My daughter was born very small and light at 1.9 kg or 4.18 lbs and height 45 cm and she was not a premmie. She did not went into icu and her health was certified perfect by the PD. She is now twenty one months and still very small at 7.5 kg or 16.53 lbs and height only 75 cm or 2' 5" all the way below the lowest percentile, even smaller than the infants in the childcare she goes to. She eats alot non stop and loves rice and bread and most times ask for another helping of her meals, snacks on bread and biscuits in between meals. I do pour olive oil in her meals as well. She also drinks 640 ml of milk a day, recent months changed from enfa to pediasure. She is also extremely active.
My hubby and I are both 155 cm or 5' 1", that could explain on her height but we are not on the thin side...even when we were infants.
I'm really worried about her height and weight gain but her PD told me there is no miracle or any medication to this. As long as she is healthy, things are good but everyone, teachers, parents, relatives and friends who see her are asking me why is she so small and this is really bothering me and I am really lost on what to do next to help her grow.
Anyone who has small toddlers like me and eventually your child caught up? or am i feeding her correctly?
