Successful Breastfeeding Blog
Evidence based advice, support, and education for modern families.
Did you know that growth charts aren't created equal? There are specific growth charts that primarily represent formula fed babies, and babies fed human milk.
Very often I have families reach out to me worried that their babies aren't getting enough milk after they took a trip to their pediatrician. "Kelly, they said my baby's in the 10th percentile, and now I'm worried I'm not making enough. Help!"
Does this sound familiar? Hearing that your baby is "low" on the charts may seem scary. If you've ever been concerned about your baby's weight based on their charts, then this post is for you! Please welcome my guest blog contributor, Dr. Krupa Playforth, The Pediatrician Mom, as she shares with you her expert insights about navigating your baby's weight gain, and understanding the growth charts your baby's doctor uses.
