A 38-year-old member asked:

My 2 year old is significantly shorter and lighter than her peers. Should I be concerned?

Dr. Kenneth Cheng
Family Medicine 31 years experience
Possibly concerning: When a child is shorter and lighter that his/her peers, this may be normal or it may be a serious condition known as failure to thrive. This depends on several issues including ongoing medical problems, medications, the child's actual age compared with the actual age of the peers, and an evaluation of the child's growth chart from birth to present age. See your family doctor or pediatrician soon.

Car seat: Use an approved toddler car seat correctly. Sometimes toddlers may not want to be placed in car seats. Gently but consistently put your child into the car seat every time you ride in the car. Give the child a toy to play with once in the seat. Parents wear seat belts. Never leave your child alone in a car.
