Hello. My daughter was born on Dec 14 and she currently (a few days ago) weights at 19.5 lbs, 29.3 inches tall and her head circumstance is 17.5 inches. I am pretty confident she's doing great with her achivements but I sometimes wonder about her height, etc. I know in my mind she's normal but it makes me mad when I get family (even strangers) say that she is kind of small for her age. It was even worse when she was younger. I got so mad at times I would cry because of the comments. I am a pretty outspoken person at times so there was a lot of insults back. My family (on my fiances side) were the worse.(kind of still are) when it came to the comments they would say. My fiance has 2 sister and both nurses and they are quite tall, compared to me (5'1) and their children are taller(of course.) Currently they haven't said anything mean yet but if they do I feel I may flip. What should I do? I do get along with them for the most part but the comments they have said in the past are still there and any little thing now will probably set me off. I don't want to visit them if I feel insecure and almost waiting for someone to say something, thats not what I want and I don't want to be a bad influence to my daughter to act aggressively to someone when it comes to the worse.
