comment How do we get our toddler to gain weight?
Speaking from my own childhood, make sure that your child is not getting too much milk (32 oz might just qualify as too much!). Calcium can block iron absorption leading to anemia. I had anemia as a child and it took our pediatrician a while to figure out the problem until it was mentioned that I was drinking about a gallon (64 oz.) of (powdered) milk a day. Note that I was older (and larger) than your child, I'm not a doctor, etc., so take it with a grain of salt, but if you haven't already done so, I would verify with your own pediatrician that this diet is safe!
