)

My dd is all over the place. She was born on the 25th centiles for height and 9th for weight (or maybe vice versa?) and quickly shot up to 50th for both (she never lost any weight after birth) - she stayed around the 50th for a while then gradually fell to 9th, she then had a growth spurt and went up to 75th for weight and 91st for height when we got her dairy allergy sorted.

Now she's tiny for her age, she's 2 and wears 9-12m clothes (some 6-9 also) with the odd 12-18 month thing thrown in there. She's a size 4 shoe. I'm starting to get worried about how small she is, people are always commenting on how advanced she is for her age because they think she is about 1 and they are shocked when they find out she's actually a normally developed 2 year old, lol.

I don't know tbh, we are having a lot of trouble with the health visitor who won't give us an appointment at the baby clinic because she sees a dietician, our dietician measured her head circumference at her last appointment. We weighed her on the wii (clothed and wearing a nappy) and I can't remember her weight but I plotted it on the chart and she was just under the 9th centile. Neither her dad or I are tall/heavy so I'm not overly worried. I was more concerned when she was nearly on the 91st centiles!

Emma has bounced around all over the charts, it seems to take a few months to notice a large drop or gain. She's been anywhere and everywhere between 14th-71st centile for length, and the 29th-68th for weight.

She was born on the 60th centile. By 4 months she had doubled her birthweight but she has not tripled it yet at 15 months. Her weight gain slowed after 4 months and went from speak of 68th centile to 29th, which was a gain of 400g between 6 and 9 months (a pound I think). She has been eating like mad and is now 41st centile fully clothed for weight, and 48th for length.
