My little girl Isla Sienna weighed 7lb 5 oz at birth and now at 6 and a half months she weighs 20lb 4oz!!! She weighs as much has her 1 year old cousin, she is on the 98th centile line on her growth chart, but seems happy, healthy and contented. I know she will probably loose some weight once she is crawling about and i'm i'm not too worried about it, however i would just like to know how much your babies weigh and how much they weighed at birth. xxxxxx

My son was born at 37 weeks 5 days, October 27 (now 7 months old). At his 6 month check up, he as 16 lbs 3 oz, 26 1/4". He was right in the middle for percentages. His cousin that is exactly 3 months younger than him just went in for his 4 month check up and was 16lbs and 26"! He is gonna be a big kid, although he doesn't look chunky, he won't be getting many hand-me-downs and may end up being the other way around!

My little boy Ethan was born at 37 weeks on 12th October weighing 5lb 6 1/2 oz. He was weighed at the Paediatricians today and weighed 15lb 12oz. His weight gain has now slowed a little as he is on 3 solid meals a day (homemade yummies) and we have reduced his milk intake (at his hungriest he was drinking 8x 9oz bottles a day).

Boden was born at 41 weeks and weighed 9lb 4oz! At his 6 month check-up, he was 17lb 6oz. He lost over a pound the day after he was born and had trouble gaining it back, which resulted in many doctors visits for weight checks the first few months! Now he will eat pretty much anything you put in his mouth!

hi just reply to your comment...well my baby girl is 26lb and shes 61/2months old. Ive been told by my plunket nurse that she is as heavy as a 1yr if not more which is true because i have a nephew who is 14months and is a little heavier then my daughter but not by much which is alil scary but i feed her normally and shes healthy so like what you said maybe once they start crawling maybe the pounds will start coming off...

WOW.....reading everyones responses makes me think my little girl is a porker......she was 7lbs 6oz at birth and now at 7 months she is 22lbs 3oz...which is over the 98th percentile....and she is 70cms long which is over the 98th percentile too......but she doesn't look chubby....i think because of her height she pulls it off.....although she does have her mummies thighs the poor little thing

Lesley, I don't think it's a good idea to enrich your breastmilk with anything, especially not formula which is highly allergenic. A knowledgeable lactation consultant would tell you this. At this point, if you're really concerned, I would just nurse her more often, making sure she's getting a good latch each time. She sounds like she's doing fine, just on the small side. Those charts are for formula fed babies, who are often over fed. See

my son weighed only 14lbs. 3oz. on his 6 month check up...he's very tiny, but was only 6lbs. 11 oz. He eats all of the time though, so I am not worried.
