OK, so my DS2 is little. I'm little (5'2"), my husband is pretty tall (5'10") but there are shorter men on both sides of the family.
The reason that I am writing is that at DS 18mo check up he had hardly gained any weight since turning 1. Just about 1.5 lbs. But he grew 3 inches.
He is talking up a storm, our ped was impressed and said he was at a 2yo level already. But she seemed a little concerned about his weight and mentioned that we might have to look into it if he hadn't gained better by his 2yo check up. He is active (very!) and happy. He started walking at 9 months and hasn't stopped for a minute. He mostly runs every where now!
I know he is not as little as some babies but I'm wondering if I should be concerned that his weight has leveled out some even though his height is gaining. It seems to me that means that he is OK b/c he not only gained a little but also grew a pretty good amount and kept his weight through the height growth kwim?
He's a picky eater in that he eats more some days than others. I bf him on demand still which is 3 to 4 times a day and all night but my milk has decreased over time for some reason. Especially since he had Hand Foot and Mouth last week and went on a 3 day strike. My breasts don't get full and I don't feel much let down or hear gulping.
So, to try and summarize my babble, is there reason to be concerned if he's good developmentally and grew 3in. in 6 months? I hate those darn charts that make us second guess this stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
