what is failure to thrive
Its a condition that a baby can be diagnosed as having due to lacking in normal developmental milestones. Usually noticed at a drs. appointment. Not gaining weight, growing, lifting head or rolling over when he/she should be, not sucking properly. Things like that. Belief is it is generally caused by lack of stimulation by the parent. Leaving in the crib for long amounts of time, not holding or responding to its crying.
