I took my 16 month old to the doctor and her weight was 23lbs 11oz, she was 32ins long. Her doctor told me that i wasn't not feeding her like i should. I couldn't beleive she said that to me. My daughter had been sick and wasn't eatting &doctor knew that i couldn't get her to eat. The doctor asked me what she eats and drinks and i told her she gets a cup of milk and cereal in the morning at lunch and supper she gets juice and whatever we have. Sometimes she doesn't want it so i will get her something else. Her doctor told me that she needs caloires. NOT to give her milk, juice, cereal or fruit chews which she loves fruit chews. That i should only give her fruits and water. How will my daughter get calories from water? So my question is what is the average weight for a 16 month old? Or is my doctor just crazy?Answer Question
