Hi All - I posted about 4 months ago on my 6 months' old growth. She is now 10 months and we are still have FTT issues.
At first, weight seemed to be the issue, but after 4 months, I'm not so concerned about it.
What is beginning to become more concerning with the ped and I is her rate of growth. We've had maybe a 3/4 of an inch since she was 2 months old. She is 10 months old.
Now I say maybe, she has been shrunk and stretched so many times, but the last "official" measurement was 25 1/4". I say official because this was done on a length board at the endocrinologist.
Here are her weight/length/HC and dates:
Born 11-2-07: 7lb 3 oz, 20" length, 13" HC
1 month 11-30-07: 9lb 5 oz, 21.5" length, 13.5" HC
2 month 01-07-08: 11lb 11oz, 24.5" length, 16.5" HC
4 month 03-03-08: 13lb 4oz, 24.5" length, 16.5" HC
6 month 04-25-08: 13lb 4oz, 24.5" length, 16.5" HC
7 month 05-28-08: 14lb 3oz, 25" length, 16.5" HC
9 month 07-21-08: 15lb 7oz, 25.25" length, 16.5" HC
10 month 09-02-08: 15lb 4oz, 25.25" lenght, 16.5" HC
Her height is horizontal crossing all percentiles and off the growth charts - WHO for breastfed babies & CDC charts.
Secondly, can anyone tell me anything about head circumference growth? The doc said that her soft spot is beginning to close which means her bones are fusing. If her her head isn't growing and the bones fuse, could this mean her brain won't grow?
Now for our nursing schedule (not really a schedule, she is still on demand but this is a typical day):
6:30 am wake & nurse both side back down for nap until 7:30
9:00 am nurse both sides & 1/2 cup cheerios or yogurt
12:30-1 nurse both sides
2:00 nurse both sides nap for about 1.5 hours
4:00 nurse both sides
6:00 dinner - whatever we are eating about 1 cup food; nurse both sides
8:00 nurse both sides
10:30 pump for 20 minutes (get about 1 oz out of both)
She will wake occasionally in the middle of the night and nurse both sides. I'm at a loss.
