Hello everyone- DD just turned 9 months so i am switching over to this board.
She has always been in the 90th percentile for height and 70th for weight. At her 9 month appointment today she had suddenly dropped to the 50th for height and 40th for weight. The doctor didnt seem too concerned, she said when they get more active their growth can slow down. DD is a maniac, crawling as fast as she can, cruising all day, and even took 4 steps on her own yesterday. She is EBF and nurses 5 times and day and once overnight (sometimes twice), and eats 2-3 solids meals a day.
Have any of you noticed a drop in percentiles around 9 months? Thanks!
I should add that she is by no means skinny...plenty of chunky rolls to squeeze
