LO2 was born 3 months ago, at 28th percentile. She has hovered between 22nd-28th percentile since then, with weight checks at 4 days, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, and 3 months. Her dr is not concerned - the 1 month and 3 month weight checks were done by me. She is EBF with one bottle of breastmilk a day. Her nursing and napping frequencies and durations are normal. She was born at 7lbs9oz and is only 11lbs8oz today - so, 4 pounds in three months. LO1 gained that in 6 weeks!
So, I know that all of those are important benchmarks, BUT.... she is SO skinny! I can feel her ribs whenever I hold her. She feels so fragile. Is feeling the ribs normal with this low of percentiles??
My only frame of reference is LO1 and he was chubby - 90th percentile 0-6 months, then slowly decreased to 50th percentile by 12 months, and he's been between 40-50th percentile since then (now age 2y4m).
