I have not posted in a very long time, but this morning I received news that has me so mad. How did your babies do on the growth charts at 1 year? DD is small and has been since birth and I'm ok with that. However, now my dr is making us get measured every month because she is still small. DD is very active and never sits still. She is not one to sit on your lap and snuggle all day. She wants down and is always on the go. For the first year the dr was ok that she was little, but now it's different. We got measured yesterday with a nurse and in a month from her last visit (mind you she had been sick for about a month -month and a half off and on with sinus stuff and wasn't eating as well at her 1 yr) she gained a full pound and an ounce. I was happy with this, but nope my dr called this morning and we go back in June and the dr wants to do lab work! What?? I asked why and the nurse said because the dr wants to see if she is really ok and is just small. She has been small from the beginning. She was 7lb 2oz at birth and was 6lb 8oz at her first dr visit 4 days later. From there she has grown evenly but slowly. She is 16lb 12oz now. And I should add I was a very small baby as well. I know she is little, but she eats everything we eat, plus some. She does still nurse and after nursing eats another 4-5 oz of whole milk. She gets 3 meals a day plus snacks all day in between meals such as Cheerios or fruit in addition to nursing and whole milk. I am so frustrated that they think she needs lab work now. She is so active and if you look at her she has the little baby belly and looks perfectly fine (aside from being little). Why is this an issue now when it was never a problem before? I don't know what else to do. Any though would be appreciated. Thanks!
