Re: Please make me feel better(well baby visit related)

Don't worry about it, babies don't grow according to a chart. My son didn't gain a single oz from the time he was 2 months until he was 8 months old. He weighed exactly the same at his 8 months that he did at his 2 month checkup. He went from the 95th percentile in weight to the 5th percentile. He always stayed in the 75-80th percentile in height. My ped didn't think it was an issue at all. He had bad reflux and he just couldn't keep enough food in his belly to gain weight. My ped was fine with it as long as he didn't lose weight. He is a happy and healthy almost 3 year old now.
