Being underweight can stunt your growth, which I'm sure you all know... So my question is: Is your child's height effected?

Sadly no...which is way worse than if he was short. If his height wasn't in the 70+% all the time I wouldn't be worried so much about his weight. He is just bones bones bones. Relatives that don't see us much will go to pick him up and when they touch his ribs they yank their hands back... Then I randomly get the glare from people we don't see much that don't know he has issues.... >

ETA: We had thought his height was slumping but he was just measured wrong.

Nyla is in the 12% for height, and below for weight. Im not sure if I would call her 'stunted' but she is short
