How chunky is your baby?

I think my little man's got everyone beat! He was born March 20th at 8lbs 7oz and 22 inches long. Now, at 10 weeks, he's 18lbs 1oz and almost 25 inches long. Only breastmilk for my guy and he's all smiles!! =) He's healthy and that's all that matters to me. I agree with Simone...there's no point in getting caught up in height and weight stats. As long as they're gaining weight and developing in every other way you should be a happy mama.

My baby boy was born March 12th,2010 weighing 8lb3oz. He is now 11 weeks and 2 days old and is 12lbs2oz. He is long and lean apparently and at a healthy weight. I think they say the guideline amount is about an ounce a day, or just under a pound a fortnight... but seriously it's so easy to get hooked on weight stuff and as long as your baby is happy and healthy and eating well she's probably fine your health visitor will detect any signs of unhealthy under/over weight issues straight away x Hope this helps :-)

My son Cayden was born March 4th and he was 6lbs 2oz, and when we left the hospital he was 5lbs 14oz. At his 2 month visit he was 11lbs and then we went back 2 weeks later (on the 24th) and he was 13lbs 2oz. He is getting big so fast!

My son was 9 lbs. 3 oz. at birth he went to the doctor when he was five weeks old for a rash that he had on his face and at that time he weighed 13 lbs. 2 oz. He goes in for his 2 month check-up on the first of June, and at the rate he is going I think that he will be around 16 lbs when he is weighed at that time.

My son John Bentley was born on March 4, 2010 he weighed 8lbs 2oz and was 20inches long.I was breastfeeding at the beginning but he was spitting up so he lost weight. At his 2wk visit he was down to 7lbs 13oz so i had to switch to formula and that wasnt an easy thing either he cant handle milk so i had to switch to soy. Since i made that change hes doing great at his 2 month visit he weighed 10lbs 13oz and hes still growing i can tell a difference every day!

My son was 7lb 7oz, 21 inches long when he was born and at our 6 wk checkup last monday he weighed 10 lbs and was 7 wks then (its hard to get appointments right on time with the doctors in my town as there are only 4 for the town). I take him for his 2 month needles on May 25th too but not to his doctor, there is a public health nurse here that does the needles and keeps a record of their weights and heights and everything.

Our Abijah(girl) was born on March 13,weighed 6lbs 12oz. and 19in long. Today at 2 months weighs 8lbs.8oz. and 22in long. She has had a hard time putting on weight, She is still pretty much only able to wear newborn clothes. The past 2 weeks she has been putting the weight on nicely so praying she keeps it up.

My little girl was born on March 31st at 2:50 i the morning
when they weighed her, she was 6 lbs 7ozs, two days later she dropped to 5lbs, 3 ozs but then at her 1 month check up was 8lbs 8ozs...
i read somewhere that for the first 6 months the baby should gain the average of 2.5 pounds and then after 6 months it's 1 pound a month
