Does anyone know where I can fine one online? I couldn't find one, but I'm on my phone which makes it a little difficult.


Had baby girls four month checkup today, with a new doctor because we moved, and she dropped in every single percentile pretty drastically. Didn't even realize until later that the doctor didn't ask if she was breastfed or formula fed until after all that. So I'm thinking she wasn't using the right chart, cause Rory has been slowly going up.

Mini-rant:
She also told me I would HAVE to start giving her baby cereal with iron in it at 6 months. And the packet they gave me said night time crying should be reassured, but baby should remain in the crib! I can only imagine the look of horror I would have gotten if they had found out we bed share.

The percentile things dont really work with breastfed babies from what I understand..or they are different from formula fed. Something like that.

Just do what your instinct tells you and to heck with everyone else.

oh my goodness!!!! Our doctor is so the opposite. She is against CIO, breastfed her DD for 4+ years, etc. Yes there is a breastfed baby chart. On the standard WHO chart, DD was always no on the chart, but on the breastfed chart, she was about 5%. http://kellymom.com/health/growth/growthcharts/

There are different charts for breastfed or formula fed, and boy or girl. But yes, my girl is growing and happy so I'm not worried about it! Just wanna know what her actual percentiles are.

I'm jealous of your doctor haha. My last ped wasn't exactly 'for' co sleeping and whatnot, but at least made sure I knew how to do it safely!
And yeah, she's low on the chart as it is so I don't want the doc to try and lecture me if she continues to be low because she is using the wrong chart.
Thanks!

I understand. My normal pedi never tells me percentiles so I dont have a good grasp on it. The pedi we saw today told me but I had no clue lol and I think it was a ff chart

my dr showed me DD's growth curve and it totally mimicked the standard growth curve, it was just below it (ie, not on the chart) but it was in the correct pattern, so she was not concerned. I think now, at 3yo, DD has pretty much caught up some and is on the chart, at least for height i know she is.
