She was born 7-13 at 2m check she was 12-12. So it is pretty close to being doubled already. I am nursing too.

I'm glad I'm not alone. I just had my daughters 2 month check up last week and was surprised at how much she weighed in at. She was 7.6lbs when born and is now 16lbs. I compared her weight to her older sister and she weighs the same as her older sister when she was 6months. Its werid puttng my 2 month old in 6-9 month clothing. When they say they grow fast I wasn't expecting.....that fast!

My son had doubled his birth weight at 2mths 'n has continually been gaining about a pound a wk. His birth weight was 6lbs 10oz, and he'll be exactly 3mths on the 9th and he's already 15lbs.

my 2 month old was born 6 pounds eleven ounces and when we went for her 2 month checkup last wednesday she was 10 pounds 14 ounces. almost doubled. but the doctor said she was fine. it could be because she is 24 inches long as well.

Got my little one weighed today and she's just over a pound under doubling her birthweight. She's only 10 weeks. Every baby grows at there own rate.Wouldnt pay to much attention to the books. You'd worry all the time. As long as they are healthy then its fine :-)

my son is 11 weeks today, got him weighed last weeks and he was 1oz of doubling his birth weight, as long as your baby is happy and eating well then dont worry, its all about statistics these days and it drives me mad

My son doubled his weight at 4 months and my daughter doubled her weight at 6 weeks. Think if they are heathy and happy then its a good sign that they are growing well. Hope this helps
