Need advice on Anemia Symptoms for my daughter

Can anyone out there assist in finding symptoms of Anemia in Infants? My daughter was recently diagnosed by a doctor as being weak and pale. My daughter was neither pale nor weak. She was just sleeping in her stroller prior to the doctor's examination.
I sincerely question this doctor's experience since my daughter is very healthy and active. Another doctor gave my daughter a clean bill of health just two days prior.
So I am curious as to the symptoms of anemia in 18 month old infants. Please help.

Here is WebMd's article on the basics of anemia: http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/understanding-anemia-basics
Did your doctor do a blood test on your daughter? It's usually a small prick and they test the blood to check the levels of iron in her. Glancing at a person is not a reliable way to diagnosis someone with anemia. I would ask to see her chart to see the iron levels. Good luck!
