    this really does my head in when teh health visitors and doctors put so much pressure on parents re the weights of their babies...as long as your baby is healthy and gaining some weight (as in not loosing every week) they are drinking they are smiling and happy then thats fine...we are all so different but still work the same!!

    ~They have a go at me about being too big, they have a go at my friend about being too small so how dare the nurse who looks like a pudding bowl even comment~

    Id rather be smaller than so big, my friend says shed rather be bigger than smaller..wel never win willwe?? As long as our babies are feeding, burping, pooing and weeing who the hell are they to say they are not NORMAL!!!

    good luck and dont get too worried

    ah tezzy dont worry about what they say, why do they put so much pressure on you?
    every baby is different, just like there are grownups that weigh different amounts and are different heights so there are babies like this too. as long as it isnt endangering her health. they really should not upset you like this- u know when i go to the baby clinic here ( its called a drop of milk lol weird.. anyway..) i just most of the time ignore what they said. one nurse told me not to rock the baby its bad for him.. good grief!

    That is wonderful!!! And to let you know, my best friend's daughter was ALWAYS in the 2% and she is a healthy happy 6 year old, just a skinny little thing, but fine none the less. Don't let those dr.s worry you if you know nothing is wrong with your girl!
