Most pedis use the CDC growth chart- this one makes it seem like bf babies are not gaining weight later. The WHO chart which my pedi uses shows better growth rate for bf babies.

Re: Growth Chart Question

Meh. My son started out at the 80th percentile and has been dropping ever since. He's now at about the 45th at almost 9 months. I was worried about it at 6 months, but my peds didn't think it was weird at all. They do use the WHO chart.

Re: Growth Chart Question

My oldest when from being above the 50th percentile from 6 months and prior and continually dropped once she was active and was in the 9 percentile at 1 year and 7 percentile at 18 months. She was just active. Per pedi wasn't concerned though because she gained weight, but was so active she didn't gain as much, and she was healthy and ate healthy. I won't worry about a drop in the percentile of the growth charts as long as your baby is healthy.
