  • Her body knows what it needs and when to eat and gain. I wouldn't worry unless she starts to lose.

  • Depends on the child, her body, her activity level, metabolism, etc. If she is healthy, don't worry about it.

  • Unless she looks malnourished , don't worry .

  • Is she pretty active? If she is eating good then I wouldn't make too big of deal out of it. You could play it safe and ask her doctor. But I don't think that it's a major problem
