I know him growing is good but is there a chance he's getting too big too fast?

Riley will be 6 weekstomorrow and at his well baby check (we didn;t see adoctor, just didweight andlenght) he was 12lb 2oz and 23.5 inches.

Last MONDAY he was 11lb half an oz and almost 23 (birth was 9lb 4oz 22in)


thoughts? I'm eating healthy foods as well....

Gain starts to slow as baby gets older and more mobile. No worries mama. :)

Sounds good to me.  Mine was 8-5 at birth and at one month check up he was 12 lbs.

They grow in spurts so he's fine. It'll slow with age
