9 Month old loosing weight?

For no apparent reason my daughter is loosing weight. She was 18lbs 14oz (naked) at her 8 month check-up but today when she went in for a rash she was 17lbs 10oz (fully clothed). She doesn't spit up alot, isn't anymore active than normal, she's actually eating more then she was. her pedi dosen't know what it can be and is sending her to an asthma and allergy specialist thinking it might have something to do with the rash, but told me to keep an eye out for anything i think it might be and he'll do the same. Have any of you other mothers experienced this?

  • You said she isnt any more active. I was going to ask if she recently started crawling, scooching or cruising.

  • Yeah if she just recently learned how to walk or crawl, than that could explain it.

  • She hasn't recently figured that out. she walked for a week when she first turned 8 months but doesn't do that anymore. she scoots but has done that for months. thank you for the input
