Mine is almost 9 months (~6 months adjusted) and almost crawling, so no advice on that.
But, what scale did you use. Adult scales really dont get the correct weight down to the lb that the baby scales do. Plus the scale you use may be a lb or 2 off what the dr's office scale uses.
In my non-medical opinion-she sounds fine!
My daughter was around 16 1/2 lbs at her 9 month check up (7 1/2 months adjusted). She had JUST started crawling a couple of days before that and is now almost 10 months old and not only crawling everywhere like crazy, but is also now pulling herself up and cruising the furniture and I weighed her yesterday and she is now only 15 lbs! I was wondering if any other babies lost weight as they became mobile or if they stayed the same or gained weight. She eats 2-3 meals a day (depending on if she really wants it) and a few healthy snack and is still breastfed every 3-4 hours.
I just dont know if I should worry and call her pedi and let him know or if I should wait it out until her 12 month check up that is in two months.... and see how her weight is then.
What happened with your preemies when they became mobile?
(sorry if I posted this in the wrong place... I suck at finding the right place to post these things...)
My son was at 17lbs at one year and I was always SUPER stressed out about (being told he was in the 1-4%), but then a doctor found a preemie scale and started charting him on that. On the new scale he shot up to 25%! So silly that I was so stressed for the first 6 months of his life. I just try to feed rich fatty foods- my son eats avacado and LOTs of fat every day. Beyond putting out the right foods and bfing on demand, I have given in to trusting him. If you are worried, focus on fatty foods (bacon, avacado, lots of oils, coconut milk). I think she sounds fine
