Ashlee was born at 6lbs 11oz and it now 17lbs, everyone says she is big for her age, shes a little chubby but i dont think she is obese, shes really stretched out and is wearing 6 to 9 month clothes....how are your babies doing?

Don't worry, all babies grow at different rates. All four of mine were in the 95% and up at birth, and then gradually slowed to at around the 50th percentile. And if she is wearing larger clothes, it is because she is taller than 50 percent or so of babies her same age. My daughter Rachel, was 9lbs 15oz at birth, and at her four month check up, she weighed a little over 14lbs. So long as she is growing well on her own growth chart, she is doing great. Besides, her weight gain will probably really slow down when she becomes mobile.

becca was born april 23, weighed 7lb 10oz; 19 3/4"...at 7 months, becca weighed 14lb 14oz; 27 1/2"...she's at about 25th% for weight, 75th% for height: her doc said she's long and lean...she is just the right length for 6mo clothes, but still too skinny...dr doesn't seem too concerned that becca is so little, but did suggest we go up to 3 meals (solid food) a day....she still nurses regularly...refuses a bottle

I wouldn't worry so much about it, because she wil loss the weight when she starts to walk. My son was born April 2,2009 @ 7lbs-12ozs, and now he's 21 1/2 lbs and 8months. Yeah, he's a little chucky, but not obese. He's also tall as well. But now that he's crawling, and just now starting to stand up on his own, I now the weight will come off soon.

Timothy was born on April 7th, and weighed 8 lbs 2 oz (a whole pound and an ounce smaller than his older brother). At his appointment on Monday (Dec. 7) he weighed in at 17 lbs 14 oz. So apparently he's growing at an average rate. He also has 8 teeth already. He has reached several milestones that took his brother a little longer to reach.

I'm in the same boat. My Daughter was born April 7th at 7lbs 7oz and now she is 22lbs but not chubby at all. She is wearing 12-18month size clothing because of her height. Her daddy is 6'4" and everyone in her family is close to 5'9" or taller. It really depends on you and your family. If your doctor is not concerned then try not to worry about it. That is what helps me to ignore what everyone says, remembering that the DOCTOR says she is perfect in every way.

my daughter is 8 months old and weighed 17 lbs 5oz at her doc appointment 3 days ago...he says she is below avg but still in the "normal" range...she is also 28 inches long and in 6-9 month clothes. She has never been chubby which i think is sooo cute on babies so dont worry about it.

Leah was born 6lbs 11oz aswell, she was 20lbs at 6 months, she is very long, everyone tells me they should be this weight at 1 YEAR. maybe I am forcing her to eat too much she still has 4 bottles a day on top of cereal, fruit and veggies.

I think it's a nice size. I had my son April 8th weighing 8lbs 6oz. He now weighs 21lbs. he's wearing size 9-12 months. The doctors don't colmplain and I feel like he's doing just fine. Every baby is different in my opinion. I wouldn't worry about it

Lizzie was born at 7lbs 7oz.. she is now 17lbs as well.. my pedia says she is 1lb overweight (her weight is for an 8-month old), but that it's ok so no need to worry.. Other relatives reassure that there would be lots of opportunities for her to shed it off when she gets really active later on (walking and running) :)

I would look at where her height is on the chart (in the UK it's in your baby's health record). if her height is comparible with her weight, she's not overweight.

My baby is 7 months and weighs 23 pounds! The doctor does not seem worried though because she is reaching all her milestones and her length and head width is in proportion with the rest of her body. Don't sweat it too much...my older kids were HUGE babies and at 5 and 6, they are perfectly average size. Feed that baby when she wants and take advantage of the great cuddle time you two can share right now!

Aw you're kiddo isn't obese at all! My girl Avery was born 6lbs 14oz and was 7 lbs 2 oz when we left the hospital 3 days later! Healthy eater yes!



She now weighs 17lbs and is 28" long. She's far some obese but does have those fantastic baby rolls that make her arms and legs look like someone put rubber band around a fluffy pillow to make joints. Lol



She was born April 23rd btw so she's 1 day over 7 months.

Tempest was born on the 24th at 6lbs even. She weighed in at her 6 month appt at 12lbs 10oz. We just put her in 3/6 month clothes. She is a petite thing, but I doubt she'll get too chubby as she's moving now so we'll see.

My seventh month old is 15 lbs. 8 oz. but I have many friends who have 3-month-olds weighing as much or more than her! It's completely normal. Mine is just about to outgrow 3 to 6 clothing so she's a little small. She was born 6 lbs. 3 oz. on April 17.

When she was born I was on Methadone and thought that becuz of that she'd be small plus the fact that I couldnt take pre-natal vitamins cuz they made me sick...but she came out just fine and fat lol

I def. wouldn't worry about it. My son was born at 10 lbs 1.5 oz and is now 20 lbs 2 oz! He looks so much bigger then other kids his age and is wearing 12 months clothes. But he is not obese, he is a little chubby but healthy! I think it depends on your babies height as well.

Hi,my gorgeous girl weighed just under 12lbs when she was born. She was my Everest! Safe to say, the stretch marks came in abundance.

She is now 7 and a half months old and weighs 19lbs 11oz and eating very well. I have a feeling that she's gonna be a little worried when she gets pregnant and asks me how much she weighed.

My little girl Scarlett was 7lb,13oz when she was born (8 days late, on the 10th April) and I have always worried that she is far bigger than other babies her age and peope are constantly thinking she is older than she actually is. I had her weighed again today and she is now at 19lbs, 3oz. I love her just the way she is, she's my little chunky monkey hehe :D
