One of my twins has gone from a birth weight of 4lb. 11oz to 19 lb at five months (off the charts). The other twin weighs 16 lb. and is in the 50%. They have similar height (50%). They eat the same (around 30 oz.). The only difference is that the bigger twin is taking roughly half of her 30 oz. from breast milk. The other twin refused the breast and I don't have enough to fully feed even one of them because of a variety of complications at birth and with my health.
They are happy and healthy. Both my husband and I are on the slim side. I'm freaking out because of this unusual weight gain. Our ped is befuddled and has referred us to a specialist. Any body has experienced anything like this?
