Common Questions and Answers about Normal weight percentile

Avatar f tn My son was only in the 5th percentile starting at 24 wks. They put me on bed rest and told me to eat and eat some more :/. That was my last pregnancy, and he ended up getting to a healthy weight by birth. With you being 37 wks already I'm sure your dr wants to induce to be able to find out why your baby isn't growing and to fill him/her up with nutrients.
Avatar f tn My first baby was always and still is in the 97th percentile and he was a perfectly normal 8 pounds when he was born and still is a normal, healthy weight now.
187316 tn?1386360282 so, i was curious on went to an online weight percentile calculator. i don't know dd's exact weight, so i made up numbers to see how easily percentile can drop. I entered 24 1/2 pounds for her age (22 months) and it came up as 30th%. I then entered 23 pounds and it came up 18th %. Even just dropping 1/2 pound (so entering 24 instead of 24.5) dropped her down to 23rd %. So the numbers are very sensitive. And when you consider that a kid can produce literally a half-pound diaper...
Avatar f tn Im 34+6 wks and was told baby is in 23 percentile and weighs 5lbs 3 oz. They said 23 percentile was normal but didnt go into additional detail as to what that means?
Avatar n tn My husband and I went for our daughters 6 month well baby checkup and the doctor told us her head circumference placed her in the 95th percentile. Her body weight and height put her into the 50th p. and I wondered why there was such a difference. The doctor joked around about if our family had big heads but we all have, what I would consider to be, average sized heads.
Avatar f tn The weight at 3 years old was just below the 25th percentile for his age which is normal. Depending on his growth curve for the last 3 years, he may be at the 25th percentile? Every child is different.
Avatar n tn My 4 month old son has fallen off the 5 percentile graph for head circumference. his weight is on the 10th percentile graph and height on the 50th percentile graph. these two have remained constant since the time of birth and have been on the same graph. he is on breast feed entirely and is being given multivitamin and iron drops. should i be concerned about this head circumference? both my husband and me are of normal stature and do not have any disorder.
Avatar f tn His weight is just below the 75th percentile and his height is just below the 50th percentile for his age which indicates he is normal. As a guideline for a 12 month old child should eat the following: Dairy 3 feedings a day – Milk (4oz), cheese (½ oz), yogurt (½ cup), or cottage cheese (¼ cup). Starch 4 feedings a day – Cereal (¼ cup), pasta (¼ cup), rice (¼ cup), bread (½ slice), or crackers (2).
Avatar f tn My daughter weighed.almost 2 pounds. The 60 percentile thing is just to see where your babys weight is compared to other babies.
Avatar n tn Her weight is between the 10-25th percentile and her height is on the 50th percentile for her age which is normal. Since she is drinking milk, suggest milkshakes or smoothies with fruit - milk or yogurt, banana or strawberries (or any type fruit), ice cream for all meals (in place of milk) for additional calories for weight gain. It is frustrating when they become more interested in their environment instead of eating. That’s good you are giving her a multi-vitamin.
Avatar f tn Her weight is between the 90-95th percentile and her height is on the 50th percentile which indicates she is normal for her age and not overweight. Her weight is still within the growth chart. She is in puberty now and will be physically changing. As she gets older she may loss it. Suggest dancing which is fun and will help to lose the weight.
Avatar f tn I'm 32wks and 4days and had my ultrasound today and was told my baby is measuring in the 59 percentile and estimated weight is 4.8lbs but it could easily be more or less.
Avatar f tn I'm 18 weeks and 4 days and still haven't gain any weight. Doctor said it was normal... Anyone else go through this ?

Avatar m tn The fluid level checked out, but the baby's body measured behind about a week and a half and her head was below the fifth percentile. The doctor said not to worry but wanted to schedule another U/S in 4 weeks. Should I be worried about the weight or more importantly the small head size? Both my and my husband's families have larger than average heads which makes me even more nervous.

Avatar n tn His weight is just under the 50th percentile and his height is on the 95th percentile for his age. He is normal for his age. As a guideline for an 18-24 month old child should eat the following: Dairy 4 feedings a day – Milk (4oz), cheese (½ oz), yogurt (½ cup), or cottage cheese (¼ cup). Starch 4 feedings a day – Cereal (¼ cup), pasta (¼ cup), rice (¼ cup), bread (½ slice), or crackers (2).
Avatar m tn His weight is just above the 25th percentile and his height is just below the 75th percentile which indicates he is normal for his age. If he likes milk or yogurt, you can make him milkshakes (milk and ice cream blended) or yogurt smoothies (yogurt and ice cream blended) 2x times a day for weight gain. You can add a fruit he likes into the milkshakes, too. He is going into puberty and may start eating more food due to his growth spurt. Hoped this helped you.
Avatar f tn No she isnt considered big my bub was estimated 3 pounds at 30 weeks which is the normal weight means bub is growing well and at the pace it should be nothing to be concerned about
Avatar f tn She eats healthy choices of food. Recently she gains lots of weight around er tummy.We did thyroid test and its normal. She is very active. What can be the problem?
Avatar n tn The height measurement maybe incorrect or she is below the 5th percentile. Her weight is normal for her age. It is frustrating when your child will only eat a small range of food. The most important aspect is to relax at meals and not to force her to eat. Let her eat what she wants no matter how limited. If she is drinking milk, suggest making milkshakes (milk and ice cream blended) or yogurt smoothies (yogurt, fruit, and ice cream blended) in place of milk for additional calories.
Avatar f tn Her weight is just below the 50th percentile and her height is just above the 25th percentile for her age. She is normal for her age. That is good you are giving her Pediasure, however, give it to her in place of milk. Try milkshakes (milk and ice cream blended) or yogurt smoothies (yogurt, frozen fruit, and ice cream blended) which is cheaper than Pediasure. To ‘broaden her tastes’ is to engage her in the kitchen more. Children love to be a part of making food.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't worry about his weight. They start to level off at this point anyway. Is he eating well? My 8.5 mo old is only 14 pounds! hahaha she was under 5 pounds at birth though!
Avatar n tn Both his weight and height are on the 10th percentile for his age which indicates his is in the normal range on the Growth chart. What is important with Growth Charts is that the infant grows at a steady pace over time. If he falls asleep while eating, suggest changing his diaper (which will wake him up) or just wake him up by moving him and then put him back on your breast to feed awhile longer.
Avatar f tn If she is 16kgs, then her weight is on the 25th percentile for her age and she is normal. Some children are smaller then others in the same family. Thank you for your question.
Avatar f tn Im just wondering if that's normal since I have gestational diabetes.
Avatar f tn My boy at 35 weeks was measuring 5 pounds 3 ounces. I think after a certain week they gain half a pound a week. 5.11 seems normal to me. Puts her around 7 lbs at 40 weeks. My girl was born 7.12 at 41 weeks!
