Does this sound way off? Her pedi sounds really baffled and I just had a weight check today and they sent me home with all this stuff to get a urine and stool sample from her and they want her to go get some blood taken too. I don't know what to think of this, she is totally healthy and she had always been big for her age, when she was 1 1/2 people thought she was 2-2 1/2. She has not gained much since her 15 month check up, but she is still growing. She has never been a great eater, but I give her pediasure and vitamine and mineral supplements also. She can't drink milk because it constipates her and makes her tummy hurt, however her favorite foods are other dairy stuff like cheese and yogurt, but she also likes breads and grains. I just don't know how to feel about getting all these samples... any advice?Answer Question

She seems petite and perfectly normal. What's with the fascination by people and health care professionals to plump up our children - yet on the other hand they blast kids for being overweight. Idiocy.
