I actually got around to weighing Allanah, she is 22lb at 27 months old. Anton is 29lb. There is a big difference in size in the two even though the weight difference doesn't seem as much as I thought there would be.

But don't you thInk there generally are different expectations for twins and preemies, neIther of which applies to us?
However it is comforting to know there are other healthy teeny tinies. I think really i'm struggling with the fear that there is something seriously wrong with Silvi, we just haven't yet found it.
Thanks for weighing in! Lol!

I am constantly fretting about my daughter's weight. She was weighed about two weeks ago... barely 23 lbs with clothes and shoes on! She's 20 months (not corrected). I will never feel confident about her size, and she continues to have poor eating habits.

I have to just accept that she was born early, a peanut, and many setbacks have prevented her from catching up. Just have to stay the course.

Or 3080g and she was happily tracking along the 25th percentile line until about six months ago. She is now well below the 3rd at 17lb, 8.55kg at almost 18 months.
She's been checked for coeliac and thyroid and a full CBC which hopefully excludes all the really really scary childhood cancers...

23 pounds at 20 months sounds fine..for a preemie.
DD was the same at 20 months but is now 25 pounds at 27 months..She was 4 pounds when she was born. Doctor is telling us she is at the 15%..not sure that is correct. Her height is 70th percentile.

whose 15 month old DD weighs 17lbs (under 10th %) but at the 50th % for height. She was a singleton born at 39 weeks. No complications. Her ped was stressing my friend always worrying about DD's weight but finally at her 15 month check up decided she is just petite. Other than significant reflux for the first few months, she has made all her milestones on time (if not early) and is otherwise well. I think some kiddos are just small. It's so hard not to worry but perhaps she is just going to be petite like my friends little one. Hugs.

she was just on the small side. Now she is seriously underweight with 'inability to deposit adipose' on her tummy and thighs.
If she was just little, started out little but continued to follow the lines on the graph like my older DD did (who was reasonably steady on the 5th percentile line until she was five....) I would be fine with that; it's the question of WHY she is not gaining weight at anything resembling a reasonable rate that give me cause to worry. It has been going on for 8 months and she has dropped more than 22%.
As I posted above, when doctors think it is something to worry about, I get worried. I do realise that many many kids are on the small side, and that would be fine if I could be sure that was the only thing going on.
Having had a kid almost die of an undiagnosed heart defect has really affected my judgement and optimism that things will turn out ok no matter what I do...as has living through 10,000 earthquakes, I get that; but medical services here are subsequently fairly stretched and if it was absolutely nothing to worry about I would not be getting the attention I am getting from the medics.
Thanks for your post; I am used to babies not following prescribed guidelines, I really am; it just seems to have gone a bit beyond that for my DD....and I am worried about why that is...
