Should I be concerned?

My dd is now going on 14 mos. and has only gained about 2 ounces since she was 9 mos. old. People have been telling me that she's now more active and that's part of the reason why she's not gaining, but I'm not totally convinced. She eats well, but she's just not gaining. Anyone have a dd or ds that did the same thing? I guess I'm not up on when growth spurts happen, too...

Any advice/help is appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Should I be concerned?

my dd only gained a little less than a pound (can't remember the exact figures - went from around 19+ lbs to 20-1) in about the same time frame (started walking, etc.) and the ped didn't seem concerned about it.

usually they say that if your child seems to be developing fine - hitting milestones, seems happy, etc. - not to worry about it too much.

Nate has only gained 4 oz from 9 mos to a year. I'm not totally sure what he weighs now, but it feels about the same.

Was your dd really chubby to start? Nate was 24lb even @ 9 mos and 24/4 @ a year.

DJ was 19 pounds around 6 months but didn't hit 20 pounds till after 13 months. He went from crawling to walking to running in about 30 seconds flat and man does that kid burn some calories! His eating was fine, he was hitting all his milestones early, and he was generally healthy and happy so his ped wasn't worried at all.

Re: Should I be concerned?

Delaney just keeps getting taller and taller and everytime we go to the doctors I swear she has gained several pounds and it is always just a few ounces. It amazes me. She is like Stretch Armstrong! I am a big believer in the theory that a healthy, happy child that is meeting milestones is probably fine. If anything it seems like peds can be overly concerned when it comes to low weight gain so if yours seems to think it is OK then I wouldn't worry.

I also belive in mommy's intuition though, so if you really feel that something isn't right, get another doc's opinion
