Triple Birth Weight

Coreena - posted on 01/26/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi all, Jocelyn is very tiny for her age and is in the 10th percentile for weight. She was 9lbs 4oz at birth and has just doubled her weight at her 12 mth appointment. She is now 18lbs 11oz. Has anyone else experienced this. She eats alot of solids but was exclusively nursing up until the beginning of the month. I'm a little concerned as is the Dr because the guideline says that they should triple thier birth weight by a year. She eats tons, just doesn't seem to gain weight or length. She's only grown one cm as well from 9-12mths.

My son only gained 2 lbs from 9 to 12 months and he didn't grow any taller. He's now 21 lbs 5 oz and 29 in. He was 7lb 15 oz at birth, and he eats a TON! My ped didn't seem so concerned about the lack of weight gain as much as the lack of height gain. She said not to worry, just to keep doing what we're doing and we'll see where he's at at 15 months. She said it's not too uncommon to see a slow-down of growth once they're mobile...but it's hard not to worry!
