My daughter is now 16 months old and weighs 15 lbs 11 oz.
She was 6 lbs 4 oz when she was born, she has just gained weight slowly. She has been in the 0%ile in weight since about 6 months and they sent her to a children's hospital endocrinology specialist who said she couldn't help us and simply ran blood work, which all came back normal. My husband's family has all been small; his sister, mom, grandmother, and great grandmother are all under 5 feet tall and were small babies. My husband's sister and mom were around 18 lbs at 18 months old. Because of this i have never worried about Finley's weight. She has hit almost every milestone early, walking at 8 1/2 months. Her doctor put her on Pediasure for 6 weeks and it didn't add weight to her so they are wanting to send her to a Gastroenterology specialist. I don't want to refuse to check my daughter's health but i hate being thrown around to all these doctors when I truly believe she is a healthy LITTLE girl! Suggestions or comments, please!
