1194973 tn?1385503904 When it comes to percentiles, is it bad for a child to be in the lower end? Kylie is showing to be in the 5th percentile and lower for height, weight and head circumference. I'm really nervous about if she is growing properly or not. At birth she was in the 50-75th for height and 25th for weight. Should it drop like that? The doctor didn't seem worried, but I'm not sure. She is 8 pounds 4 ounces and was 6 pounds 12 ounces at birth. She's still 20 inches long.
Avatar n tn From your measurements, her weight is just below the 5th percentile and her height is 15th percentile for her age. Blood-work will show if she has a deficiency of any type, however, if you are comparing your daughter to your niece there are different genetics in play here due to two different families. Plus your daughter did have issues as an infant that may have set her back a bit.
Avatar n tn Renee, thank you very much for your reply. I'm following up on the question regarding my daughter who is just under the 5th percentile for weight and 5th percentile for height. She just doesn't seem to like the formula that much (we starting supplementing with formula about a month ago). We try to give her formula before sending her to day care, but she'll usually only eat 2 ounces of it.
676912 tn?1332812551 s always been a monster, he was never below 90% for height and always above 50% for weight, mostly above 95% and 75% for height/weight. Aubryana is right now the same size Elijah was at 4 months and she's almost 9 months. Do I just have a little baby girl, or is she gonna start growing more as she gets older? I'm so used to Mr Giant.
Avatar f tn Her weight is on the 90th percentile; however, her height is below the 3rd percentile for her age. She has a very small stature so in turn her weight appears very high. Her needs increase as she grows and then levels off after she stops growing (after 18 years old). For a 4-6 year old they need approximately 1700-1800 calories a day. If you are concerned about her weight then it is recommended to increase children's physical activities.
Avatar f tn I replotted his measurements and you are correct his height is at 75th percentile and his weight is between the 10-25th percentile which indicates his is normal for his age. He is not underweight. If you are still concerned, then suggest the above recommendations.
Avatar n tn His weight is between the 10-5th percentile and his height is just below the 5th percentile for his age. He is not underweight (he is still in the normal range of the Growth Chart) and his height maybe due to genetics. Are there males in the family that have small stature? Based on his weight / age, he should be consuming approximately 1800 calories per day as recommended the following: Fruits (limit fruit juices) = 1.5 cups; Vegetables 2.
Avatar f tn His weight just below the 75th percentile and his height is below the 5th percentile for his age. Most children appetite decrease when they are not feeling well. Suggest feeding him 5-6 small frequent meals which may help increase his intake. If you are still concerned suggest having him checked at his Doctor.
10947 tn?1281404252 re pleased to announce two new applications for your Baby Pages - the Height Percentile Chart and the Weight Percentile Chart. Both charts are available from your Baby Page. Just click the Settings button in the upper right (it looks like gears) and add the two applications. Both apps use the data in your Baby Tracker, so if you already have data entered, your chart will automatically display it.
Avatar f tn His weight is just below the 25th percentile and his height is between the 75-90th percentile for his age. That indicates he is normal for his age. Every child is different even in the same family. Suggest going to an Allergist to determine if he has an allergy to milk protein or not so you can feed him the proper foods. If there in milk products in Aptamil, then switch to an infant formula without milk products.
Avatar n tn At 13, most teenagers are well into puberty and may be in the middle of or about to embark on growth spurts. Their height and weight may go through many changes in their teen years. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the average height for a 13-year-old girl is 5'1 3/4". Girls' normal height can range from 4'11 1/4" at the 10th percentile to 5' 5 3/4" at the 90th percentile.
Avatar n tn His weight is on the 25th percentile and his height is between the 90-95th percentile which indicates he is normal for his age. At 3months it is recommended to only start with infant rice cereal (mixed with breast milk). Juices are not recommended until 6-8 months old and orange juice not until a year old to prevent allergy to citrus. Infant Cereal (1-2 Tbsp) 2 feedings a day. Stay with breast feeding as his main source of nutrition.
Avatar m tn Your son's weight and height is in the 25 percentile for his age. He is still in the percentile ranges, which is good. It is challenging to try to provide all the needed nutrients and adhere to the foods he is allowed. Rice milk does not have as many nutrients as regular or soy milk but it helps when children are multi-allergic as your son is. You can make milkshakes with rice milk and frozen fruit to help him gain weight and have a calcium source.
Avatar n tn His weight is just above the 5th percentile and his height is on the 10th percentile for his age. His is within the growth chart which indicates he is normal for his age. He is going into puberty and will be growing. Males can grow until the early 20's. Genetics plays a part in stature. Are the males in the family on the smaller side?
Avatar f tn My sons weight was in the 10th percentile and I went to the doctor from the time he was 10 months old for that and his emotional coping problems. I thought they must somehow be related, but was told no. Because he didn't show classic symptoms we didn't discover his milk allergy until 5 1/2 years old! (Almost off the top off the chart in the test result).
676912 tn?1332812551 ll just say 20lbs) and she was 26 3/4 inches long. 95% in weight and 80% for height!! DH and I are both short 5'8 and 5'3 and we are little, so we are not sure where the height and weight are coming from, lol!!
Avatar f tn All his blood tests are normal. He is below the 3rd percentile growth curve in height and weight. He was a vaginal delivery and not premature. Iā€™m wondering if any of you had a child like this and whether that child ended up growing well later on in his or her teenage years. Thanks very much!
Avatar f tn I personally plan on keeping my daughter rear facing until she hits the height and weight max for the seat (in rear facing position), even if that means she's 5 years old.
Avatar n tn Her weight is below the 5th percentile and her height is just below the 25th percentile for her age. Have you pumped to check your breast milk production? At 10 months old she does not need to be breast feeding every 3 hours. Guideline for a 9-12 month old child should eat the following: Breast-milk or Formula (6-8oz) 3-5 feedings a day, Dairy 1 serving a day ā€“ cheese (1/2 oz) or yogurt (1/2 cup).

Avatar f tn Her weight is just below the 5th percentile and her height is on the 10th percentile for her age. Based on her weight / age, she should be consuming approximately 1800 calories per day for her to grow as recommended the following; Fruits = 1.5 cups; Vegetables 2.5 cups; Grains (cereals, breads) = 6oz equivalents; Meat & beans = 5oz equivalents; Dairy products (milk, yogurt) = 3 cups; Oils = 5 tsp; Additional calories to be used discretionary = 195.
773078 tn?1235285270 His weight is below 3rd percentile and his height is between the 25-50th percentile for his age. Suggest Pediasure in his bottle instead of milk for additional calories and protein. Maybe even pureeing all his food together and try putting it in the bottle to feed him if that is the only method he will consume food at this point so that he gets nutrients to grow. Suggest going back to OT for additional feeding therapy to learn to swallow and chew if they are able to do that with him.
Avatar f tn The doctors usually put their height and weight on a chart and let you know what percentile they fall into. If you are that concerned, I would have a physical done so that you can get an idea of where he is and where he should be. The doctor can then let you know what course of action to take.
Avatar n tn Your daughter is in the 5th percentile for her weight and height for her age so she is not 'off' the chart. I have to agree with her MD, as long as she is steadily gaining weight and growing (even if it is slow) she will be fine. Some children are small and it has to do with genetics. If her appetite is good and she eats her meals, then she is ok.
Avatar n tn His weight is just below the 5th percentile and his height is on the 50th percentile for his age for a 6 month old infant. From what you are describing he is a very curious boy and does not have time to eat. Suggest feeding him 5-6 times a day (3 meals with snacks between meals) so he gets more food. As a guideline for a 6-8 month old child should eat the following: Breast-milk or Formula (6-8oz) 3-5 feedings a day. Starch 2 feedings a day ā€“ Infant Cereal (2-4 Tbsp).
Avatar f tn Her weight is just below the 50th percentile and her height is between the 5-10th percentile for her age. As a guideline for a 4-6 month old child should eat the following: Breast-milk or Formula (6-8oz) 4-6 feedings a day. Infant Cereal (1-2 Tbsp) 2 feedings a day. Suggest giving her stained yogurt, cottage cheese, for calcium and protein to supplement the infant formula she is not taking in.
