1 year stats

Ronin had his 1 year appointment today. The needles were brutal, poor little guy was so upset and when the nurse came to give him a sticker he flinched away from her when she put it on his arm.
Thankfully they didn't say too much about his weight even though he has dropped down off his previous curve, same with his length. They don't even want follow up this time, though I am guessing if it's still dropping at his 18months appt they will start doing more. They also didn't say too much about the fact he doesn't sleep or that he is still breastfed, though I knew they would be all good with the breastfeedin, it's just the feeding at night she did mention briefly.
So his stats
Weight- 19lbs (5th percentile)
Length- 27.5 iches (3rd percentile)
Head circ.- 18.6 inches (above 50th percentile.)

OMG that alone would make me cry. I want to cry right now just thinking about poor little guy!

I'm glad they didn't make any comments

Shots are the pits.. Im pretty sure even at this age, babies can recongnize the face with pain.. He was probably scared of that nurse after she stung him with that shot.. Sad

Are you concerned about his weight? If so, just so you know, Rowan is only 7oz heavier, and she's in the 24th percentile, so I think the curve is pretty tight at that end. If 7oz on that end of the chart means 19 percentile points higher, then a simple bowel movement can probably move them pretty far up and down the chart.

I'm not concerned, he eats lunch and dinner, sometimes breakfast (often he just has a big nurse) and two snacks and the only time he is ever still is when he is asleep, so not very often. He looks healthy and my hubby was small until his teens.

Aw, poor guy getting shots. No fun whatsoever. Sad Have you looked up the percentile for his weight per his height? According to the WHO, 19 lbs is in the 50th percentile for his length. I'm glad they didn't bug you about his sleeping habits. I still don't think its any business of theirs.

They don't look into weight percentiles for height at child health, they just plot each individually and tend to freak parents out by telling them they are underweight.

Aww, poor guy with his shots. That is so sad about the sticker.
I'm glad your not concerned about his weight. Odin might just be hitting the 18lb mark (big maybe) at this point but eats like a champ. The doc. has learned better than to give me grief about his weight.

He is at daycare because it will keep his mind off it and we have to pay for his spot even if he's not there. I'm going to pick him up early and take him to the park this afternoon

Poor guy. I'm not looking forward to our one year shots either. DH always goes with us to stand by Evan while he is getting his shots. I'm such a wimp!!

Poor baby with the shots! Sad

Aiden was just a couple of ounces above 19lbs at his sick appt last week. He's down a pound from earlier in the summer! But I don't think that's any reason to be concerned since these kids are still BFing and are eating solid foods well. Maybe they gave a great metabolism that's kicked in already! Wink

I feel sooooo bad for babies when they get their shots!! They have no idea what is coming, and it breaks my heart. The way they look at you while/after it's happened, like why didn't you stop that mommy?? OMG, makes me cry everytime!! Cray 2
