My 5 month daughter is just now growing out of 3 month sleepers, and people keep telling me that they're worried about her being so 'petite'. She was 13lbs 4oz at her 4 month checkup, and in the 50th percentile. I asked the dr about her weight then, and he said he was pleased. She was 8lbs 5oz at birth. I know my husband was about 16lbs at 5months (since my MIL was worried she looked it up) Everyone else I know who breastfeeds (which is not very many women) has chubby babies (or at least bigger than mine!!)
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
