Re: 9 month check up--does anyone else's dc go under the charts for weight???

My dd who just turned 2 has always been tiny... from 6 months to 18 months she gained less than a pound even though she eats quite well, she still only weighs 22 pounds, and is about 2 1/2 foot tall.

Every baby is different in how they grow... here is the perfect example... keep in mind how tiny my dd is.. my ds who turned 1 the day after dd turned 2 weighs 30 pounds, and is 33" tall... he is 2 inches taller than my 2yo, and 8 pounds heavier... my dd is below.. yes below the lowest lines on the growth charts... my ds is way way way above the highest lines on the growth chart. They both have the same 2 parents, we are both short and were skinny as kids, but you have to remember that babies are not our clones, but our blend
