My daughter is barely on the growth charts, and is small for her age. I am not concerned,because I was always very small when I was young. The doctor, however, keeps pushing the issue that I get her tested & thinks that she should be placed on growth hormones. She is 3 and weighs 26.5 lbs and is 34.75 inches. She is usually healthy, except for the occasional ear infection. She knows her colors, can count to 14, can name shapes, and almost has the alphabet down pat. The doc. said that sometimes in children that are on the bottom of the growth chart it can effect brain function. Just curious if anyone out there has had their children placed on growth hormones????
