  • Bigger than you were, but I don't think that's that big. My guy as 24 inches and 14 lbs 10 oz at his two-month appointment, and is not too big! You can check out a percentile chart to see where your baby is in comparison to others her age (I have one on my page, if you want to check it out), but I wouldn't be concerned about it. Your doctor will tell you if she needs to gain weight or if she's on the road to obesity. :)

  • well for my son's 4 months checkup he was 25inch 18lbs. but he was perfect with his hight and weight evening out. every baby is different, so unless her Pedi says something, i wouldn't worry about it

  • No. They don't make any predictions about adult height or weight until a child is at least 2.
