    I'm curious as im worried about 4 month old DS.

    He started in the 90s for height, weight and HC.

    His head is still big (around 80th), his weight fluctuates between the 50s and 60s but his height is steadily decreasing. Started at 90 and now 36.

    I keep getting told by MCHN not to worry but I am starting to really worry, especially since the only thing Google found was something on growth hormone deficiency.
    I've just kept getting it all checked and making sure it doesn't drop anymore. He seems to be going along the same curve for a while now. DH is 6'4'' and I'm average height so we aren't short, but my dad isn't much taller than me and DH has a sister who isn't overly short, but shorter than average - so there is still a chance that he's copped the short jeans. What has always worried me though is that he also has never been a big eater and has eaten the least out of all of them.

    I would still like to get it all checked out but I would need to go to another doctor as ours is a low-intervention.

    What is her weight percentage when she was at 52nd percent? DS1 used to be 95th% height but only 50th% weight and there was nothing wrong with him as he has just always been slim with a huge appetite.

    If she drops again - ask them about it and keep on getting her checked on a regular basis. I remember being super worried when DS2 dropped from average to the smaller percentages and I've kept asking them and he has more check-ups for it than the other kids. Still have no idea where DS3 is going to sit as his growth/weight has still been bouncing around. I think somewhere between the older boys.

    She's 52% (62.5cms) in height right now and back down to 11% for weight (5.57kgs).

    They tend to do more referrals once the child goes off the scale.

    Yea I'm not worried about height. Weight stresses me though.
