We had a WIC appointment yesterday and they weighed and checked my daughter's height. They told us that she's in the 40th percentile for her height which is fine but that she's too big for her size. We just took her to the doctor a few weeks ago and they told us that she's smaller than most children her age, but that's not a bad thing because she's healthy small. Now the WIC nutritionist is telling us that she's gaining weight too fast and we need to slow down on what we feed her. My daughter doesn't eat a lot and when she does it, it's healthy. Very rarely do we eat anything that's considered "junk" or "unhealthy". Of course I'm only going to go by what her pediatrician says, but just wanted to see if the WIC I go to is the same as everyone else's.
