No. Her weight gain should slow when she becomes mobile.

It's impossible for a breastfed baby to be overweight/overfed. Are you nursing?

Van is 15lbs idk how many oz. He will be 4 months on the 11th. I don't think that's over weight at all. Van was born 7lbs 4oz

How much are you feeding her each day if you're formula feeding? (Which I *think* you said you were...sorry if I misremembered:))

It is quicker than expected but that's not to say she's overweight. Could just be how SHE is growing.

Babies are never overweight. They're babies. There's no "normal", only different sizes. I wouldn't worry so much about overweight.

When DD1 was 4 month, she was 19 lbs even, and 27" long. Now at 4 years old, she's 50 lbs and 43". She's solid and tall. Just her build.

DD2 is 14 months and about 19 lbs and 31". She's long and skinny. Different body type.

No. At 4 months... My son was 19.2 lbs and 25 7/8 inches tall. My doctor always said as long as they are proportional, they are ok!

My ds is 16 lbs, 26 in and just over 3 mos. (born 10 lbs 11)

My first son was I think 15 lbs even at 4 mos and I don't remember how tall. (born 5 lbs 14)
