  • Well, at my dd 4 month appt, she was 15lb 11oz, so I think she is probably close to 17lbs now, maybe more . . . she's just growing like a weed. Your baby is fine. My dd was also a little baby, born 6lb 9oz full term, so she is almost tripling her birth weight at only 5 months.

  • I would say it's normal. I have a friend whose baby was born 9 1/2 weeks early and weighed only a little over 4 pounds and now weighs 25 pounds and is 8 months old. So I think you are right on track

  • When my youngest was 6mos he was 26pounds! And doc was worried. I guess we were feedin him too much. But he's 3yrs now and totally normal!

  • My DS was 17lbs 9oz at his four month check up and they didn't say anything to me about it so I'm sure your baby is fine to.

  • My baby at his 4 month check was 17-1, so I am sure now at 5 months he weighs at least that much. He's chunky, but not fat... he's really tall. Is your little one tall also?

  • my 6 mth.old dd weighs 22lbs.10ozs. she weighed 6lbs.10ozs. when she was born. her ped just told me she's REALLY healthy and would maybe do things later than slimmer babies b/c she's such a chunker! her big ol' legs are almost as big as my son's head!
