  • I wouldn't worry too much unless she suddenly had a HUGE drop in weight. Some kids are just built small. My daughter only weighed 21 lbs at her 2 year check up. My doctor wasn't concerned cause she's growing at a steady pace.

  • Only 21 lbs?? How big do you want her to be? If she eats good, she's healthy and happy, dont worry about her weight.

  • Don't look at just her weight. Look at her weight in comparison to her height. Is she propotionately on track? Has her growth been consistent? YOu can't look at your daughter and say she is small just b/c she weighs less then our children. Are you and her father on the smaller side?

  • I agree with spirit guide! My 2 year old only weighs like 23 pounds and my niece is the same age and weighs 22. So i think she is ok!
