  • My 2 year old weighs 25lbs, so no I think that's a bit much for a 4 month old.

  • Well my 2 year old weighs 24 lbs on a good day, but he has a very fast metabolism and it takes alot to get him to gain weight. But one of my brothers weighed 20 lbs at 6 months, now he's 14, 6 feet and built like a football player. So I guess every baby is different.

  • No. 50% of 12 month olds don't weigh that much.

  • wow!!!
    my daughter is 10m old and weighs 17lbs.
    my son is 2 1/2 yrs old and weighs 30lbs.
    If your baby was bi when it was born then yea its normal. babies are expected to double birth weight at around 3-5m

  • Wow that's a big baby. I don't know if it "normal" but I think that when you're talking about babies nothing should be called "normal". I just want to know how you lift that baby in the carseat?! My baby is 8 months old and only weighs 18 lbs and I have a hard time lifting him if he's in his seat. Holy Moly! You must have arms of steel.
