weight check

ever get so stressed out about your child's weight check? Well I do, because my NP seems to only focus on the negative and makes me feel bad because while James is gaining weight and going up in weight he is going down in percent, and that's all she focuses on. Today we have a weight check, and I'm already stressed about it.

    those percentages are nothing but bull. As long as he is healthy there's no reason to stress. My oldest has never 'been on the charts'. She is tiny. My three youngest are big boned kids and measure high off the charts. But they are healthy.

      I use to stress out about it too with my smaller babies (who by the way have stayed small in stature and weight for the most part). My husband was very small and short for the longest time. He didn't grow to almost 6'1 until he was 17-18 and he only weighed 145 when we got married. So he would always tell me our smaller babies were just taking after him, they were happy, gaining weight, just not in percentile and were fine. I wasted so much time worrying. As long as baby is happy, content and gaining, there shouldn't be any concerns.
