I have a 33 month old daughter. At her last doctors visit I mentioned her small size and lack of growth. Her weight is 23 lbs. her height is about 32 inches.I was sent to an endocrinologist,but was told that she had no other signs of any growth disorders.She has been checked for thyroid levels that came back normal.She eats alot,with a wide variety of foods (so it is not due to poor nutrition).I just wonder if something is being missed, or is she just small for her age with no real health issue.I don't want to worry for nothing,but other people(strangers) are starting to make comments about her size(she is so tiny)any info or input would be helpful.
