My daughter, born march 22.
Is quite small for her age,although she was only born 5lb 10oz.
At her doctors app yesterday she weighed in at 7.5kg or 16lb 5 oz..
they have been worried for sometime that she is far too small fo her age.So yesterday the doctor said to me there may be an underlying problem as to why she is tiny so they got urine sample's and took blood tests...
Im positive she eats enough..
Yesterday she had:
Breakfast- Rice bubble's (with yoghurt not milk) Half a banana,half a peice of toast and a 200ml bottle.
Morning Tea- 4 pikelet's and some dried fruit
Lunch-Apricot chicken (lots of veg & pasta) custard and a mini muffin
Afternoon tea-Fruit bar
Dinner- A mini Quiche, a few mini meatballs , a few peices of Tortellini and some grapes ( she will onle eat things at dinner time that she can feed herself)
then a bottle at bed time...
Has anyone else got a small child, or had a similar thing happen with tests etc?
She is eating enough isnt she?
