Daughters health

Hi Doc,
Please can you advise. My daughter had a baby a year ago and is still fully breast feeding. Even though she was very thin before the baby now her weight loss is even worse.
I am concerned that she is even loosing muscle fat.

She has a good appetite but is not putting on weight at all.

Am I being over concerned or should she go to the doctor for a check up.

Hallo Worried Granma
I think she should maybe see a dietician to see if she takes in too little calories, or the wrong type of food for a breast feeding mother.
