Hmm, I don't know but is there any way to check his metabolism rate?
I think what really throws me thinking about this is that if he weighed 5-10 lbs heavier the docs probably wouldn't even blink at him eating like mad and not gaining any weight and I think its perfectly normal (or well it is here in MY house) for a child his age to eat everything in sight and gain basically nothing. Both my boys have/are doing it between 12-36 months and they gained very little weight during that time (Alex gained 4-5lbs total in those 2 years, but gained 3 of those the last year and Mason hasn't gained any weight from about 11 months and he's 16 months now). The difference really being is they gained a ton of weight in their first year.
Hopefully the speciallist can figure it all out for you and hopefully it will just end up being how he is!
