My Beautiful tiny girl

I just need to share my concerns with someone. My daughter is beautiful and so full of energy and life. My only concern is that she is almost 2 and weighs in at just barley 19lbs and 29inches. She hasn't gained weight or grown since she turned 15months old. She is on a supplement drink to get some of the calories but that seems like it is just maintaining her weight. She will be getting evaluated by early intervention for her speech she does not talk much and they are also sending a nutritionist to see her. The doctors also have said that if she does not show an improvement by her 2nd birthday they will start doing genetics testing and other blood work to see why she is so tiny. Everyone tells me not to worry but she is my little girl emphasis on the little part and i worry about her alot. She is still in 12 month clothing and some of that is still way too big.

Every baby is different! My baby girl is small too! At almost 2 as well of course she weighs in at 23 lbs. I know babies that are younger then her, and weigh 2-5 more pounds then her. People always have commented on it to me, and it used to bother me but after speaking to a lot of professionals and family and friends I have learned that every baby develops differently and all those charts are just guidelines and not going to be the exact same for every baby. Enjoy her being tiny! I wouldn't want some big girl anyway. They are much sweeter "petite" :-)
