Hi there Don't worry as your daughters height is within normal limits of normal though it is on the lower side of normal. Just give her good balanced diet with sufficient amount of protein & regular activity, play , swimming etc. Share Mom & dad's height so I can give you her appox height she will attain. Also If you have her previous records of height & wt, please share it so i can see for her rate of growth. Take care
