i know i am about to be hauled into the HV about DS3s weight gain today. he is 15lb 13oz and 33 weeks...heading to the 2nd centile on the ff chart. wanted to now where he falls on the "proper" one for him. He is still gaining but VERY slowly

Good luck!

By the way, my ds is 10mo, and weighed in at 16lb10z a couple of weeks ago, he is also heading towards 2nd centile. My HVs didn't seem to worried!

it's a bit confusing, are they the bf from birth ones on there?

he is still v low down.
i KNOW he is growing and he is eating and feeding as often as he possibly can but he is just so small!!

My HVs will be round at the drop of a hat. they seem to care about ds3 but not ds1 and 2hmm

Plenty of wet and dirty nappies? Is he happy, alert and meeting milestones? Then tell her to bugger off! grin You'd think by number 3 they'd assume you knew what you were doing!

yes he seems fine to me by all accounts. i could tell that the weighing lady wanted me stay today but i fled, so she hasn't actually made me stay yetgrin (had already spoken to her about ds2 and she brushed me off-long story)

those two charts are slightly different. is the kellymom one accepted for bf babies? i saw a nurse for his BCG the other day and she mentioned 'thrive lines' to use instead of the chart in the red book. (he's also gaining very slowly and is in 2nd percentile) anyone heard of these?
