Scarlett's 18 Month Stats

This morning Scarlett had her 18 month check up and she passed :) The pediatrician was pleased with her 18 month survey results, milestones, growth, etc. Scarlett has been taking oral Iron supplements for over a month now due to a low ferritin level.

Head Circumference: 19 inches (90%)
Weight: 22.6 lbs (22%)
Height: 32 inches tall (59%)*

*pedi said gravity pulls them down when measured standing up and would measure 60+% if measured laying down

So she actually grew a whole inch since her last appointment at the end of March but her weight remained the same, resulting in her weight percentage to drop from 48% to 22%. The pediatrician wasn't concerned with this once I told her how much she was eating. She said they just end up burning more energy being active than what they take in.

In September, we will go back for a weight check, follow up blood work for her iron levels, and a flu shot.
