Re: Dropping percentiles
I wouldn't worry. I know having your kid go from the 90th percentile to the 20th can make you really anxious, but it seems to be quite common for a baby to follow one growth trajectory inside the womb and a very different one outside the womb. For instance, my first kid was born teeny-tiny, in the 20th percentile for just about everything. By 5 months she was off the top of the chart for height and at the top for weight. No-one was concerned because no-one ever gets concerned about a fat baby (:rolleyes) but really it just goes to show how typical it is for a kid to cross percentiles during he first year.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
