I took my 4 yr. old girl to a wic appointment today and they were concerned because she only gained 1/2 lb. in 6 months. She's always been on the petite side like me and doctors have told me several times that she was small, but looking at how she is proportioned they felt it was just normal for her. What has me a little worried is that her iron was low too. It was at 10.4/ I've had that problem for years as well, and have been told it should be at least 14. Could I have passed some kind of condition on to her? She seems healthy though. She eats (sometimes like a bird), she plays very activly off and on all day. Everytime she leaves one area, she is either running, skipping, hopping the whole way. She is very happy and hasn't been sick but for 2 days this year. Should I worry?
