My daughter just had her first year check up. According to the dr office, she has not grown or gained weight since January. At her 3 month checkup she was in the 75th percentile for her height and weight. At 6 months she was in the 50th percentile. And she hasn't gotten any taller and she has only gained 1/2 a pound since then, which puts her in the 5th percentile for height and below it for weight.
I asked the dr about it and he said that developmentally, she is ahead of the game and that the measurements are not exact because babies are not very still and a full diaper vs an empty one, a stretch leg vs one curled up, etc can make a big difference in the results and not to worry about it.
Do you think I should get a second opinion or as long as she is developing fine, don't worry about her height and weight?

I think as long as she is developing fine and interacting with you fine I wouldn't worry about it, babys all grow in a different way
