    Lola is 7months 3weeks. She weighs 17lb 14 between 25 and fifty percentile. She is 29 inches long which is above 95 percentile and head circumference is 14.14 which is also about 95 percentile.is this normal? Can you tell me what your babies are or were at this age?what does it actually mean?

    At 7months Keeley weighed 17lbs 6oz's she's always followed the 75th line for weight.

    She's on the 70th line for length but her length has only been done a few times 7months being the last time it was done :?

    At 6months her head circ was 37.5 and at a yr it was 45.25..
    none of that makes any sense to me :oops:

    melissas nearly as old as lola shes 7 months 2 weeks. shes 17lb 8oz just below 50th centile which was the centile she was on at birth.

    her head circumference has always been around 75th centile tho

    her length hasnt been done since birth! :eek:


    i can tell u what it means: if ur babys at 75th centile, that means out of 100 babies the same age, 75 of them will be smaller and the rest are bigger. if babys at 25th centile, only 25 babies would be smaller the rest bigger. and 50th is half and half. my hv explained it to me!
