How big is your baby?!

We took DD in for her 4 month well check and shots last Friday. She weighed in at 14.12 and measured 25.25 inches and the nurse freaked. Said she's HUGE. 90th percentile for height and 80th for weight. 

She seems average compared to other babies she's been around but it makes me curious.

She was 6.12 and 19.5 inches when she was born so I'm glad I'm providing enough for her but I really didn't think she was such a GIANT!

Re: How big is your baby?!

  • If she's huge my son is a mammoth! He was 16lb 9oz and 26.5 inches at his four month!
  • My LO will be 17 weeks tomorrow. She was 17lbs and 24 inches at her 3 month appt. over 95 in weight and 90 for height
    she was 8lbs 9oz at birth
    I am EBF, I think I might have some extra strength breastmilk haha.

  • I get that comment a lot as well! At my little guy's 4 month appt he weighed 16 lbs 4 oz and was 26.25 in long. So... I might not be the best one to ask but I think they are just fine! Lol

  • At 4 month visit he was 25.75 inches (79%) and 16 lbs (73%). He was 7 lbs 11 oz at birth. I don't think your baby is that big!

    Lol! This was my exact thought! DD went to the pedi on Monday and she was 17 lbs 10 oz and 27 inches long! She will be 5 months on Sunday. I constantly get people thinking she is 6 - 7 months old.

    well we haven't gone to her 4 month appt yet but at her 3 month she was 13 1/2 pounds and 24 1/2 in. long so I don't think that's unusual! they did say that she was on the tall side which is weird cause I'm 4'11 lol

  • I have a little guy.... 12.6lbs (4th percentile), I think he was 24.75 inches (32nd percentile), and his head was 42.5cm (76th percentile).  But he is increasing in all percentiles, so that's good.  Was 6lbs at birth, dropped to 5lbs 5oz and had trouble gaining at first.

    fwiw, my sisters was 16lbs 4oz at 4 months, her older son was over 18 at 4 months, she makes round babies.

  • DS won't have his 4 month appt. until July 8th (which is really like 4.5 months), but at his 2 month he was 26.5 inches and weighed 15.2 lbs. I estimated he is about 28 inches and at least 18 lbs. He is a big guy! Doesn't look like a little 4 month old!

    my DD is almost exactly the same -- 14.14 for weight (they said it was 65% for weight, interesting haha)  and 25.5" and 88%. 

    ETA: She was 8.6 and 21" at birth.

  • Our son had his 4mo check up today (he's really 18wks) He's 19 lbs 4oz (97th percentile) and I can't remember the height (terrible right?) but it was like 67th percentile. My pedi said he's healthy and perfect..... and apparently huge!
  • At birth he was 8lbs 5oz and 21" long. 

    At his 4 mo appt (3weeks ago) he was 17lbs and 26" long.

    He's definitely grown since then. I also EBF him- powerful stuff right there. Lol. People are always commenting on "how big he is!!!" :-)

  • My baby is the same size and is on the 60 percent curve for both. 

    We are so thankful that our second daughter, Lillian Elizabeth "Lily", was born healthy and happy on February 11, 2013.  We love her to pieces.  

    We lost our first daughter, Hannah Grace on May 4, 2011.  She was buried on May 14 during a beautiful service at my home church. We are grateful that if she could not be here with us, that she is healed and whole with the Lord. We look forward to the day when we will get to meet her. We love her so much.


  • Your nurse is a spaz. Jussaying...
    14.4lbs 24.25 inches.
    Apparently her length growth is pretty slow but she's a little chunk and right on target.

  • I just took him, but now I don't remember! I know the weight was close to 17 lbs.  Both weight and height fell in the 85-90% range.  My DS1 has stayed in the 15% range his entire life, so we are shocked! :)

  • My DD is pretty much exactly the same size (25.5 in. and 14 lb. 3 oz.) at her 4 month check up, and looking at the WHO growth chart, it looks like it's closer to 55th percentile for weight. Crazy for my LO though, she was only in the 25th percentile for height two months ago! But she can fit in anywhere from 0-3 to 3-6 month sized clothes haha.

     It depends if they're using the WHO growth chart (for BF babies) or the CDC chart (for formula fed babies).

  • As of yesterday (18w 1d), DD was 13lb and 25.3 inches long. Percentiles .... I haven't been paying attention since her weight has been so slowly crawling up. As long as she is meeting her milestones, I'm a happy mama.
