How much does (or did) you baby weigh at 3 months?

I took my 3 month old to the doctor today because I thought she was getting sick (just teething) and when they weighed her, I was shocked. She weighs 16lbs already! That's twice her birth weight. The doctor told me to start spreading out her feedings because that's too much weight (she's gained 3lbs since her last visit September 3rd). So, how much does (or did) your baby weigh at 3 months??

  • well my son is 6 months and weighs 13 pounds lol. Hes been underweight since he was born so I dont think my answer will help sorry. But at 3 months mine weighed around 10 pounds.
    And before i get bashed he had lots of issues and was in and out of the hospital for several weeks after he was born. I dont starve my kid.

  • My son was 8 lbs 8 oz at birth, 13 lbs 4 oz at two months, and 15 lbs 1 oz at four months.

    My daughter was 8 lbs 3 oz at birth, 13 lbs at two months, and 16 lbs 11 oz at four months.

    They didn't go to the doctor at three months.

  • My 3 moth old weighed 13 lbs 2 weeks ogo but i am sure he has gained a pound or two since. I started feeding him rice cereal once a day to make him feel full. Just make it a little more runny so they can swallow it easier.

  • My son weighed 13 lbs 2.5 oz. He didn't weigh 16 puonds til he was 6 months old. My friends son weights 25 pounds at 7 months already so it varies a lot. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just take the docs advice.

  • I think my dd weighed 16lbs 5oz at 4 months, so she probably weighed about 14lbs at 3months. It all depends on their height and weight together on wether they are overweight or under
