My baby is only 5 months and weighs over 16 pounds! How much is too much? She is already in 6-9 month clothing...Is there anyone else experiencing the same thing?

That's the same as my 3 month old. All babies are different. As long as your pediatrician isn't worried you shouldn't be. :)

What does your pedi say? I wouldn't be worried about weight unless the doctor is.

Every baby is different....my 1st. ds grew real fast and was in 12mo. clothing early while my last little was more on the small size and could wear clothing much longer that was not her actual size....I would say check with your drs. for more info about the weight...

My ds was like that. He was in the 95th percentile @6that months weight and height wise. Yeah he was my little- er big- chubby monkey. He's healthy growing hitting milestones I wouldn't worry about weight. Kids "even out" as they grow and they grow in all shapes and sizes. Ds is still tall but thinned out....he looks 7 or 8 height wise but is 6in june.
