Introduction: Failure To Thrive


Failure To Thrive: Failure to thrive (FTT) refers to a baby or child that is not developing as well as desired. The first question when considering FTT is whether there is actually anything wrong. Slowed weight gain (but not weight loss) in an infant could be part of the normal growth curve for this individual infant, or could merely indicate minor changes such as a more active baby. On the other hand, failure to thrive can have serious causes, and it is prudent to monitor weight, height, and other statistics. If there is something wrong, then it can range from minor breastfeeding pattern problems, to extremely serious metabolic and major organ disorders.
