Makinna went for her 6 month check up today and wow is she a big girl. She is 27 inches long and 20 pounds. She is in the 92nd percentile for her height and the 97th percentile for her weight. My friends daughter is 1 year and weighs 22 pounds, and another friend her daugher is 7 months and 17 pounds. I guess they are all different and unique and growing quickly.

It all depends on the genes, our six month old is 21 lbs and 29 inches long. It all depends on the family. As long as the dr says he is healthy you are good.

Jakoby was 7.8 pounds and 20.1 inches at birth. At 6 months he was 21.1 pounds and 27.4 inches.

In metric, that's 3.54kg/51cm @ birth and 9.6kg/69.5cm @ 6 months.

my Genna was 13lbs 9oz and 25" long at her 6mo check up on Feb.15th. She was 6lbs 1oz 19" at birth, compared to others her age she at the low end of the growth scales but following it perfectly. She has a very good appetite and always has..however her cousin is 1 month older than she and is 20 lbs and 25" and barely eats half of what my little one does. She's just a slow gainer.. a trait she will very much appreciate when she is older if she gets to keep it! lol.

My daughter turned 6 months on Feb.14th. We had to reschedule her 6 month checkup for Mar.5th because of the weather. She weighed 21lb 11oz and is 27.5 inches long. She's in the 95th percentile overall. Her weight is around the 99th, height around 91st. She's my big chunky beautiful girl.

My little man went for his 6 month check up and was 19.5 lbs and in the 76th percentile. Now that I read these other posts im not too worried that he is too big! I think that the charts might be outdated!!! He was a teeny baby. He was only 6 lb. 2 oz. He loves to eat though! If he's hungry, he gets fed!!! Im not worrying that he is too big.....not yet at least :)

My little one turned 6 months last week, he's 14 lbs 13 oz and 26 1/2 inches long. Very petite, but he's behind because of reflux problems in his first 2 months, these are sorted out now and he's right on track on his growth chart.

My Chesca was born 3 weeks early and tiny at just nearly 5 lbs. She turned 6 mos. last Feb 28 and she's now weighing 15 lbs. at 26 inches. =) She's very active and takes in just 24 ounces of milk per day plus some solids. Well, I'm not really sure if she's taking in enough nutrients. Anybody has the same experience?

[deleted account]

My LO was 28 1/4 inches and 19.2 lbs that was at the beginning of the month. He's still growing. This weekend I measured him at 29 inches and 20.7 lbs. He's in 12 month clothes now and I expect he'll be in 18 month clothes in another month or two. He's exclusively breastfed too.

At six months (two weeks ago) my daughter was 8.56kg (18.87 lbs) and 71.3 cm (28 inches). Apparently she's off the charts for her height (over 97percentile), in the 90 percentile for her weight, and 95 percentile for her head circumference... In proportion and definitely growing healthily. I looked at the height chart and the line for average babies shows that they (average babies) wouldn't normally be this tall until 9 1/2 months old, ha!

No worries my daugther is six months old as well and she weighs 20 lbs. She is also 29 inches long so she is in the 95th percentile for height and weight. The doctor says that's it's just her genetics and that she is not overweight but perfectly porportioned for how tall she is. Same is probably true for your daugther the are all unique and created from different molds.
