I took Molly to the health nurse last night for her 18 month check-up thingy. We have changed nurses and I was a little nervous about it but it turned out to be really great. The nurse totally focussed on the whole picture and was very careful but natural in observing everything she needed to. Molly trusted her immediately. Molly now weighs 10.3kg which, for the 1st time has brought her UP a line on the growth curve! I knew her ferocious little appetite would show up eventually!
She's now between the 25th and 50th percentile for weight, right on average for height and above average for head circ.
It was a great relief to find someone who looks at the whole picture (including commenting that she had exceptional vocab and communication skills) and was happy to support me in my decision not to vaccinate her against chickenpox.
