  • Around 20 lbs for 12 months. So, give her a few extra snacks and some whole milk.

  • She does seem a bit small to me. Has she always been small? What did your pedi say you should do?

  • my daughter is the same way, they did all kinds of test and everything, even said i didnt feed her or take care of her properly. but i feed her, she eats all the time. . . she never stops. but her dad is 22 years old and weighs 110 pounds soaking wet with boots on. her grandmother on her fathers side weighs 98 it just a fast metabolism? if you know shes healthy and youre taking care of her then .....dont worry. doctors dont know everything.

  • I would ask what percentiles she has been in since birth. My son was about 90th for height and 15th for weight all along and my daughter has been about 50th for both. If LO is still about the same percentiles then I wouldn't worry too much. Kids are different sizes.

  • My son was 33 inches and 21 pounds at 12 months. I don't think there's any reason to worry unless her weight has dropped and it doesn't seem like she's growing. All kids grow at their own pace and some are bigger or smaller than others.

  • I agree with everyone else, if her height and weight has been steadily increasing and she's stayed in the same percentiles, she's just small. If she has lost weight or had a sudden drop off, there may be cause for concern.

  • Screw the doctor. If she is healthy then don't worry. If the majority of women in your family are small then most likely she will be also. Every child is different. She may end up rapidly catching up to "the norm".
