Has anyone else's punkin experienced a drop in growth percentile?

My daughter has always, since early infancy, charted at around the 40th percentile for both weight and height. When I took her in for her 2year well check she had dropped to 15th percentile weight and 8th percentile for height. Her ped. wants us to come back in in a month for a recheck. Has this happened to anyone else's tot? Thanks!

I don't recall if my son dropped that drastically but he had always been around 30% for weight when he was a baby, now at 6 1/2 he's 9th percentile which is up from his last check up which was the 3rd %. Kids have a tendency to slow down on the charts when they hit a certain age, it's a lot harder to get a toddler to sit down for a meal when they become mobile. I don't think there is anything wrong with your doctor looking into it but I wouldn't become overly concerned just yet.
