Who do I see to see if 2 of our children's growth is normal?
I am of average height and my husband is tall. We have 2 children that are above average in height but the other two who were born at an average height have dropped down to the 3rd percentile not long after birth and have been tracking along that curve. Our newborn was tracking as being our tallest whilst in utero but slowed down just before birth and after.
Whilst they may have just inherited the genetics of shorter people in our extended family, I wouldn't mind checking up to make sure that this is normal. If they are just of the shorter variety that is fine, but I don't want to just leave it thinking that nothing is wrong if there is something I can do. I've brought it up with our GP a few times and she's brushed it off as she is low intervention.
Who can I see? Has anyone had experience with anything affecting growth?
We see the ECHC regularly and have had extra 'check ups' with the older one's growth along the way as they were concerned and they have recommended that I check on our newborn's growth before our next scheduled visit too. DS2's last check up was a waste of time as the EC nurse plotted his measurements on the graph wrong so it looked like he was doing okay...then I got home and moved them to where they should have been and it was back to where he was tracking.
