How much did your baby weigh at 3 1/2 almost 4 months?

My son Noah was hospitalized a month or so back due to a very low weight gain from his first month check up to his second month check up. It was probably only 5 ounces or so. He was born February 5th weighing 7lbs 1oz, so he's almost 4 months & still only weighing in at 12 pounds.. The doctors are happy that he's gaining weight but still aren't completely satisfied since he's still so small.. I know every baby is different, but I was just wondering some weights of children around 3 1/2 months.. Thank you.

My son was born Feb 6 weighing 5 lbs 13 oz, he was almost 4 weeks early. He now weighs 15 lbs. But I am a RN and technically babies are supposed to double their weight at 6 months and triple it in one year, so according to this my son should be almost a year old by now! LOL I would try a different peditrician, as long as your baby is healthy and continues to gain weight, there should not be a big concern. Good Luck!

Haha. It's definitely good that he's growing though! :) I wish the doctors would stop worrying about my son. They thought that he too big of a head since his head was in the 75th percentile, & they were concerned that he had too much pressure on his brain. So many things that they preach to you. Haha.

Well, he is 17 lbs 14.5 oz, and 28 1/2 " tall !!! The weight is just as I expected, but I can't believe he has grown 6 1/2" since birth!!

Well, I get to find out for sure tomorrow, but I expect my Nathan to weigh in at that 18 lb range and i'm sure he has to be at least 26" tall...he is 17 weeks old, so still technically 1 week short of 4 months. I am just 5' 3", and my husband is 5' 10". His brothers are all over 6' tall, but my family is all relatively on the short side. I do take into account that my little man was 10 lbs 10.5 oz at birth, and 22" long. I think he looks just perfect and healthy :)

I shouldn't have a thing to worry about :) They finally are having Noah on a regular doctors appointment schedule. He was coming in every 2 - 3 weeks to get his weight checked. Now that he's had his 4month check up, he isn't due until his 6month! Yayy! :)

THANK YOU everyone for all the input you gave me. :)

My little guy was born Feb 7th and weighed 7lbs 10ozs and he weighs 13lbs now and his doctor seems pleased. When my first born was 4 months old he only weighed 10lbs, he was born weighing 5lbs 3ozs. I wouldn't be too concerned as long as he is continuing to gain weight and he is happy, don't worry :o)

my daughter was born Feb. 28th at 6lbs 15oz and at her 2 month was 10lbs 4 oz. not sure what she's at now she has a check up at 4 months (the end of June) honestly if the doc is happy do not fret as long as he is not losing than you are good. All babies are different my daughter weighed at 2 months what my son weighed at 4 months and both are healthy happy babies (19 months and 3.5 months)- my son was always in the 10th % but is now 27 lbs and doing great
again head up you are doing great!!! keep up the good work momma!!

My daughter is about 13.5 pounds at 4 months.



ETA - The above weight was my assumption based on weighing Mariama with me.

At her doctor's appointment on Monday she was 12.1 lbs.

My son was born on February 9th weighing 8 lbs. and 13 oz. at his 3 month check up he weighed 18.2 lbs. and 25.5 inches long. He's a big guy, but remember every baby is different. He blows my other two away when they were this age. :)

Noah was breast fed for only about a week or two. He latched on well, but the goods couldn't take the sucking. So in the end my nipples ended up tearing & by the time that they healed for him to be breast fed again, I had already dried up :(.
Thank you everyone for your posts. I think my doctors that I'm seeing are crazy.. I definitely don't understand why Noah would be considered "under weight". When he was hospitalized they said they he had "lost weight" instead of only gaining 5 ounces. I wish I could definitely find somewhere else to go with his medicaid..

Noah is also eating cereal at dinner time which is at 6 every night. More like 5:30 because he gets cranky. :). He has also been on a four hour feeding schedule ever since he got out of the hospital.. Since the doctors wanted to see him gain weight.

My new 'little guy,' Caleb, weighed over 11 pounds at birth, so he is up over 17 pounds already, maybe even close to 18. However, my first son, Aaron, gained weight much slower. Once he started solids at 6 months he took off! Are you close to offering Noah solid foods? I remember feeling relieved when Aaron like solids so much and started gaining weight! Hope that helps!

Maybe you need a new Dr! Brandi was born Feb 11th and was 6lbs and at her 2month apt she was 10lbs and they said she was doing good sounds like your baby is like all these others so it is weird.
