My DD just had her 4 month check up and weighs 13.8 pounds and is 26 1/2 inches long. The Dr said she was doing great. But it is not the Dr that has made me worry, it is EVERYONE else!! Everyone is saying she is too skinny.

So I come to you guys for your ideas!

Her weight gain and height is as follows

JAN 28 th-Birth weigth and height= 8.11 lbs 20 inches

FEB 1st-5 day appoint.= 8.7 lbs

FEB 10th-16 day appoint= 9 lbs 21 1/2 inches

MARCH 29th-2 month appoint= 10.7 lbs 24 inches

June 10th-4 month 1 day appiont. 13.8 lbs 26 1/2 inches

THANK YOU!!

 Honey she sounds fine. When people feel the need to offer their unwelcomed opinions you can just tell them that it must be in here genes to be thin.

It sounds to me like she's doing just fine.  Every baby is different.  I'd tell everyone else that as long as she's eating well, she's happy & healthy that they need to stop the comments as they're unnecessarily worrying you.
