  • I can't remember my first son, i think he was around the 50th or something. My little one, he's 4 mos now, and sitting in the 75th. He has his check up next week, so I'll let you know where he falls then. If the dr isn't too worried, I wouldn't be. It's normal for children to grow taller, then wider and back and forth.

  • well my LO was 6lb 6oz when we left the hospital but gained quick. at his 6 month appt he was 17.4 i believe and then like month later we went in bc he was sick and was 20.2 at his 9 month appt on tues he weighed 21.4 so didnt gain a whole lot in the last two months either. i think if ur dr wasnt too worried it'll be fine, just make sure she's eating well. they'll prob just keep an eye on it for the yr appt.

  • Mine had a jump to the 80 percentile from the 15th. doc just watched and at next appointment she was back to the 15th. She'd just happen to have a growth spurt at the time. You'res might be the opposite and about to have a groth spurt and will be back to normal at the next visit.
