  • haha thats VERY normal.. you have no idea.. my daughter was 5 months old and weighed 19 pounds.. i thought she was way overweight but the doctor said its completely normal.. chubby babies are healthy babies.. you dont want to have a super skinny baby because then you know they arent well nourished

  • That's almost exactly the same as my son at the same age.... I think it's fine.
