I was wondering how much did your baby weigh at 6 months my son is 18 lbs 14oz and 26 inches some people tell me he's small and others tell me he is big. I don't think its a problem when he was bon he was 5lbs 13oz and 20 inches

I personally think that as long as your doctor doesn't tell you that the baby is too small, i wouldn't worry... and also if you are not a tall person, and the daddy isn't a tall person, chances are, the baby isn't going to be tall... and for the people who tell you anything, they are just comparing it to themselves, of course if they are bigger people they are expecting to see bigger baby, babies don't come in a one size fits all.... ;)

Your son is just about what Elena was at her 6 months checkup. :) She weighed 18.7, and was 27 inches long. She's in the 90th percentile across the board, so she's definitely not small. Lol.

i don't remember off hand how much my baby weighed at 6 mo.... I know Vanessa was 8lb and 13oz when she was born.... and Victoria was 9lbs 0.5oz when she was born.... they were both the biggest babies there at the time, and no i didn't have gestational diabetes... they were just big healthy babies. at 6 mos they were decent sized... they weer not fat... but they were tall babies... when i took vanessa out at 3weeks old people thought she was 3 MONTHS old... I laughed... i said no, may baby is just BIG.... she could stand up and hold on the the couch at 3 months old... i have a picture of her doing it... and she walked at 9 months, close to 10 months....
