One year old only weighs 17 pounds. She's active and loves nursing. She's sometimes interested in solid food, sometimes not. Should i be worried?

It depends: Your daughter's doctor is the best one to know if this growth rate is right for her. It depends on how she has been growing, how her height and weight correlate, and how healthy she is.
