  • My DD weighed 15 lbs at 5 months and she was only eating rice cereal mixed with breast milk once or twice a day.

  • At 5 I don't know, but at 6 months they were 20-22lbs (depending on which one). They were eating two stage 2 jars at each meal, at least 8oz of formula with each meal, 2 daily snacks of finger foods and juice/water mixed and a before bed snack of fingerfood and at least 8oz of formula. (this was at 6 months, too)

  • My almost-5-month-old weighed 14.6 at her last check-up and is 26 inches long. She is eating 2 jars of baby food a day. Or I will mix in 1-2 tbsp of prepared cereal with half a jar of baby food instead of feeding straight from the jar (especially if I'm introducing a new food).

  • My daughter was 10lbs and was not on solids due to your not supposed to start them until 6 months.
