My DS had his 9-month checkup last Thursday. He remains in the 85% percentile for height (29.25 inches!) and 60% percentile for head circumference. But - he has dropped from the 25% to the 5% percentile for weight - he is only 16 lb, 11 oz! He is crawling, pulling himself up to standing, and otherwise doing everything he "is supposed to" at this age...it is just that he is so darn skinny. Should I be worried? The clinician said that "he's doing great", but that I should bring him back in another six weeks for a weight check and that I should increase his solids intake from 3 times/day to 4 times. I have upped his solids and he seems ok with it. Any thoughts on this? I know I should not worry, but I am losing confidence looking at such a low percentile. I am wondering if he is taking after my body type - I am a small-boned Filipina; 5"6 and 100 lbs. I get slack from the IL's too, since my nephew is 2 yrs old and 35 lbs...the implication is that I am starving DS or something. Help! TIA!
