In brief: Depends

Failure to thrive is a condition that can have a variety of causes in infants and children.
The important first step is to identify the cause, then appropriate therapy can be pursued.

In brief: First Information

There are many, many causes of failure to thrive.
Thus before any therapy, you need to determine why there is a problem.This may require a detailed medical history, a good physical exam, blood tests and imaging studies. Your peduiatrician and perhaps a specialist needs to get involved.
