Re: Concerned about growth of my son

My daughter went through this. She was a premie so she has always been tiny. But grew like she was supposed to. And then about 5 mo old just stopped. No gaining weight, people often looked at me as if I was starving my child. I had her checked but nothing seemed to be wrong. I know that your case is a little different as there is a deficiency. But she is now 10 years old. She grew in spurts. It wasnt gradual it would be quick and then nothing again. She is still very thin but her height is right on target. I still get looks because she is sooo thin. But she eats like a grown man sometimes. I wouldnt worry too much. Just continue to follow dr and with check ups.
