My daughter will be 7 mo in a few days and I've noticed the past four to six weeks that she's really chubbed up a lot. She was previously in the 70th to 80th percentiles for both length and weight. At her most recent appointment, she was 24 inches and change and 18 pounds and a few ounces (don't recall the exact numbers off hand), but that put her in something like the 45th percentile for length while her weight percentile stayed relatively high.
I send about 12 ounces with her to daycare each day. My husband usually picks her up and gives her a bottle before I get home from work, but I realized he was giving her about 5 ounces. Despite this, she usually stops at about 4 ounces.
She has started eating some solids, but she actually takes in very little. Only the past week have we found a few foods that she seems to like and won't spit out.
Her pediatrician didn't seem concerned about the new height/weight discrepancy, but I'm worried if I should be. Is this just a normal fluctuation, or should I be concerned, or should we feed her less?
