I was just wondering what some of the May '09 babies weigh. My daughter was born on the 15th and is formula fed. She is 14 lbs. She is also very long for her age. I am wondering about her weight b/c she is on formula. I would appreciate some of you letting me know what your babies weigh that were born around the 15th. I am a new mom, so I am always worrying about something. :) Thanks

My son was small when he was born, 5 lbs 7 oz, and 18.5 inches on May 19. At his 4 month visit, he was 13.4 lbs and 24.5 inches. I think his weight and length are fine, but some people have extreme reactions, "Only 13 lbs! He's tiny" others say he's fine. He's exclusively breastfed, btw.

Adam was born on 5/5 weighing 7#1 and 20". At his 4 mo.(&24 days) check up he was 15#8.5 and 24¾" long. He is growing beautifully. Not fat, and not too thin. He is following his curve really well and has accomplished everything a 4 m. should have. So happy with my little buddy!

Quoting Laura:

Wow im feeling really guilty right now a a first time mom. My daughter was born on the 8th of May she weighed 7 lbs at birth. But I was reading the previous post about how much are they eating on formula and my baby only eats 3 oz maybe 4 every three hours and doesnt sleep thru the night. And I weighed her on thursday and she only weighs 11lbs... she is 24 inches.. So tell me what can I do to make her eat more. Apparently its not enough cayse she isnt gaining enough weight. Im so upset right now



My daughter was born on the 21st and has slowed down gaining weight.  She only weighs 11lbs and some ounces also.  She is formula fed every 2 1/2 to 3 hrs 3-4 oz as well.  My baby has tummy troubles.  She has silent acid reflux and colic.  She drinks Alimentum and it helps some.  I am working hard to try and get her to eat more.  We see the ped. again on friday, I will post what she says.

My son was born on 5/13 and he weighs 16lbs 2oz and 25 inches long......the nutritionist called him "husky" lol His genetics played a huge role in his build, both sides of the family have large men in it so it was inevitable. He was only 7lbs 7oz when he was born...

My girl was born on the 7th ... she weighed 8.5 at birth and breastfed up until these last two weeks and now she does both and she is 25 inches long and weighs 13.6 pounds! The doc. said formula fed babies are usually a little heavier than breastfed babies but their pretty close! Hope it helps to ease your worries!

hiya my son was born on the 11th and he weighs 10lb 1oz, he's off the growth charts he's so light so we go by his corrected age which makes him just below the 25th centile. He's exclusively BF.

My daughter was born on May 7th and she is 14 pounds 6 ounces right now. She is also very long for her age. She is formula fed as well.

[deleted account]

My daughter was born on May 15th too:)
She weighs aprox. 12lbs and she has been formula fed from 2 weeks old, so I think 14lbs is a good weight.
What were you worried about hun, over or under weight?

My son was born on the 5th & he is about 14lbs. He is also around 26in long. He is wearing 6-9 month pj's & is getting too long for them. It's still baggy in the waist area. My pedia says that he is on the mark weight & height wise. I don't think you have anything to worry about. If you're really worried, call your pedia's office & consult with him over the phone.
