My child was born at 28 weeks weighing only 1.5 kg. She is now 3 and she weighs about 8 kg. She is shorter than kids her age but speaks fluently and is hyperactive. I am worried if she will catch up with her peers.

The patient is my second child. His birth weight is 3.250 kg. But at his age of six months his growth is getting down. Now his weight is 6.5 kg and height is 70 cm. All reports including blood and also urine are ok.
