Not sure if this should be here or in allergies maybe?? I will post it in both just in case..My 4 year old L went for her 5 year old well check last Friday..She is 39 1/2 inches tall and 35 pounds..Her iron level tested at 12.6..Her Ped(literally) is screaming because she seems to be falling off the charts..35th percentile..
My observations this year is L has grown..she went up a 1/2 size in shoe(8 1/2) wears between a 3-5t in clothes depending on the brand and style..She has thinned out the last few months I think was due to gaining a bit of height..She feels heavier now where before she was very very light..Her face has filled out..She doesn't look under nourished like she did last year when I was constantly fighting to keep gluten out of her system.
She is gluten,dairy,soy and apple free..Once we got the gluten and dairy out she seemed to start growing again although it took prob 9-15 months for that to happen..her iron finally stabilized(and it stayed low even with being on 2 iron supps)..
Yes she is one of the smallest in her class..But mom is super tiny and petite too..she eats like a horse most days and soo soo the next..but she eats healthy..for the most part..yes she does get the occasional burger(without the bun) from mcdonals and fries from BK(they are gf)..she doesn't eat much in the way of sugar but eats lots of fruits,meats,gf pastas,rice ,veggies ect..junk..potato chips,fruit snacks and marshmellows are her one true love:))
Do her stats seem off to your 4 year olds(she will be 5 next week)???
Thanks for listening...and to any advice offered..
