I have to admitt they scare me :(
My dd will be 7 in less than a month and she is just under 40" tall. She is very very small, has never a day in her life made the growth charts. Her height never used to matter much to me, but now I am noticing things like her not being able to reach the sink to wash her hands or get up on the toilet herself, etc. She is noticably smaller than everyone at school and most of the other kids mistake her for being much younger than she is, and it bothers her.
We have had blood testing and xrays done and there seems no known cause to her short stature. The issue isn't only her total height but her growth rate which is very slow. Her endocrinologist is thinking of putting her on growth hormones, but I have so many mixed feelings. If she reached around 5ft as an adult I would have no issue, but at this point we have no idea if she'll even make it close to that. She's growing about an inch per year, so she won't even make 4ft adult height at this rate.
I do'nt know what the right answer is, and I don't know what to do. Anyone btdt? Advice?
