My dd just had her 1 year checkup. She is 25th percentile for height and weight. My ped was totally fine with this, but those numbers shocked me because my sons never had a percentil below 70%. I guess it really does not matter...but do you think my daughter is smaller because she has been almost exclusively breastfed for a year? She still eats very little solid food. Again, my ped said her weight and height were great, he had no worries. I guess I am just concerned that she eats so little solids. He said she could have whatever solids she wanted, but she doesn't want them at all!
I was only able to nurse my sons to 6 months or so. They were eating a ton more solids at this age. One of my boys is a little on the heavy side, the other is tall and quite thin. Is any of this connected or does it just depend on each child's genetics? Should I be pushing more solids on her? Nursing her less? I hate to do that, she LOVES to nurse. I guess I am just a little concerned that she is so much smaller than the boys.
Her head circumference was in the 90th percentile!!
