Q.

underweight

My daughter was born at weight 2.57, 6 weeks she was 3.98, 10 weeks 4.5 and 14 weeks 5.28. I am not happy about her weight, she is 6 months old and still looks very tinny and even when you pick her up, she is very light. I know I see her daily but I sometimes get the feeling she is not growing. She still wears 0-3 months clothes and very few 3-6 months fit her (even that not properly, still a bit big). She is very active and the only worring factor is her weight. Please help.

She is probably perfectly normal. The only way to find out if there is anything to be concerned about is to have her checked by the clinic sister nearest you or by a doctor.
