Should I be concerned? (weight question for toddler)

DH took dd to the ped today as she and I have finally come down with the creeping lung crud :/

According to the ped she's in the 35th percentile for height and 55th for weight. The ped didn't make any comments about it but was concentrating on the sick part of the visit, so..

It's possible I'm just not used to this - both my other kiddos were 99th+ on height and weight at this age. She actually wears the size that matches her age (12-18 months at 15.5 mo old, and room to grow). WITH cd's on yes lol.

Is this just odd to me because of my experiences with the other kids, or should I make an appt with the ped when she's feeling better and get her more thoroughly checked out?

She eats throughout the day (cheerios, fruits, eggs, some of our dinner), nurses, and gets formula. I don't think she's lacking for nutrition but I could be missing something?

Nothing in your post indicates the need to see the ped. She seems really normal to me. All kids are different. If it makes you feel better, my dd was/and is in the 50% for height and 3% for weight.... DS is in the 50% for height and 15% for weight. They are just small. Nothing more to it.
She's just smaller. Don't stress.

I don't see anything to worry about. Each kid is just different. The 50th percentile is average--half of kids are above a half are below. DD wasn't even on the chart for weight for a while-lol!

Nope, I wouldn't worry! They are all different!
