Great Product

Pros:
Simple To Take. Produces Results. No Side Effects. Helps gain weight.
Best Uses:
Daily Use. Weight gain/extra calorie. REc by nutritionist.
Describe Yourself:
parent of child.

Have been using this for 4 yrs for a special needs child who had a severe weight loss and feeding refusal. Our gastro and nutritionist recommended we use this for extra calories and weight gain.It works. I see in reviews that people are trying to add it to liquids, but I was told it was easier to add to solids like yogurt ,oatmeal, pudding as you don't even know its there. Use daily and it adds calories.

Question:
My daughter is 15 months old. The nurse practitioner said she wants her to try this product because she wants to see if she'll gain weight in 3 months. My daughter is well below the growth charts for weight/age, and the nurse practitioner thinks she may have cystic fibrosis. Before we go to an endocrinologist for testing, she wants us to try this product. How much should I give her? She's currently only 18 pounds.
