Ok I'd be a little concerned then. I know DD dipped a little in weight gain but her pedi said it was because babies this age are so active. Do they like snacks? I usually pump DD full of avocado. Full of good fats!

the boys and girls growth charts are slightly different. Your daughter is 1 inch longer and 14 oz heavier than mine at the same age.

Weird! I think DD is just going to be a short girl I'm 5'0 so it's not like I thought she was going to be big.

I just plugged her stuff in and it said she was at 25 for height and 10 for weight so maybe my doctor put it in wrong today. She is bigger than your daughter.

Like I said, don't trust the ones on the internet. The doctor follows your child's own growth chart.

I love them! That makes me sad. Do they like sweet potatoes? My mom says she used to feed those to me hoping it would help me gain weight cause they're so starchy

this is the one they use. I'm getting ready to grad from RN school and it is the same ones that we use and the same one that the hospital that I done my clinical rotations at used on the L&D floor so I know these are legitimate.

My daughter weighed right around that at 9 months old. at 2 she still only weighed 21 lbs and she was 8 lbs when she was born so not a tiny baby. If they are healthy otherwise, I would not be concerned with them being tiny-it never caused any issues for my daughter.

Oh. Not the ones used here because it said she would be in the 10th percentile, but she's actually in the 25th. Also when they enter the weight and height in itoes with all the other previous height and weigh ins, and thats how they get.the percentile. I wouldn't be worry though. My daughter was always smaller too and they were never concerned. And twins are generally smaller.
