Please pray that Colton would put on weight more rapidly

Hey everyone. Please pray that my son, Colton, would gain weight much more rapidly. He is under the 1% on the growth chart. He is almost 5 months old. He will be 5 months old on the 29th. He usuallly only eats 5 oz of formula at a time and we do feed him baby food about once or twice a day. Our doctor wants him to eat more than what he is eating but he refuses to do so. Of course if you try to overfeed him, that only makes him upset. I am just quite concerned about him because he seems to have the condition called “Failure to Thrive” and our doctor said that they need to have a little extra weight as babies because it helps them to fend off infections. We have tried everything and to no avail.

[INDENT]Prayer for a Sick Child

St. Gerard, who, like the Savior, loved children so tenderly and by your prayers freed many from disease, listen to us who are pleading for Colton. We ask God to help Colton put on weight and overcome his failure to thrive. This favor, we beg of you through your love for all children and mothers. Through Christ Our Lord, amen.

Yes, he is my first and only child.

Anyway, I am probably not going to be able to get his weight checked again until at least next week. We are very busy this week because of the holidays and I am not even sure if our doctors office is open this week. I seriously doubt that it will be open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Prayers for Colton and for you, Holly. :gopray:

The Memorare
Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known,
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help
or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petition,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.
