Some are just tiny! My son was huge at birth and isn't anymore but his is due to his reflux.

I think he would have been tiny by his first b-day anyways my daughter is on the small side but the problem with his is how fast he dropped down the charts but we know why he did though.

my youngest daughter is small for her age. she has always been small. she is almost 3 years old and still fits in most 24 pants and shirts comfortably. she usually stays on the bottom line on her growth chart the doc has. I figured she will grow when she is ready, she eats all the time and is constently up and going so the doc thinks it has something to do with her matabalism.

i'm actually a little confused. when we took her Jan 25th to her doc for her being sick the nurse said she was 15.5 lbs. the doc said 15 1/2 lbs. she had a WIC appt today and they said she's 15.3 so how much is that?

scales measure differently. nurse said 15.5, 15 1/2 would be 15.8 and then wic is 15.3 so between 3 and 5 oz.

She'll be 9 months on the 24th. she kept dropping on the charts, 6 months she went up a bit but WIC has her at 4% for weight/height ratio.

no problem. 16oz in a lb. so if next time they give you fractions that should help.
