  • My son weighed around that much at the same age. Some babies weigh less and some more.

  • All babies are different. At 4 months my son was 13 lb. At 6 months 15lb 7oz. My niece at 4 months was 18 lbs. So, it depends on the child. I wouldn't worry about it at this time unless your doctor is concerned.

  • Sounds good for HER. There is no "right" weight for a baby in general, just the right weight for a baby in particular.

    She's a lightweight compared to my guys. LOL

  • Sounds healthy to me, my son was 16 pounds at 9 weeks, and then weighed in at a hefty 20 pounds at his 4 month check up, at his 6 mos he had only gone up to 22, babies level off eventually alot of it has to do with genetics, big family, big baby. Once they stat moving around they slim down, and lets face it, a fat rolly baby is pretty adorable.
