Hi there Melissa!
Depending on her weight and height, depends on where she is on the body mass index. I guess this is what they will be going by, when deciding what weight your daughter should be at. I'm not sure if it's the same for the very young, as it is for teens/adults. But, they want weight in people with CF to be in the high normal range. This way, when they have an infection, it's easier to fight off.
For weight gain, I tend to snack throughout the day. If I'm not in any mood to eat, and try to eat a meal, I end up feeling sick and bloated.
I find snacking on crisps and sweets and fizzy pop is the best way for me too gain weight. This way though take s alot of teeth cleaning, because the last thing you need is for oral health to go wrong aswell.
I'm not very clued into what's right and wrong for a 2 year old, but there's some suggestions, to what I use for my own weight gain.
Hope your daughter doesn't have to have the bronoscopy or the IV's and that she can get some meat on her bones.
Keep us updated to how things are going!
