So my daughter will be 16 months old in a couple days.
We went for her 15 month check up/shots (she was sick, thats why it took us so long until we got her shots.)
and she still weighs 20lbs. She is 30 inchs long though.
Her sister who is 7 is the same way - tall and skinny.
They get it from my brother and father who are tall bean poles.
She eats - but she hates meats and fatty foods - she'd rather eat bananas and grapes and such then to eat chips or anything like that.
And i'm just wondering if your kids were/are the same way - and did you listen to the doctor's when they said feed your child butter in everything he/she eats? I just think that's gross... but the doctor has told me to do that.
He also said pedisure and feed her candy bars.
I don't want my child becoming obese like me - so why encourage her to eat unhealthy - when she loves healthy food? what would u do?

At 16 months my kids were 18.5 pounds, 19.5 pounds, and 20.5 pounds. They are all tall and thin, and they followed their individual growth curves staying on the lower end for weight and the higher end for height. My doctor never recommended I start feeding them more butter or other fat, and definitely not candy bars. I think you'd feel better if you met with a dietitian.
