Thanks hot tea. I didnt even realize you had had your little man. Congrats.
I Think im just so used to Ava being so big( shes been between 75th and 90th her whole 1 year of life) thats its so new to me to have a small one. Ava was 13 pounds at 2 months and only 7lb 12 oz a birth lol.
My only real concern I think is that she is gaining a tad bit under the minimum a day. I may go and get her weighted again in a week just to see how its going. If its still to low ill book a doctors appointment.
I think she sounds perfect! Some of the percentile business is a bit nonsense IMHO.
Benjamin was born at 39 weeks and 3 days. He weighed 7 lbs, 5 oz. At his 2 month, he was just over 10 lbs. Today, at almost 11 months, he is 21 lbs. It's funny because everyone comments on "how big he is" but he's 50th percentile for weight.
You're doing great. If baby is happy and healthy, then that's all that matters!
My son was born 6 lb 9 oz. At the 2 month check up, he weighed 10 lb 9 oz.
There's the CDC chart and the WHO chart. They say to follow the WHO chart but that meant he was in the 10th percentile at the time (and later dropped to the 3rd percentile) for boys. He'd be in the 23rd percentile with the CDC chart according to my phone app.
I do let the percentiles get to me. Couldn't help it. He was only gaining half a lb a month the first 6 months. The last 2 months he seemed to have gained a lot more. In between 6 and 7 months, he gained 1.5 lb.
Maybe our babies are just a bit slow but growing steadily while the average baby slows down in gains after a while.
I think she is just fine They say that they should double their birth weight by six months. So if she is already 10 lbs and she is only 2 months she has 4 more months to double I think she will double by then. I am also worried about my 3 month old's wt to but not because I think he is to small I KNOW he is to BIG . He is 3 months and he weigh's 19.6 lbs he was 9.9 at birth The dr tells me he is fine but IDK still not sure .
