  • Ours is as well. By 6 months they should double their birth weight. She was 8.13 at birth and at 6 months was 16.5 so he is fine.

  • my baby was 15.5 and 24.5inches at 4months so she will be close to that in 3months. No it isnt bad. It is only bad if they are so chubby that they cant move.

  • My 2 1/2 yr old is 34 inches tall & 22 pounds. She is under the 5th percentile for weight and her Dr. wants her to gain some weight. She was a 23 week preemie so she's still on the small side and wears 12 - 18 mos. clothes.
