Mine was in the 15th percentile.  But so was my FF.  I don't think it matters if it's formula or breast.  Children have their own body size and growth rate they are born with.

First child: She was above average, but not by much. If memory serves, she was always in the 50-60 percentile in weight.

Second child: Off the charts. lol He was in the 95% at his one month check up. After that, woosh! Off. :)

At his four month checkup, the doctor walked into the room and said "For Pete's sake, feed that kid! Clearly he's starving!"

Smartass. lol

I think we must have the same doctor, lol.

My DD was 25% at birth, 85% at 2 months, 90% at 4 months, 75% at 6 months, and now at 14 months is right around 25% again.

Our pedi came in at her 6 month visit and said something very similar, lol

I only have one that was EBF. I'm not sure where he would fit because  we don't do well checks & I ignore perentages.  He was over 10 lbs at birth  & by 6 months was up to almost 20.
