  • He hasn't been weighed since 6 months and he was 16lbs and some ounces. I'm gonna guess he's somewhere around 18lbs now?? But I could be way off. I know next week.

  • ok I feel better now! My son is 8 1/2 months old and he is about 18 lbs not sure exactly how long but he has always been long for his age. People act like he is small. Even innocent comments from strangers bug me. A lady at target said Her son was so much bigger and "they don't miss a meal." It shouldn't bug me but it did. It felt like she was implying that I don't feed my child! sorry got a little off track.

  • Okay, my LO weighed in at a whopping 14 8oz at her 9 mo check up and was 25 1/4 inches. She was approx the same size as an average 5 mo old. I don't believe that there is a over weight or under weight for babies. You feed them when they are hungry and you just let them grow at their own pace. Most docs don't take into consideration the child's genes when they look at growth charts. If your child is making their own curve then let them be. We are well below the 5th percentile and she is happy as can be and meeting all her milestones (except for climbing on furniture but she is too short) on time or ahead of schedule.

  • I would find a new doc, or just ignore yours! Doctors push WAYYY too much for fat babies. If YOUR not worried, he's developing fine, and most importantly having plenty of wet and poopy diapers, then dont push him to eat more than he wants to.

    At my daughters nine month check up she weighed sixteen pounds, maybe a little under. I dont remember how long she was. She's now a year and weighs seventeen pounds. She's small, but she's healthy, and I have a wonderful doctor who trusts me and my motherly instincts :)

    If he's breastfed, check out the growth charts on kellymom.com. Their more accurate to breastfed babies, as the growth charts at the doctors offices are based on formula fed babies, who are often bigger.

  • dont worry, my daughter has always been tall and skinny. she weighed about 16 pounds at 9 months. i cant remember her height but she is always around the 90th percentile for height. at 16 months she was about 24 pounds and in the 97th percintile for height.
