Re: ABove the 50% babies.. what gives?

it takes babies of all sizes to make the stupid 'chart'!! the percentiles just tell you how your child relates to the general population of kids their age. if your dc is on the 25%ile, that means that he is bigger (height or weight, depending on the chart) than 25% of the kids his age. if you have a kid in the 95%ile, he is bigger than 95% of the kids his age. it doesn't indicate health per say, but if you see a pattern of jumping around on the 'chart', that might be something to look into. you want to see the baby following his own curve.
