I think it depends on what chart they use. The ones that most pediatricians use I think only draws in the parts from 5th to 95th percentile. The feeding team I go to has a more detailed chart that they use that also has all the ratio breakdowns, etc. Even then, they would usually tell me "below the 3rd percentile." Sometimes I wonder if the 1st and 2nd percentile is ever used in that context because that is where many children with illnesses are, etc., so it's not a useful designation anymore when talking about a healthy range of weight? I don't know. I just know the feeding team has been working with us with the 3rd percentile as our goal.
