Thomas and I took Wesley to his 6 month well-baby visit & Daniel to his 3 year check-up Monday. Everything was good developmentally but we did have to endure a conversation about weight, especially for Wesley. It reminded me of a similar situation with Daniel. So, rather than regurgitate the same rant over a different baby, I will refer you to the first spiel that was transferred over to WP from my old blog.
Added point: Daniel was in a low percentile on the growth chart because, according to the doctor, he is the average height of a 5 year old. He is also the average weight of a 3 year old. However, when you average those two together, you get a very low percentile, thus making him below average. The doctor was in full disclosure that this was the flaw with Daniel. So, should we not suspect that something similar might be for Wesley?I truly do like the doctor, but I hate this premise. She acknowledged the skinny mom tall dad fact too, but this still did not stave off a follow up appointment. I am suppose to go back in a month to make sure Wesley is not falling off the chart. I have not yet scheduled that appointment—-and I may not do it at all.
Pop on over to that post and let me know what you think and where your baby falls or fell! I would love to know what others think (again!).
