  • Yep, my daughter is 2 yrs. old and weighs 21 lbs. However, she was a 24 week preemie. As long as he's eating well and growing and the Dr. isn't concerned he will probably catch up eventually.

  • My 6 mo old weighed in at a whopping 11 pounds 2 ounces at her check up. No she is not underweight just petite. Below the 5th percentile on height and weight.

  • my daughter is 16lbs and 8 months. when she was at her 4 month check up they said for her age and weight she was in the 10th percentile but for the weight and height together she was in the 50th.

  • My daughter weights 22 lbs at 20 months. She was 19 1/2 at her 1 year appointment.

    Plus, the average weight for a 9 month old is 17.5 lbs so your daughter is in the 30 - 50% percentile which isn't too small.
