All I want for Christmas is a fat baby!
Ava had her 4 month check-up yesterday and now I hate yet another doctor! I had several things to discuss with him, but as soon as her growth was charted all my concerns were dead in the water. (Forget that she's met all her milestones and the doctor himself said she looked very healthy)
length: 23 1/4 in. (20%tile)
head circ: 15 1/2 in. (15%tile)
weight: 9lbs. 5 oz. (somewhere far below the bottom of the growth chart)
Now we get to spend the next month until she sees the doctor again obsessing how to make her gain weight. He would like to see her hugging the bottom of the growth curve again. Well I looked that up and that's about 3 1/2 pounds in the next month! Good luck with that! ( she's only gained 3 since she was born) Someone please tell me they've had a smaller healthy child. It will make me feel so much better!
Now for proof that we know how to make fat babies. Check out bubba on the right. Now that is one cute little chub!
