My DD turned 4 in May.

Over the past few weeks she has become quite pale and is really tired by about 3/4 o clock. Sometimes she is so tired she can barely talk and just wants to go to bed.

She is usually very fair skinned but to me she looks extra pale at the moment.

Does anyone else have a 4 year old who is like this?

I have seen our GP who is satisfied this issue normal but will check for anemia if I am worried.

Am looking for some reassurance really. Should I take her back to gp or put it down to a tired phase?

My DS was like this. He needed his tonsils out. They were extremely large and effected his breathing at night. He snored like a bear. Hope you figure it out smile

Has she been tested for aneamia?

Sorry didn't see your last sentence I would do the test it's very easy (pin prick) and would be easily solved.
