As most people know, my LO was born 6 weeks premature and weighed 4 lbs 8 ozs. During his 2 month checkup his weight was 9 lbs and recently at his 4 month checkup he was 12 lbs 13 ozs. Both of his checkups he was in the 5th percentile. I feel like a failure that my son is so small.. does anyone else have this irrational response? I just want him to be like 50 percentile or something "normal." The pediatrician says he looks great but I'm still worried that he's so small compared to "normal babies." On the positive side the doctor said that relating to his milestones (smiling, head control, laughing, pressure on legs, etc) are the same if not better than a full term baby. It's just frustrating leaving the doctor sad all the time about LOs weight.
