Shes crawling and beginning to cruise. 4-5 wet diapers a day. Nurses 20ish times a day. Im thinking she still has reflux but no way she'll take meds.
You guys know my kiddos run small but shes smaller then both my other two were at 4mo by .5-1lb!!!
My weirdness starts to think like heart murmurs or things that just cause slow gain.
I know I know I'm psycho just reassure me. Lol

My lo is even littler than my others and my mind takes off on me, too. I've questioned kidney reflux. I asked about celiac disease. But really it just seems she's small. My other dd didn't like the height of beams in gymnastics but maybe I'll try again with this one; she jumps off stools and chairs and slides down the stairs head first.

And looking again, my older dd was exact same weight and length at her 6 month and 9 month. She picked up a little by the 12 but then dropped some weight at 15 months. They freaked and put me through the FTT thing, with endocrinologists and nutritionists. They simply mentioned measuring her for "subtle forms of dwarfism" and my dh was sure they were calling that her diagnosis. After a year of that crap they finally said she was small but healthy, like her parents. Now my youngest is following her tiny footsteps, just a bit tinier.

have you played with your diet at all with that reflux?  Many find that their eating of gluten and sometimes dairy too is what is causing it.

When I went gluten free her weight gain became more consistant.  Still a tiny little thing but the gains stayed on a consistant line.
