4yrold weight concerns

My 4yr old daughter only weighs 27lbs. She was born with multiple heart defects, some of which have been repaired by surgery, others that are still pending future surgeries. With that said though, you would never know by looking at her that anything was wrong with her. Me being a mother though, is a little concerned about her weight.

What does the doctor say about her weight? I would guess that her heart conditions probably impact her growth some....

My perfectly healthy nephew was only 35 pounds at 7 years old... the same weight my son was when he turned 4! Some kids are just smaller and that's OK too.

If the doctor is not concerned about her weight... I wouldn't be either. If the doctor is concerned about her weight... take his/her advice on it.
