I am just wondering at 5 months old, how much your babies weighs, and how much they weighted at birth. I took my son in and he was 14lbs 13 ozs. At birth his weight was 7 lbs 11 ozs.

Just thought i would post again to reiterate what Jessica has said. Yes all babies are different, slow weight gain for one baby can be totally normal for another.
My little boy was born 3.5 kg or 7lb13oz, at almost 5 months he was 5.3kg and at almost 6 months he is just under 6kg (13.2lbs). At 6 months I was only 6kg. He is fully breast fed, and has been through having formula top ups to see if he would gain more, and it made no difference. He is just going to be little like his mum!
He can sit unassisted, has been able to stand against something since 5 months, and has hit every developmental milestone for his age. Not to mention how absolutely gorgeous he is!! lol.

Gabe was born August 23rd...28 days early. He was 5 lbs 15 oz and was 19 in long. Today he weighed in at 15.2 lbs and was 25.5 in long. He is in the top 25th percentile.



Remember weight and height are different for every child. It really depends on their birth size and then it depends on genetics. You can not base your child's growth on the development of other children. The best way to know that you child if growing properly is to ask their pediatrician to show you their growth chart.

Kierra is now 12lbs 15oz today which is wonderful for her because she started out almost 8 weeks early at 3lbs 3oz..... I'm so happy for her and it seems even though she was premature she is almost up there with the rest of the babies born in the same month.

Sounds like we both have smaller babies! My son is also 5 months old and 14 lbs...he's in the 7th percentile! (He too was 7 lbs 8 oz at birth) The doc says he's totally fine, just smaller! What does your doc say?

My daughter was born Aug 13th and weighed 9lb 6oz. She is now just over 5 months old. I got her weighed at her last appointment about 4 weeks ago and she was 14lb 1oz and 25 1/8 inches long. I thought that she was going to be a really big baby for the rest of her babyhood but it would appear that she is quite average for her age.

My boy is like Laurie's. He was an average size at birth -- 7lbs 11 oz. Now, at precisely 5 months old, he's 19lbs 8oz. And he's gone from 20 inches long to 28 1/4 inches long. He's outgrowing sleepers at an insane rate!

My daughter was born on 8/18/09. She seems small compared to some of your babies. Sounds like everyone has nice healthy little ones.

My baby was born early on the 28/8/09, he was a tiny 5lb 2ozs. He discovered the joys of eating and is now a hefty 19lb 12ozs. He's hungry all the time and while sleepsuits, vests, tops and trousers still just about fit, he hasn't been able wear any of the lovely dungarees because I couldn't get them done up around the side. As long as he's happy and healthy who minds.

My daughter weighed 7 lbs 1 oz, and as of yesterday (with clothes and a wet diaper) she weighed 18 lbs 2.5 oz... However, at her 4 month check up she was 16 lbs 1 oz. She is definitely a chunk!

My boy was born Aug 17 at 9lbs 20 1/2". Last week at 20 weeks he weighed 20 lbs and was 28". They told us he was off the charts for weight and height - over the 100th percentile. He isn't fat being that he is so long. My husband and I are both tall people and slender/avg for weight.
