My son recently had his 4 month checkup as well and was nearly 21 lbs and 28 inches long! He is a big boy! wearing 9-12 mo clothing and almost too big for his carrier car seat. He was breastfed and supplemented with formula for the first 3 months and is now soley soy formula fed and has recently began cereal and veggies. He's always been a hungry boy, hence his size!

My son's 4 month checkup was on May 9th, and he weighted 19lbs 11oz, and measured 28inches!! Hes always been a little piggy, ever since day one! He is a very active baby though, so no doubt itll burn off in no time once he starts crawling, which he does, but backwards!

When Ellie went for her 4 month check up she was 15 pounds 4 ounces and 23 inches long. She was in the 87th percentile for her head, 84th for her weight and 9th for her length. LOL. She is like a little butterball turkey. Short and Fat!

My daughter just had her 4month check up she was 13lbs 10 ounces, they said it was only the 15th percentile. She was 24 inches long in the 60th percentile and to the other mom my little girl can still wear some 0-3 month clothes also

Seems that there are lots of different weights and lenghts which is great... My daughter went tuesday for her 4 month check up and needles and she was 14 lbs 14 oz and 25 1/2 inches long.. By the posts on here guess she is right where she should be..

My daughter was only 12 lbs. 12 oz. ...only in the 35th percentile. Doctor didn't show any concern, but reading all your replies, I guess she is small for her age although that was at her 4 month check up and she is 5 months now. Not sure how much she weighs, but can tell she has added some weight...getting those cute chunky baby thighs :) Plus she started sleeping through the night a week ago...YAY!

Chrystal, Your baby should double their weight by the six month check up. My daughter was born on January 25. She was 8'9 when she was born. At her four month check up she was 16lbs 6 ouches and is 24 3/4 inches long. So your baby is a tad bit bigger but, I wouldn't worry too much. Your baby will lose the weight once they start crawling.

I'm so glad other people have little CHUBBY boy's to....My little boy Just turned 5 month's old a few day's ago, when he was at his 4 month ck. up he weighed 17 lbs. 2 oz. 25 inch's long, I had to take him back to the doctor about 2 wks. ago for a sick visit and he weighed 18 lbs.11 oz....I'm sure he would weigh in to about 19 lbs. now, MY BACK and ARM"S ARE ABOUT TO BREAK!!! haha

My daughter just had her 4 month check up and she was 13 lbs 9 oz (between the 50th and 75th percentile which is normal)...but 'I know someone else who breastfeeds as well and her baby is only 3.5 months and she is already 17 lbs (95th percentile)! She looked a little chunky for that age...but they say you can't feed your baby too much breast milk....if you are feeding him formula or something, just ask the pediatrician if you are giving the right amounts...I just started supplementing with some formula and rice cereal - she wants to eat all the time because she is growing so fast. I think every baby has their own rate of growth; my brother was born at 10 lbs, so I don't even want to know what he weighed at 4 months! He is now 6 feet tall and skinny!
