Re: Little peanut
Breastfed babies tend to fall down the percentiles as they become mobile. All the calories that used to get packed on as fat are burned up in motion, instead. It sounds like you have an unusually active little guy, so it isn't that surprising that he's dipped a bit on the charts. Just remember that the charts are only one tool for evaluatng a baby. They are not the final word on a baby's health or growth status. Being small is not the same as being unhealthy- you can have small healthy babies and big, unhealthy ones. Statistically speaking, there are just as many healthy babies in the 11th percentile as their are in the 89th. And you wouldn't worry if your baby was in the 89th percentile, right?
