Nannu, DD grew another 1/2 inch! So since her physical in Jan she has grown 1 in & put on 3-4 lbs. Your girl is very young so she still has plenty of time to grow--chk her height 2-3x a yr.

Good to hear.

My daughter didn't grow somewhere between 6 1/2 and 7 1/2. That is what triggered her pediatrician to look at her thyroid. They found it was way low. I do believe that everyone here is correct, it is probably just a normal thing. But...since hypothyroidism can stunt growth, too and it goes often with celiac....have them do a blood test when they draw her blood the next time. That will rule out anything else weird going on.
I did not know that about the feet. That is good to know. I have been commenting on my daughters feet growing!
