    Sometimes it is just genetics...sounds like the paed isn't too concerned then? Their stomachs are only the size of their fists...

    Has the paed suggested the sustagen?
    14months old.

    I don't even know how much weight they gain now....

    You need to only do things the paed says...

    Did he recommend liquid iron or anything like that?

    I wouldn't substitute with sustagen etc I would look into other things

    I've only seen the paed once when I was concerned. I might pay him another visit. His worth the $$$, and for my piece of mind also.

    Good idea who do you see? Also you could see a feeding specialist if you are concerned too

    If she's growing. ..on her curve. .meeting milestones. ..and the paed wasn't concerned i would steer clear. Especially since you said she's eating well.
    There are better ways than using a supplement if she's eating well.
    I give my DD pediasure on this pediatrician's advice and dietician at hospital.
    I would see the paed again. Perhaps even a full blood test to see if she's deficient in anything.
    Otherwise keep doing what you're doing. If you're tiny. ..and she's tiny. .genes mean a lot.

    I really recommend you speak to your paediatrician again. Not because I think there's an issue, but more for peace of mind for you.

    If you start filling her up with supplements that she does not need, it potentially could encourage her to develop poor eating habits as she gets her nutrition elsewhere. You say she's a good eater? Is she lethargic or irritable or displaying any other signs apart from the fact she is small that there are issues?

    My dd was the same size as yours at that age. I too am small. You mention you are small. Not everybody fits perfectly in that average range- there will be small kids and big kids.

    Please speak to a professional first... You sound so stressed about your dd's eating habits and weight gain, I feel so badly for you.

    My dd was small as a baby and I freaked about everything! Now she's at childcare she has caught up to everyone else she's still small 2.5 and size 0-1 but she eats so much! It might not be 'the right foods' but meh.

    My dd needed her tonsils out instant improvement
