Looks good to me! You're looking one pound a month. You have that.

You've got 1 and a half pounds over lowest weight in a month's time. She's ahead of expectations. How the heck much do they think she weigh?!? You are right; her weight is fine. Better than fine.

Her weight is absolutely perfect! No worries and more importantly, NO SUPPLEMENTS! :-)

No! We look for one pound per month from lowest weight after birth. You've got that! Pediatrician is using formula fed standards.

Thank everyone!

I would change her doctor but unfortunately since we are military I am kinda stuck. :/ the kids doctor just deployed so this new doctor sucks!

Military medicine... ugh. I've seen SO many reports of problems in care, I'd prefer to carry my own insurance.

Just ignore. You don't HAVE to do well checks.
