Re: Small babies

Is your ped concerned? I wouldn't be worried if your DD has been steadily gaining weight and following her own growth curve. Even if her growth curve is off the chart, usually there isn't a concern unless there's a sharp drop in weight gain. Also take into consideration whether you and DH are small in stature.

DD started out at 15th percentile at birth and levelled out at 5th percentile. She was 18 lbs at 12 months and I think a little over 19 lbs at 15 months. Ped hasn't been concerned at all. Her words were that, "She'll be petite like her mama".

Labels? I don't use labels. I can't even get my label maker to work.
