Often they do lose a little when they have added height.

Is there any other supplements you could do without increasing her volume?

My ds is the same age as your dd.

He doesn't eat very much (compared to other children his age) but then he's always been a fussy eater. I thought his appetite would increase when he started full time school last half term but it hasn't really.

I think they do go through strange phases of growing or not growing. Atm ds' head seems quite large compared to the rest of his body and his older sister has suddenly grown giraffe legs.

Is she pooing normally? There are conditions where people are not getting the goodness out of their food properly which can explain weight loss or poor growth, but their poo is normally affected - eg lots of soft and greasy poo.

Maybe a full blood screening is called for Riven, tho i was thinking re extra calories in the same volume you were already using so not to discourage oral intake.

Maybe the increased cream/butter is having the opposite effect??

Would cous cous be fine enough? And what a pulses, I think they have quite a lot of carb?

Nope, the cream would give me to the runs.

Second pulses, rice and beans like butter beans that can be pureed or mashed when cooked?
