Though Los Angeles children come in all shapes and sizes and grow at widely varying rates, sometimes an extremely low weight indicates a medical condition called ‘failure to thrive.’
This general term is used for children who weigh significantly less than other healthy Los Angeles kids their age.
According to Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, in cases of children with failure to thrive the rate of weight and height gain ‘may be more important than actual measurements.’ 1
Los Angeles children in the ‘failure to thrive’ category weigh lower than the 3rd percentile. In addition, their weight is significantly lower than what is considered healthy for their height.
In addition, Los Angeles kids with failure to thrive usually have delayed development in physical, social, and emotional skills.
In California, failure to thrive can be caused by numerous factors, both physically and environmentally. Los Angeles parents who are concerned about their child’s development should consult their pediatrician, even if no specific medical symptoms are detected.
