These charts mean next to nothing.
I had a friend whose children were all breastfed and all her children registered below these charts, she was a very very good mother and they stressed her out ( the charts ). Her and her husband were not big people and her kids were active.
Then my kids are off the chart. Got some height on our side, and so I am equally offended by the charts because my kids are healthy but, too big? :-(
The charts are good- but they are not for everyone.
Kinda like the tags on clothes. My three year old fits a 4T
My three month old fits 12 months!
boo hoo! I cry because I dont get newborns for very long! ( not really but it makes me sad! )
