I took my baby (she will be 20 months old on Sept. 7th) to a pediatrican (a new one because we just moved cross country). She weighed 24 pounds and was 34 inches tall. She wieghed 8 pounds 3 ounces at birth. She eats like a horse and loves sleep. She is a happy little girl. I am concerned... When the pediatrician broke out the charts and showed me the dot UNDER the chart of where my baby is- I was puzzled and asked " so what percentile does that put her into?" The pediatrican said she didn't make the chart! This has never happened before. She sent for my baby's records from her last pediatrician to compare. But I know my baby was always in the middle of the curve on that chart (even 3 1/2 months ago!)
Has this ever happened to your baby? If so did they know why?

My son was shorter and weighed less than yours at that age. He was always 50th% until recently. He was 22lbs and 33in. If she is steadily growing and gaining...then I wouldn't worry too much.
I found a growth chart. She is in the 26th %
