My daughter was born July 30 (9 days early) and was 7 lbs 6 oz, and 19.5 inches--as of Feb 1 she is 16 lbs 11 oz and 25.5 inches (I'm told 55th percentile for weight, 50th for height and 90th for head circumference). She's been formula fed for most of her life and just started tasting cereal two weeks ago.

My son was born on 26th July weighing 9lbs 9ozs. He now weighs 19lbs 2ozs. He's really chubby, but his weight and height have followed the percentiles he was born at and the midwives have said he is all in proportion. Formula feed since birth and eating solids 3 times a day.

Sabrina - my older daughter refused solids until 8mo, then took to them hesitantly. By 12 months, she was eating solids just as well as the babies we knew who had started at 4-6 months.

Hi Cecilia, My son Laurie was born 9lbs and he was a big boy, he just turned 6 months on 26th Jan and weighs 18.7lbs. Laurie was solely breastfed until about 3 weeks ago, Don't worry, all babies are different, I bet your little daughter is a gorgous healthy big baby, just like my Laurie. My first son weighed a lot less at this age, but he was born 6lb 9oz. I call Laurie my little chubby bub and he is gorgeous. He was born 54cm and is now 68cm and loving his food.

My daughter was born on july 7th and was 7lb 8 oz and is now 16lb 6 oz... which seems crazy since i hear all these other people with 18 lb babies, but she is SO fat! she has rolls and wrinkles everywhere. Maybe she is short? she seems a lot shorter than most babies her age.

@Laura.. I am giving Tyler 3-4 jars of baby food a day, on top of cereal & small table foods (gerber puffs, teether biscuits).. I weaned him from 8oz to 6oz, still gets 5-6 bottles a day.. doctor was fine, wic asked "why".. what do your doctors say? I figured 6oz is fine, since he's getting tons of food now.

Scotty was born July 7th - he's 21lbs and 32 inches. We had to wean him from breast milk at 6months because I had an infection that required major antibiotics. But - he is eating two stage two containers of food three to four times a day and only takes six six-ounce bottles during the day. He is now fitting (almost snuggly) in size eightteen months...

my baby was 6.11 and 20 inches....born july 21 and now he is only 15 lbs and 26.5 inches. he was only breastfed but the doctor told me to start giving him more food, and meat cause he needs to gain more weight. He seemed to lose interest in breastfeeding as his teeth came in.

My daughter is breastfed. She was born July 14th & weighed 8 lbs 13 oz. She had her 6 month checkup on Dec 30th & weighed 20lbs 7oz & 27 inches long. She was exclusively breastfed for 4 months now she gets cereal & babyfood as well. Breastfed babies are just bigger I think.

I'm not really into bragging or comparing kids.. I think every kid will do/grow on their own good time. But, my son was born July 13th, (he wasn't due until August 2) at 6.4lb & 19,.5in and had his 6mos checkup Tuesday. He was 14.15lbs & 25.5in.. and he is formula fed and started solids already.

My daughter was born July 10th weighing at 6lbs 11ounces 20in and at 6 months she is at 20lbs 24in and is formula fed and started solids at 5 months and cereal at 4 months. Started her on cows milk at 5 months but then she got a very bad cold for a month and I stopped giving her milk, but will start the cows milk again at 7 months, I was told better to start cows milk in winter, in summer babies get sick alot. I only give the cows milk 2 ounces with solids its not replacing formula, yet.
