There are many possible causes for small babies, and the best person to discuss them with is the Obstetrician or Perinatologist. The physician taking care of your daughter has the best overall perspective on her history, medical condition, and the progress of the babies. All these factors (and more) need to be considered when discussing possible reasons for babies that are smaller than expected.
