Ah ha!

I've discovered why Nola is considered "small."

Different growth chart!  The WHO (not the band) has an international growth chart which is based on weights and lengths of babies who are breastfed exclusively for at least 4 months and at least partially until 12 months with no solids until 6 months. 

And by those numbers she's exactly average for weight and a little above average for length.

Check them out here for girls and here for boys

  2. You would think pediatricians would tell us these things and we wouldn't have to go searching for them, right! I remember being so frustrated with our doc when I l learned about the breasted baby chart.
