    My daughter is not on those percentil charts, but never has been.

    A dr told me that its more important that the child is following their OWN growth line.
    EG if your daughter has always been small, but is growing at a comparible rate, then its nothing to worry about. If she has big dips in her growth rate, thats something to look at.

    My DD is 6, 18kg and 100cm.

    You're quite little yourself o's mum. Our ds2 is tiny but it's just his build. He's very healthy and Incredibly good at sport, just small. I'm sure she is fine xoxo

    That's always good to hear as my DD turns 6 soon and is approx 14-15kg and 101cm.

    Just confuses you when you get lot's of parents comment on it and you start to second guess your own judgement.

    2 of my sisters were tiny and easily shortest in their class. They hit 12/13 and shot up! One is now 5ft6 and the other is now one of the taller in her class (only 13)

    It is frustrating, conflicting advice and comments.

    If your DD is healthy, i wouldnt be too concerned, just keep a track on her progress

    This. My DD was not on the charts when she was born (too small), and now, at 2yo, is only in the bottom 10th percentile. Her Paed has said as long as she is healthy and happy and growing in proportion to her OWN height/weight ratio then there is nothing to worry about. The worry is if she starts to go backwards. I'm sure your LO is fine
