Feeding and Growth Problems


    Feeding and growth problems in infants can be indicated by a lack of interest in eating or a failure to add weight in the weeks and months after birth. This is sometimes referred to as "failure to thrive". It does not by itself imply abnormal intellectual, social, or emotional development, although it can eventually lead to such impairments. It may, however, be an indication of underlying disorders in the gastrointestinal system.
