Well I am at the doctor's and Nick is very skinny. I hate this! He has totally fallen off his growth curve and is off the chart on weight. He will be starting food this month so I guess we can try to fatten him up that way but I am so frustrated. He doesn't look at all skinny or unhealthy.

Don't beat yourself up, he'll catch up. Oliver is always on the weight radar. As long as he's healthy and meeting his milestones he'll catch up. I always get the red flag speech followed by as the typical but he's still gaining so it's going in the right direction speech. I'd be more worried about the teen years; I suspect this issue is frequently caused by fast metabolism that'll kill your grocery budget down the road.

We have to go back in a month for a re-weigh. This happened with Max at 9 months. I am more concerned about his drop off in growth but the doctor says he is still perfect. We are starting food this month so she said feed him and he'll be fine. He doesn't even look skinny!

I agree, from the photos I've seen he looks like a normal baby chunk weight.

Good luck-my son was always a skinny baby and he is still skinny and tall-he takes after my husband. I hope the food helps :)

Thanks. We are off to a bad start since the vaccinations have made him throw up. Max (first son) is very thin with long legs, tall, etc. Nick was tall until this appointment and now he's short. And he has super chunky thighs and a big moon face...doesn't look skinny at all! At least the doctor doesn't seem very worried. She said he's perfect and we'll just see how much he weighs in a month.
