At his 18- month : visit, review his growth charts with his doctor. Expect a 4-6 lb. weight gain from age 1-2. Wean from bottles & don't allow him to drink milk or juice from a Sippy cup ad-lib. Limit milk to 16 oz./day from an open-mouth cup at meals & up to 5 more of milk products/day. Offer 1 tbsp./ yr. of age of each healthy food at 3 sit-down meals & 2 snacks/day. Give water, not juice, for thirst. See below.
