22 month old

Good day,

My baby girl is 22 months old now. I breastfed her exclusively for 6 months and then she started eating, but I still breastfed her until she was 13 months old. From 4 to 9 months she was really fat... the last few months she has gotten taller and more active and she looks fine now. She weighs 13.5kg at the moment, which is normal for her age, but she has been around this weight since about 15 months, when she weighed 13kg. Should I be worried about her not gaining as much, because she eats well and drinks milk 3 times a day. She is very active, happy and healthy otherwise.

The average weight for a little girl of 22 months is 11kg. Your daughter's weight is far above this average and falls in the top 9% for girls of her age. So there is absolutely no need to worry about the fact that he has not gained weight since the age of 15 months.
