Dear Rida,

I am unable to understand where you got the notion that she is lean. She has the right weight for a 3 year old, and I would not worry at all about her weight. However, she may be looking lean since she may be a bit tall for her weight. I think you should concentrate on feeding her healthy rather than more food, and do it so that she enjoys her meal times and not by forced feeding. Stop her bottle if she is still using it. And avoid mid-time snacks
