    if she's only gained 2 oz in 3 weeks?she went from 13.1 to 13.3 and she's already a tiny baby. she's always been in the 5th percentile for heigh and around 30th for weight.

    she eats 6 oz every bottle and some times only 5 though.

    Is your doctor worried? If she doesn't gain they can diagnose her as failure to thrive, but if she is eating regularly and not sick I wouldn't worry unless they worry.

    i havent been yet. she gets her 4 month shots on the 19th though. last time she said she's growing "great". she saw a new one though and i kinda don't trust her. she has no kids and her other pedi has 6 kids with another one on the way idk. i trust his experience more.

    but i even give her a little bit oatmeal like 5 or 6 baby spoon fulls before she sleeps and she still gains weight so slow. maybe it's just the way she grows idk.

    Babies go through different stages of growth, too. They will get fatter, then get longer and not gain much, then get fatter, then get longer and not gain much. Perfectly normal! She could just be a slow gainer, which is okay! Kalista only gained a few lbs in the last 3 months (which is abnormal for MY babies ) and had barely gotten an inch longer in the last 7 months. It's just how she grows! She is a teeny tiny. Kaia, not so much.

    Aubree has gained less than 10 lbs in a year. All babies grow at different rates-- I would just make sure that your pediatrician is comfortable with it.
