  • I wouldn't worry!
    I'd be more worried about his weight in reference to his height. If you've got a shorter baby, of course he'll way less.

    My son's a tall one, and he's over 24lbs at just past 11mos.

  • My daughter is on the small side. She is 13 months and weighs 20.6 lbs. She is right at the average line. People always say she looks small and when I see her next to other babies her age I think that she is really small, but her doc says she is prefectly healthy and right on tract for her. Let your doc know if you are worried and he/she will let you know if there is a problem or not. Don't worry about what other moms tell you and don't compare your baby to others. You and your doc know your child best so the only people that can answer your question are those two people =)
