Quoting Michelle:



Caleb was born on May 7th, he is 28 inches and 17lbs 15oz!  The doctor is concerned that he is underweight.... she wants to send him to a pediatrician.






My eldest daughter was always on the 98th percentile for hight and 25the percentile for weight as a baby (as per charts in red book). The health visitor said I should see the doctor but they seem to take no notice of what the parents are like. I'm 5ft11 and under 9stone and she is just a mini me so can see nothing wrong as she eat well and seemed to follow the weight gain curve. I believe it is just procedure to refer when there is such a difference between weight and height.

My daughter was born May 21st. At our 9 month visit, she weighed 23 lbs and she is 31 inches long. She is a big girl but tall. The doc told us she's at the 95th%ile for height and weight. She is wearing 12 to 18 months clothes!

SERIOSULY,  i cannot believe some of these doctors so concerned about weight?!?!  Is your baby eating well?  does you baby keep his/her food down?  does your baby consistantly gain weight at each checkup?  every baby grows at a different rate, and i believe heredity has a LOT to do with weight and height!  



I am a skinny mini and I can eat the worst junk food ever and I still weigh only 110... dont be mad..  i can't help it.. lol... but my boy is the same way....



my husband and i are also both on the short side, but my baby is 28inches which seems to be about average... he does have an uncle who is very tall tho, in the 6f 2in range... so



weight wise he was 17.4 lbs at his 9 month checkup so i really think he has my genes there... my mother is also very thin and petite (we always could share clothes all my teen and adult life)



but i dont see how 15-17 lbs is that bad as long as your child gets nutrition and looks healthy....

My son was born May 10, he is 28 inches and just under 19 pounds.  The doctors say he is in the lower percentile, but he is right where they expected--my husband and I are both on the short/petite side.  Our sons weight was 6pounds 4ounces at birth but dropped down to 5 pounds a few days after birth due to complications.  So his docs are pleased with where he is now!!!

Lucas born May 15th, as of today he's 16 lbs 10 oz and 26 1/4 inches.  That's what I get for starting him on solids at 6 months and have yet to get him to stage 3 food..he vomits when he feels the chunks in his mouth! LOL

My daughter is VERY big! She was born May 23rd and went for her nine month checkup. She was 26 lbs, and 33 inches long! I guess I better turn her into a basketbal player or something! She was only 8 lbs and 20 1/2 inches at birth, but she's growing soo fast!

Babies do grow differently. My pediatrician is very thorough & says Kinsley is very healthy. She is just a little petite, like momma. She is satisfied with food and in fact when I try to give her a little more she turns her head & won't open her mouth which is a sure sign of her being full. If you're concerned about your baby's weight then ask the pediatrician. Trust me, if he felt there was a problem then he would address it.

Natalie was born May 30, 2008 and weighed 6 lbs 14oz and was 19" long. At her 9mth check-up she weighed 18 lbs and was 28" long. The doctor said she would be tall and skinny. She must get that from my husband's side of the family.

Hmmm...is caleb a good eater? We're in the same boat, except for my doctor isn't sending me to a pediatrician yet...she just said to increase her solid food intake and come back in a month! Her father is tall and skinny so we just think she will take after him!





My pickle is small as well. Her birthday is May 21, and her weight is 14lbs 15 ozs. We were sent to a pediatrician who was quite concerned and wanted me to give formula and pretty much give up bf. She eats quite healthy and lots of food, so I kept track of what I was feeding her for a week. We saw another pediatrician the next week and he looked over her intake and said he's not concerned. Every baby grows differently. You know what and how much they are eating. Hope these little babes put on a little more chunk!! lol.

Myli was checked last week. She was 17lbs 3 oz and 27.25" long. She was 6 lbs 14 oz at birth and only 18.5 inches long. I'm wondering why everyone else's dr said their child was underweight when mine says she's right in the middle of the curve...interesting

Im confused- dont you already see a pediatrician?? my kids always see a pediatrician. Charlotte is only 15.5lbs, but she eats well. She is just long and skinny. But she was 8/4 when she was born, so maybe I just ate too much, haha.
