Q.

RE: tiny baby

went for my baby' s one year immunisation shots, she weighed 9.7kgs, is this ok, and abt 73cm head to toe. my gp comments she looks so healthy and when i tell him she looks thin to me he says, i seem to mistake obese with being healthy. i dont know, she does look thin to me and she doesnt eat either. just answering you on question 860 were you asked me her weight. also shld i continue giving her multivitamin drops( moving to the syrup now that she' s a year) or it isnt necessary. please advise. also tried nan pelargon yu once suggested, she doent even take a sip of it, i guess its the soury that she doesnt like.

Your baby's weight is exactly on the average for her age and she is only slightly shorter than average. She is doing well and there is no need to worry so much. Do not give her multivitamin drops. As she is 1 year she can start on Nido or Parmalat First Growth milk.
