Getting the extra pound

Today Reanne got her Chicken pox jab as part of her regular vaccination trip to our pediatrician.

Being 1 year and 1 month old, her weight was quite low at 8.5 kg. This makes her look smaller than her counterparts. Health wise, Reanne is doing fine overall. Her appetite is also improving lately as her drink more milk and eats porridge twice a day. It seems everything is fine with her.

But I don't seem able to put my mind aside about her weight. Is she eating enough for her body to develop? Can we parents do something about it? Currently Reanne still drinks breast milk and alternately milk formula daily. Our doctor suggested to let Reanne drink a better milk formula that comes with extra supplements. Sound logical. I want to give Reanne a try on it to help her to at least have a nominal healthy weight. At the same time to improve her appetite.
