How much should my 12 week old weigh?

He weighs between 14 and 16 pounds and is breast fed. Everybody keeps calling him chunk and it's giving ME a complex!!

  • Your baby is fine. Take it as a compliment. Babies are supposed to be chunky!! Your doctor will tell you if your baby is too heavy, but a breastfed baby at that size is doing great...

  • He's FINE. You can't overfeed a breastfed baby.
