My Dd is almost 2.5 yrs. She has always been petite and slow to gain weight. She does have allergies and we do not feed her food she is allergic to....
2 weeks back she suffered from a cold and fever (the works) and ate very little (as it is she eats very little...world's pickiest eater hands down) and hurled a lot... so lost about 1 pound in a week's time.
Usually when she loses that kind of weight after an illness she recovers and makes up for it in another 2 weeks. But now it has been 2 weeks and she has still not recovered an ounce of it.
Should I be worried?
Is babies' growth stalled during winter? Or was it summer. I thought logically in winter because of decreased activity they should put on more weight - no?
I think it's the sort of age when weight plateaus often, anyway.
I wouldn't worry as long as she's doing alright in herself otherwise. Bright, satisfied with meals, energetic, etc.
