we have seen a nutritionist-we give her carnation instant breakfast, pedi sure, flax & olive oil, butter, peanut butter, sun butter, cottage cheese, whole milk, fat full yogurt, the list goes on. she has been sick on & off this winter so I know that has a lot to do with it. I am a petite person & my husband is average. my 4yr old son went along the growth curve average. we are not sure if we should be concerned or not here. what do you think ?

currently she is 15pds 14oz-was born 6pds 13oz full term

she is a picky eater-mostly just like the items above & raisins, grapes, fruit bars, chocolate, crackers, cookies, sweets.....

we have also tried tofu & avocado but she doesn't like either.

o & she's also getting about 8 teeth in right now-ouch!

thank you :)

Also, 15 months is about the time they get wicked active with walking, crawling, cruising....so she may not be sustaining her weight do to activity level.

Have you asked the pediatrician? They know a lot about averages and can offer up some medical advice as to why your daughter isn't gaining weight, it may be something as simple as she has a very fast metabolism. Keep trying new foods with her, it helps if you encourage them to help pick out food at the grocery store and allow them to help prepare the food too. Good luck!!

Hmmmm....what has the pediatrician said? She does sound petite, and some babies are just like that. Teething certainly can make it painful for them to eat.
