Re: 2 Month Visit - Worried about Weight Gain % Drop
Is your LO fed on demand, and does that add up to at least 8 nursing sessions per day? If so, I don't think I'd be concerned about the percentile drop. Some babies are just genetically destined to be slender for their height, and when a baby's weight percentile drops but his height and head circumference stay on track, I don't see a reason to think that there's a problem. There's a phenomenon called "catch-up/catch-down" growth that often happens, in which a baby follows one growth trajectory inside the womb, where mom's body controls growth to a greater extent, and a different growth trajectory outside, where the baby's genetics take over. So it's not uncommon for babies to be born large and then lean out, or to be born small and then chunk up. The fact that you've had 2 babies follow the same growth pattern makes me think that they are just following their genes.
The one thing that concerns me is the reflux angle. Some intensely reflux-y babies learn that eating results in hurting, and start avoiding it.
