Yes my baby's name is Bradley and when we left the hospital he was 6.14
At 2 months he was 10 pounds, 4 months he was 12.1 and I just took him to the doctor's this past Monday and now is 13.13
The doctor really made me angry because with my first baby we went through the exact same thing with her weight and nothing was wrong with her. Now my son is breastfed and he is not keeping up on the weight chart and is being treated like something is wrong with him. He is 1% on THEIR weight chart!! He is a very healthy happy baby and is breastfed 6-7 times a day plus solids in-between. His input and output is fine.
I just need some support from other women who are going through the same thing.

Is he/she still growing? Is baby active and thriving and staying hydrated? Those are the things that are more important than where your baby falls (or doesn't fall) on the chart.
