From your measurements her weight is just above the 50th percentile and her height is between the 10-25th percentile for her age. She is still in the Growth Chart ranges for her age. Suggest waiting to find out the results of the blood work. In the mean time, suggest giving her Pediasure or milkshakes (milk and ice cream blended), or yogurt smoothies (yogurt, fruit, and ice cream), in place of milk at all meals, for additional calories and protein for weight gain.
