Avatar f tn I'm 35 weeks on Thursday and my son is measuring in the 8th percentile and i was wondering if anyone has had this happen an what did your ob/ midwife do? I have a doc apt.
Avatar n tn When you go to see your pediatrician, you probably have noticed the chart of height and weight that is embedded in your child's medical chart. Each time the pediatrician sees your child, he or she plots your child's vitals on this chart and looks for any significant abnormalities that might invite further investigation. I think it's worth mentioning your concerns to the pediatrician, but if he/she doesn't seem concerned by your daughter's weight, that's encouraging.
551604 tn?1333986735 Well, Reece was in the 78th percentile for his weight at my 24w4d appointment. Like Kiki explained to me when I was freaking out about that...50th percentile is right on the money, so our little ones are a little over average.
Avatar f tn Children's weight and heights are compared to a Growth chart which is a range per age. From your measurements her weight is below the 5th percentile and her height is on the 5th percentile for her age. She is below the growth chart range which indicated she could be underweight or small for her age. If her weight has been steadily increasing (slowly), since an infant, then she has is just small for her age. If that is not the case, then she is underweight.
Avatar f tn also i confirmed his weight from U/S now i have appointment for 34wks and i m hoping he stays at 90th percentile.. those three lines on chart are estimated weight for baby and it also helps midwife to understand if baby has growth restrictions etc.. but they are not always correct.. :).. its always give or take two pounds when baby is born :)...
Avatar f tn Began weight gain around 5. Before that, she was always around the 5th percentile in weight. She had a healthy appetite and was extremely active. When she started putting on weight, her hair changed (became dull, terribly knotted), she got rashes on her wrists and shins on and off. She had dark circles under her eyes and her stomach was the first place (and still is) where her weight began to show. At age 7 her cholesterol was high and her thyroid came back abnormal.
Avatar n tn His weight and height are below the 3rd percentile for his age. Sometimes when children are smaller, it maybe genetic. Are there smaller stature males in the family? If he is gaining weight and growing at a steady rate, no matter how slow, that is considered he is alright but small. Suggest the following to wean him off breast milk to regular milk: mixing ¾ breast milk with ¼ regular milk and see if he accepts and tolerates it.

Avatar f tn They just have to watch close! Usually if the baby gets under the 10th percentile they worry. My girl was in the 25th percentile for the longest time and just shot up to 35th. My doctor kept threatening steroids so I was very thankful for that growth spurt! I was a small baby and am only 5'1 now.
Avatar f tn Our son is just over three months old and we are very concerned that his head circumference has dropped since birth from the 10-25 percentile to the 3rd percentile. We took him for an ultrasound today and that came back all good but we are wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing with there child and if so what it meant for you and will it correct itself?
118074 tn?1228332603 1 lb, the nurse said he's fallen off the chart...his height is in the 10-25 percentile. The doc didn't seems to be too concerned but she said he needs to have a different diet that contains more fat. Any suggestions here? I am very worried and don't know what to do since he doesn't like to eat. Help!
996372 tn?1250108214 His weight is below the 5th percentile and his height is just below the 10th percentile (on the Growth chart) for his age. Children with cardiac issues are usually underweight. If his VSD has been surgery corrected, then he will gain weight as he gets older. It is good you are giving him shakes. Use them in place of milk so he gains weight. You can make your own with milk, ice cream, and fruit blended which is cheaper.
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 n tn From the measurements you wrote, her weight is below the 5th percentile and height is on the 5th percentile for her age. Some children are small for their age due to genetics. Have you tried nutrient dense drinks, such as Pediasure or Carnation Instant Breakfast Drink? These drinks should be in place of milk for extra calories and protein.
Avatar f tn She was at 50th percentile two months ago but she is at 25th percentile now, her weight when she born was 7 lbs and 2 ounces. She still nursing 2x per day but I think she does get enough but she doesn't like eat I offer her different healthy food but she only eat a little bite and prefer baby jar she doesn’t like cow milk. Now I am giving her organic formula for toddle mixing yogurt to chance the flavor, because I am worry that she still losing weight. Please any advice I appreciate you.
Avatar n tn His weight is on the 5th percentile and his height is on the 25th percentile for his age. He is still on the growth Chart, which is good. Suggest drinking either nutrient dense drinks (in addition to eating meals) such as ensure or make your own milkshakes - soy yogurt, soy milk, and frozen fruit blended together; or milk, ice cream, and frozen fruit blended together for extra calories, protein and nutrients to help increase his weight.
Avatar n tn His weight is just below the 5th percentile line and his height is just below the 10th percentile for his age. The height and weight are in the growth chart; however, the weight is on the bottom. Maybe the following will help you to know the amounts of food he needs daily to gain weight. 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 – cheese (1/2 oz) or yogurt (1/2 cup).
Avatar f tn Im 30+2 and i had a growth scan at 28 weeks and babies estimated weight was 1042g, roughly 2.4oz. Under 10th percentile on the growth chart. So they booked me for a scan at 30 weeks. Had scan scan yesterday and babies estimated weight is 1280g roughly 2.12oz. Dropped lower than last point on my growth chart. Have to have placental dopplers twice weekly. Ctgs every second day until my next growth scan at 32 weeks.
Avatar f tn For your age, your weight is on the 25th percentile which indicates you are normal and not underweight. You are measured on the growth chart due to being consisted a child (under 20 years old). The fluctuation of weight maybe caused due to the time of day. We weight less in the morning then at night. You may have been more active and lost weight even though you seemed to eat more. A 17 year old needs 2200 calories per day.
Avatar f tn Her weight is between the 10th - 25th percentiles and her height is just on the 10th percentile for her age. She is on the growth chart which indicates she is normal for her age. What is important is that she is gaining weight at a steady rate even if it maybe slow. She is 27 months old and should be eating regular foods (the food you eat) cut up in small pieces and eating on her own.
Avatar n tn If he is 2 years, 2 months, then his weight is between 5-10th percentile and height is on the 5th percentile which indicates he is still on the growth chart and normal. If his age is 3 years old then both his weight and height are below the 5th percentile. Suggest giving him Pediasure in place of milk at meals (in place of the milk) and snacks. Some tips for additional calories: If he likes pasta, then add meat or cream sauces to the pasta instead of plain tomato sauce or plain pasta.
Avatar n tn Our daughter had Lyme Disease when she was 5, she is now 10 and has gained weight since diagnosed with the disease. She is at the 95th percentile, 106 lbs on the weight chart & at the 50th percentile, 54 inches on the height chart. She eats healthy foods most of the time but the weight still comes on. We had her thyroid tested and that came back within acceptable ranges last year. We are going to tested her again shortly.
Avatar f tn Her weight is between the 5-10th percentile and her height is below the 5th percentile for her age. She is still on the growth chart for weight which is good, and she maybe just small in stature. Does the family have a history of small women? That is good you are using milkshakes and Pediasure. Suggest giving her milkshakes in place of milk at every meal. Make sure she is eating a protein food each meal (meat, fish, cheese, or yogurt) too.
Avatar n tn His weight is just above the 25th percentile and his height is between the 90-95th percentile for his age which indicates he is within the growth chart and normal for his age.
Avatar n tn Her weight is on the 10th percentile and her height is just above the 10th percentile for her age. She is on the growth chart which is good. She was born early so she is alittle on the smaller side but as long as she is growing steadily, no matter how slow, she will be fine. Suggest giving her Pediasure in place of milk or milkshakes (milk, ice cream and fruit blended together) or yogurt smoothies (yougurt, milk, and frozen fruit blended together) for extra calories and protein.
Avatar m tn His weight is just below the 5th percentile and his height is between the 25-10th percentile for his age. He is slightly underweight for his age as per the Growth chart. For his weight/age he needs 1500-1800 calories per day as recommended the following: Fruits (limit fruit juices) = 1.5 cups; Vegetables 2.
678100 tn?1245982521 Her weight is just above the 10th percentile and her height is on the 50th percentile for her age. She may appear thin due to her height. Her weight is within the lower part of the growth chart, however, it is consisted normal. If she has steady increased in growth and weight, even if it was very slowly, she is fine.
Avatar n tn Her weight is below the 3rd percentile and her height is just below the 25th percentile for her age. If she is gaining weight steadily no matter how slowly then she is fine. If her GI doctor has been treating her and has her off her medication for 6 months (without issues), and with a slow weight gain, then suggest follow his advice. If you want to give her more calories and protein for some weight gain, suggest giving only 4oz of Pediasure 2-3 times a day and see if she tolerates that.
Avatar f tn Eating more will just make you put weight on. I have put on lots of weight but my baby is small. It is not even reaching 10 centile. But she is growing so i am not too worried at the moment.
Avatar f tn From the measurements you wrote, your weight is between the 25-50 percentile and your height is just above the 10th percentile for your age. You are under 20 years old and need to track your weight and height on a children's Growth Chart. You are normal for your age (not underweight or overweight). For healthy eating, eat a Heart Healthy diet which means a moderate fat diet to lower the fat content of your foods, increase ‘good’ fats to benefit your body.
