Everyone guesses my babies age wrong. She is petite but in the 50th percentile. This really bothers me. I feel like she is too small

Stop comparing your child to other people's children. Problem solved. If she is healthy and growing, that's all that matters.

Yes well the pediatrician says she's perfect size and health wise it's just that it confirms what I have always worried about. I feel like every other baby I see her age looks bigger. It's not about what other people think it's that it creates more worry for me

Why would it bother you? As long as she is healthy, I'm not seeing why it would upset you. She isn't small if she is in the 50th percentile, but so what if she was small? Stop worrying about what other people think.
