Your baby's weight is well below the average for her age.Her weight is in the lowest 10% group for babies of 14 months.Is she getting enough in the way of solids as she should be on a full diet now?Try her on a good tasting follow-on milk such as Parmalat First Growth milk and see if she will take it.
