Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that your lassie was premature and that she developed Kawasaki. Premature babies can take quite a few years to catch up their growth and weight. You will also find that her weight and growth will stand still of certain periods and then start increasing again. I think that you need to trust the Paediatrician in this regard and not stress all the time because young children feel when their mothers are stressed and this can be transmitted to them and also affect their food intake. I don't know where you live? in the UK perhaps? if so, you can ask you dr to refer your lassie to a dietitian who will help to assess her progress and set your mind at rest.
Best regards to both of you
