  • Babies come in ALL sizes...comparing is the road to madness.

    At six months. look for double birthweight.

  • That is 75yh percentile so above average
    nothing wrong with being above or below

  • ahhh my baby just turned 6 months. he weighs 14 lbs. believe me, he eats all day, but stays slim.... hes really long, above average for 6 month old, he is long and skinny. cute tho... and hes been eating solids for 2 months now too.

  • My son is almost 6 months and weighed in yesterday at 13 lbs 5 oz. The nurse said he's small but so are most of the babies in my family at that age so Im not worried. I wouldnt worry about other people telling you that he's too big or too small. as long as he's healthy and developing, dont worry about it.

  • Ah....if that's what you're looking for...yes, you do have a Sumo Baby. **grin** Mine was probably 16 pounds at that age. I've known others who were only 12-13 pounds. But again...look at where they START.

  • I know this is off point off the question...but it brings back sad memories. When we had to go get my grandson and g-daughter from their parents via g-son was 2 weeks from his first birthday and he weighed 14.9 lbs.m g-daughter was 2 yrs 2 months and weighed 21 lbs.....and people wonder why I still get upset everytime I think about it.
    My own boys were 13 and 16 pounds at 6 months
