You and dad: Your baby's size is determined mostly by your and dads genetic codes and how they interact. Your baby's percentile means very little in the way of medical risk unless the percentile is at either end of the growth curve. Being 60th percentile means being right in the middle of the pack - this is good news ! I suggest you talk to your OB and ask them the same questions, it's important !
