We started the gluten free diet (plus cutting out other offending foods) almost 7 months ago and my youngest is really growing alot:) I was going over her records the other day and the way she is growing is amazing...

At birth she was 8 lbs 8 oz, 20 1/2 in long

2 weeks...8 lbs 1 oz, 20 1/2 in long

1 month...8 lbs 7 oz, 20 1/2 in long

2 months...9 lbs 3 oz, 20 1/2 in long

4 months...9 lbs 3 oz, 20 1/2 in long

6 months...9 lbs 5 oz, 20 1/2 in long

9 months...12 lbs 10 oz, 22 in long

12 months...12 lbs 10 oz, 22 in long

15 months...17 lbs 5 oz, 23 in long

18 months(2 months gluten free)...19 lbs 2 oz, 25 in long

22 months (6 months gluten free)...25 lbs 1 oz, 30 in long

It is a huge improvement and I am beyond thrilled right now to see how much she has grown and just wanted to share in case any other mommys are concerned about their little ones not growing.
