Babies: 3 - 6 Months

How big??

I was at lunch with friends Saturday and they brought their beautiful one year old DD.  I mentioned that Vivi had the same onesie their LO was wearing and then I asked what size she was in and how much she weighed - their DD is 20 lbs at a year old . . . my Vivi is 15.5 lbs and not even 4 months old yet.  It made me feel like I have a porker on my hands . . .

  • DS had his 4 month appt on Friday, and he's 17lbs 11oz. Dr said my chunky monkey is perfectly healthy.

  • DS1 was 22 pounds at a year. On the smaller side, but not tiny.

    DS2 was 15 and a half at 4 months.

    ETA their weigh gain slows as they get older, especially as they become more mobile.


  • DD will be 4 months on Wednesday and she just hit 13lbs.  She was teeny at birth though (4lb9oz) so we are pleased with 13lbs.  It's really hard to tell at this point how much they will weigh at a year, their weight gain slows way down.

  • My son is 15lbs 3 oz at 4 months and he is apparently only in the 48th percentile so I think your little one is right on track!!!
  • Heh...I wouldn't worry. DS is 15 lbs 8 oz and 25 inches long. Every kid is different, and I try not to compare my little guy to other babies. As long as he is happy and healthy, that's all that matters to me. Smile

  • DD1 and DD2 were both 15 lbs at 3 months and 22.5 and 23.5 lbs at 1 year. That's about 90th percentile on the WHO charts at both 3 and 12 months. Growth starts to slow down the 2nd half of the year.

    DD3 is 11 lbs 10oz at 3.5 months, which is 10th percentile. (At this rate she'll be 17 lbs at 1 year!) She's about 25-26", which is about 95th percentile for height.

  • DD was 16 lbs at 4 mos, but didn't make it to 20 lbs until after she was a year old. Once she started getting more mobile, she started losing her chub. DS was in 12 mos clothing at 4 mos and is still in it at nearly 6 mos. This has been his longest stint in a single clothing size.

  • My DS2 weight in at 16 lbs 6 oz at his 4 month appointment.  Contrast that with his 3 year old brother who only weighs 29 lbs 2 oz, LOL.  As long as she is following a good curve and staying on the charts then she's fine.
