I don't think so! My son was born the 22nd and weighs almost 18lbs. He was only a few days early! My others were like this too and they grew out of it!

my daughter just turned 3 months on the 13th and is 15, 12 ounces. my dr said nothing about her weight so i am not concerned. she is going to be tall though-90th percentile.

My little man is a giant. He was born Oct. 8 at 38 weeks. He weighted 8 1/2 lbs. At his 2 mo appt he was 15 1/2.  He has gained nearly 3 lbs a month since birth so I am guessing about 18 lbs, oh and he is breastfed. He was in the 100% for weight and 98% for height at 2 months.  He is so long that anything that is 1 peice is 12 months and he fills out every inch of 9mo pants. So we will trade those up soon too. Daddy is 6' 5" so we expect he is going to be bigger than dad.

my daughter was born weight just 6lb 4oz on the 10th of october ( she was small but the biggest or our three!!) she now weighs 11lbs. Id say the weight gain is comparitive to the starting point. Your baby started big and continues to be big. So long as shes happy and healthy dont worry.

My son was born at 38 weeks, Oct 22: 7 lb 7 oz. He is now 13 weeks old, and approximately 15.5 oz (as estimated by standing alone on a bathroom scale, then again holding him). His growth has slowed a bit, but for a while he was gaining a pound a week (exclusively breastfeeding).

My daughter was born at 3 days past my due date on Oct 27th (I had to be induced) and weighed 10lbs 11oz....she now weighs 15.6lbs and is 25 inches long.



Generally, full term babies are suppose to gain 2lbs per month from 0 to 3 month, 1 lb per month from 4 to 6 months, and half a pound a month from 7 to 12 months.

My daughter was born on oct. 6th two days past my due date weighing 9lbs 4 oz  she just got weighed today and is 15 lbs 2 oz.   I would not worry about the weight to much unless your doctor is worried about it.

My Little girl was born Oct. 14, 2008 at 8 pounds 14 ounces and she came three weeks early. My daughter is also 3 months old and 1 week and she already weighs 15 pounds. She has always been a big baby even in the womb from day one. So I wouldn't worry about it to much but you could ask her Dr. the next time you go in and see what she thinks.
