    Default Measurement question?

    i had my 8 and 1/2 month old baby boy weighed and measured this morning at midwifes and he is the same length at 8 1/2 months as he was at 6 months old (71cm) has anyone else experienced this with their baby's? Midwife didn't seem concerned .

    Could have just had a growth spurt at 6months and be sue for another one soon. Did but put on weight? If so I wouldn't be super concerned just yet.

    My daughter is 11 months and 70cms so my guess would be that the latest measurement was correct and the other one could have been out?

    Thanks for your replies and yes he is putting on weight but no I don't think his clothes are getting any smaller not in length anyway :-/ I will give it another month before measuring him again and see what happens :-)

    If his weight went up I wouldn't be too worried yet, my DS seemed to alternate between growing up and growing out. As in, his height would increase while his weight was steady and vice versa.
    What were his percentiles for that height at 6 months and 8.5 months? That can help put things in perspective, and show if there was a growth spurt followed by a rest.

    I think the method for measuring babies leaves a lot of room for error so id not be too concerned
