Is my baby too skinny?

All the baby clothes that are in her age range are too wide for her - is she a skinny baby? Should she be filling in these clothes more?

  • Don't worry about it, as long as she is healthy she's fine. Also, different brands fit differently, my very petite dd fits in Miniwear, Amy Coe, and Koala baby better than Carter's. Carter's she still fits in a 6 month size while in the others she fits in the 6-9 or 9 month size. She's 12 months old.

  • Every baby's different and as log and is active and healthy then there's no need to worry about weight.

  • Is she gaining weight? Staying roughly same %? If so I wouldn't worry about it. The clothes are sized according to avgs.

  • Ya, she's still gaining weight in the 50 percentile. I feel better now knowing it's nothing to worry about, thanks! :)
