My dd is 20 months old and I don't think she's gained much weight since her 12 month check up. She may have gained some, as I don't remember exactly what she weighed, but I don't think it's more than a 1/2 lb - 1 lb of weight gain. I haven't taken her for her 15 or 18 months wellness exams. We had a bad experience at her year check up, then around the 15 month old one we were in the process of moving so I just put it off till we got the the new city (honestly, I didn't want to return to the dr office we had been going to after the 12 month check up). Then we moved and I got pregnant and had two months of vomiting so didn't have the get-up-and-go to find a new ped and take her in. I am in the process of trying to find a new ped here, but a little gun shy because I dreaded going to the last pediatrician - the 12 month check up was the last straw. I'm nervous to try out a new ped, especially if she hasn't gained much weight.
She weighs around 24 lbs - I am just weighing her on a scale with me, then subtracting my weight, so I don't have ounces or anything. That's essentially how they weighed her in the dr office because she would cry so much when they tried to weigh her independently of me. I know she's grown in height quite a bit, her pants are getting too short on her. She is bit of a picky eater, but eats high fat things like cheese, butter, peanut butter, eggs, meat, etc. She eats lots of fruit though, and a few veggies. She is still breastfed, and I don't limit her nursing (though I am planning on night weaning her soon).
She was small when born - 6 lb 9 oz, then gained weight like crazy and chunked out - into the 90% percentile in her 4th and 6th month, then weight gain slowed and now seems non existent. I think 24 lbs is in the 50% percentile for 20 months.
Otherwise she seems fine. Very talkative - already saying 3-4 word sentences, seems fine physically.
My question to you mamas: should I be worried? I assumed she had gained weight, but just found out this morning that she is still 24 lbs. I'm a little alarmed and when I searched on the internet it sounded like a big deal - particularly if she dropped percentages like she has. But I don't feel like there's anything wrong with her. She looks healthy, seems happy, etc.
