  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average weight of a 2 month old baby girl is 11 lbs. I wouldn't worry about the weight right now since it would double between months 3 to 4

  • Don't stress, my daughter was so much longer and weighed more than the average 2 month old, she's never been unhealthy and at almost 3 is very tall. Just be ready for these questions- how much is she eating? How many dirty diapers does she have daily? Are you bf and how are you eating if you are? How is her sleep habits? If this isn't the dr when she was born, was she a small new born? Don't be concerned unless the dr is.

  • My daughter was born June 9th and she is just under 12 lbs...She is just starting to transition from 0-3 months to 3-6 month clothes.

  • All 5 of mine were between 10-12 lbs at 2 months.

  • Your question is sort of like asking what a 24 year old should weigh. There's no one answer that's correct; it will vary based on height.

    Average gain, however, is one to 1.5 pounds per month. So your two month old should be two to three pounds above LOWEST weight, not birth weight. Birth weight is something to write down and forget. Measure gain from lowest weight.

  • I don't think there is a 'normal'. The range is pretty wide and there are many variables.
