I wouldn't worry!! a baby's birth weight doubles around 6 months of age and triples by 12 months. But remember that each child is different. Your child may be smaller or larger than other children of the same age. As long as your child continues to grow at a regular pace, your doctor will likely assure you that your baby's growth is within the normal range. Most babies nearly triple their birth weight by their first birthday. at 5 month's my son weighed more then 18lbs. Today he is 6 and he looks like all his other classmates in kindergarten, though I know he weighs more then my 8 yr old nephew. But its normal for them!
