Quoting Jennybananna:" Small kids still follow a growth curve though. They might gain slow but they are consistent in their ... [snip!] ... off their curve (say going from 70% percentile to 10%) It can cause them to also have delays meeting developmental milestones."hmm interesting. my daughter fell from like the 65% percentile when born to the 35th at around 4-6 months of age and then fell to under the 1st percentile but now she does consistently gain weight although she's still under the 1st percentile. does it take some months for the growth curve pattern to be established?

[snip!] ... weight although she's still under the 1st percentile. does it take some months for the growth curve pattern to be established?"Im not 100% on that. I know they can drop some once they become mobile (crawling, walking, ect) I think there are a lot of factors that go into a doctor saying a baby is FTT. I just know what I have read about online. Although my pedi did say anything more than a 20% drop or increases is cause for a concern to her.
Quoting SpaceCowgirl:" How old is she and how much does she weigh?"at 25 months she weighed 21 lbs. she's perfectly healthy now and right on track on her milestones and loves eating now and such. But when she was younger I had a lot of concerns because of her lack of weight gain and she wasn't meeting some milestones (she couldn't hold her head up until she was like 4 months old) and was spitting up massively all the time, but her dr. didn't worry. I guess retrospectively I maybe should have gotten a second opinion, but she is a super happy and healthy girl now.
