Opinion's Please...

Is Ziva just right or too thin?

She's 27 weeks. Last week she was 50.6 lbs. and 22.5 in. She seems to feel good to me in the ribs but she seems boney in the hips. What do you think?

Looking at the pictures i would say she could gain some weight, but would be fine without gaining any weight.
I mean, as long as you can't see her ribs or anything she is fine. Maybe add a little more food to what you usually give her if you are concerned.

I think she looks fine, lean but no obvious ribs showing

She looks perfectly fine. Definitely does not need to gain any weight.

Thanks so much for all of the input. I know lean is good and best for her long term health but sometimes her butt just seems so boney. Especially when she gets the zoomies and throws it at me...lol!

Again, thanks for the opinions

I think she looks just right.
