Q.

Weight

Hi dr

What is the avg weight for a 15 month old girl?
My daughter is only 9.5kg but she is healthy, but very petite. She is still wearing some 3-6 and 6-12 month clothes, She eats a lot, but likes fruits and veggies, not starched or meat.

She is also very very very busy. The pead said at 9 months that she is probably the busiest baby he has ever seen. Well that is 6 months ago and she is even more busy now. When can you safely say whether a child is just normal busy or hyperactive? most people dont know how I cope with her, but I think I have just gotten use to it.

Don't worry about her active behaviour as yet, one cannot tell at this stage if she is hyperactive ot not.Make sure that she has a good intake of Omega 3 and 6 in her diet and it may be good to give her a supplement such as EyeQ. Her weight is below average for her age, but she is of small build and eats well. She is probably just following a family pattern.
