kleigh what was her percentile when she was there last? If she fell off her curve you may want to call just so that if they have a suggestion you can implement it and have 2 weeks to see how it goes over and re discuss at her 4 months.
Anecdote and kind of funny that this was brought up today, one of my good friends has a daughter about six weeks ahead of ours that was barely hitting 10 pounds by four months. In her case the Pedi had them start solids just to see if that would help her from continuously falling off her curve. It did tremendously. Maybe that's her next step?

cheshie6 That's so frustrating! I understand wanting to be prepared. I hope they can get you in soon.
kleigh Fwiw, the percentiles don't really matter unless they fall off a ton and even then it's usually ok if she's meeting milestones. Someone is going to be in the 5th percentile. Anecdotally, this is our story: Lillian was 8 days late and weighed 8lb 2oz. She ate well and grew at a decent pace. She wasn't huge, but she was ok. At 4 months she was 12lb 9oz and 24" tall. At 6 months she fell off her curve and was 13lb 14oz. At 9 months she was 14lb 14oz and at 1 year she was 16lb 5oz and 27.25" tall. She's remained in the 2-5%, occasionally going up to 10%. At 2.25 years she's still way on the small side. Her dr was never once concerned about her despite going from ~50% to 5%. That was because she -ate really well -slept enough despite waking a lot -met all her milestones on time or early -was a very happy baby in general and had no other issues It's clear now that she's just a petite girl. We get lots of comments on how physically adept she is and about her language/creativity. I no longer worry. Plus, her height potential based on her 2yr height is about 5'2 which isn't short for our family.
That said, I'd definitely talk to your dr about it. I constantly was worried about it and asked at every well check. And of course AV isn't Lillian. But I did want to tell you our story to let you know that it isn't always that something is wrong. So far, Lilah is following Lillian's pattern (she's been 3oz more on average) except for height (Lilah is about an inch taller right now). I have been nervous about Lilah's weight gain, but keep trying to remember to look at the whole picture.
sophiegrace She was 10th percentile at 2 months so she fell slightly although she eats better now than she did then, still not a lot IMO but more and better. I love your idea of calling the pedi so that if they want me to implement something we can see if it works over the next few weeks before the 4 month appt. I'm going to call once H gets home if they are still open - if not I'll have to call in the morning. And interestingly she is the one I think would be ready for solids first.
goldenlove3 and jubilantsquirrel Like I said to Sophiegrace I'll call and just ask if he thinks he wants to see her beforehand in case he wants me to try something over the next few weeks. Thanks you guys!
ClassyMrsA Thank you thank you thank you! Anecdotes DO make me feel better because if I can see that there's even one example of something then I am always able to go "well it could be like that". You're right, she might just be petite - it's possible, I think my worry stems from them being twins and knowing that growth could be an issue and then to see Alec so much bigger (so much for not comparing, it's just really hard to when they both sit right here at the same time).. So she is VERY alert and smart and I would guess on time developmentally (if not ahead in some regards). That based on my family and friends who comment about how advanced she is at 3.5 months - assuming they compare to all their kids and others they've seen. She doesn't do some things (like she hates tummy time) but other things she amazes us at - she can pull herself up and sit nearly unassisted and if you hold her up she puts her feet down and "walks" putting one in front of the other repeatedly. She gets bored at toys easily because it's like she masters them within a day. She responds amazingly to sounds and sights and "talks" a TON - in fact on three seperate occasions (1) me and H, (2) my neighbor (watches them while I'm at work), and (3) my mom have all heard her say what we think is her saying "hi" - we say this to them all the time "hi" and "I love you" !!! Now most likely coincidence, but we all heard this happen on different occasions. At the very least she's reproducing a sound that sounds the same each time she does it. So I guess developmentally I probably have no reason to worry.. And you're right, someone has to be 2nd or 5th percentile - it just seems odd bc me and H are not that tiny. Height she was at 90th percentile at her 2 month.
Ugh, I'm so sorry cheshie6 , that stinks. We had to do this test (I'm assuming it's the same thing...ABR?) with Bradley when he was about 2--they had to put him under anesthesia b/c they can't trust a toddler to sleep and/or be still enough to conduct it. The waiting and wondering was killer, so you have my sympathies. Hopefully you can get in to see the other audiologist sooner. (in our case, it turned out his hearing was just fine...he basically was just ignoring me on occasion
Lunch was awesome! It was much like what I'd imagine an N'16 GTG would be like. Except we'd have more drinks.
When I got home DS was a mess and kept grabbing his left ear. So I ended up making an impromptu trip to the pediatrician during the time I was hoping to nap. Turns out he is completely fine (i.e., no ear infection) other than the slight congestion and cough he's had the past few days. Sigh.

Sounds awesome dashook! With my mom's group we sometimes go places. It's pretty crazy when you've got likely 10 kids 4 and under, but I almost always have a good time. Tomorrow we are having a pj potluck.
waitwhat That's awesome that you set up your friends on match. I sometimes help one of my single friends look at guys online. It's fun. Also, I met DH on eHarmony. My mom helped. She likes to say she picked him, even though I picked him. He just was her favorite. Lol.

Hard to keep up with being back and almost a full week of a sick toddler.
Funny pumping story today though..I have an office in a different department to pump in (I sit in a cube), and it's been fine for the past few weeks. Today I go up at 4:30 and unlock the door and there is a guy praying in there! I noticed the light on first and then almost jumped out of my skin when I saw him on the floor, and then profusely apologized for barging in. Apparently he has a key to this office to use for religious reasons, I just had NO idea. Thank God I walked in on him and not the opposite, granted he's seen all my crap out since I have been leaving it out. I will file my annoyance with sharing an office into FWP.
Oh and I had our daycare intake meeting for next week. I was doing totally fine with her starting and then they sprung on me that she wasn't going to be in the class I expected. I held it together when we viewed her new room (despite being sad for another baby with the same name), but then was tearing up for the rest of the tour and then totally cried. She's now in the class with the teachers I know. No f's given. I'm sure the other teachers are wonderful, but I was not mentally prepared for that and I want the same teacher j had.

Finding someone in a room I expected to be empty would probably send me into a full panic attack tallblonde! A warning would have been nice. Hugs on the daycare situation, I'm glad she's in the room you wanted her in with the teacher you know. No shame in whatever keeps you feeling better about the situation while at work. Hope J is feeling better soon!
Re diaper sizes: Lillian wears size 4... She only weighs 23.5 lbs though. Lilah will most likely be in 2s for a while, though I put her in a 4 the other day. We had a blowout while out and her diapers were in the car so Lillian's 4 was all I had on me. It wasn't too bad surprisingly.
The diaper weight ranges seem to overlap quite a bit once they get bigger. We were in size 5 for over a year. Still in size 1 over here for my string bean, but bought some 2 since she has had some blowouts recently, but no leaks.

My baby is molting. Her hair ranges from new peach fuzz that's growing in to 3-4 inch strands on the top and right side. I wonder what color the new hair is going to be. So far her coloring has shocked me, I thought for sure she'd have my husband's tan and dark eyes/black hair. I think I'm noticing a tint of brown in her eyes lately. Amazing how all of this works.
I bit the bullet last night and changed our subscribe and save settimgs to deliver size 5's for DS. The size 4's go up to 37 lbs and he's 29 so I just assumed we'd be in them until he was potty trained. But then yesterday's conversation had me looking up diaper sizes and I realized that size 5 starts at 27 lbs! This could finally be the solution to him waking up every morning soaked in pee lol
