Is your daughter on any medicine? My daughter has a problem with constipation. Found out food allergies can cause weight gain. Drs dismiss this. My dd gained 6 lbs in 2 1/2 months time while she was on lactulose, a sugary type medicine. It is funny now she is mainting her weight. I do keep her away from milk at times, found this causing her contipation.
