My little man was born 9/14/09 at 6lbs 7ozs 39 wks 4 days, so pretty much full term. I always just thought he was little to begin with so no surprise that he has stayed little. However, at his 9 month check up he was 28 inches and only 16lbs 12ozs. The docs seemed pretty concerned about his low weight and now want to start running tests on him to see if there is a reason he hasn't gained a lot of weight. He drinks 4 bottles of formula per day - 6 ozs each, plus eats his 3 meals (of table food - whatever we eat) and about 2 snacks a day. He has 5 teeth, can crawl, stands with help from furniture, babbles, claps, and all that good stuff. So aside from his weight he seems fine. Anyone else having an issue with their baby gaining weight?
