Ah thank you, not as low as I thought then.

He was on the 50th centile not so long ago, eek!

HV is totally unconcerned though - is definitely a "look at the child, not at the charts" type guy

I would go with the health visitor on the look at the child theory,surely every child is built differently as lond as bab is eating well dont worry.Also when they start toddling about they lose weight dont they.
