Anyone else with a 4 month old???
 
I just took a online survey and according to the online survey, my son is humungous (sp?) and wwaaayyyy too big.

Just courious how much do your babies weigh?

My son is 4 months old and weighs 17 lbs. He is 26.5 inches long.

my son was just weighed last week. he's 4 months one week and he weighs 16 lbs 1 oz and is 27 inches long. he is in the 90th percentile for hieght and in the 75th percentile for weight. he is tall and lean the nurse said. so your son sounds proportioned. my son also weighed 10 lbs 14 oz at birth.

My first was huge at 4mo :) 18.4oz at his 4mo appt...and now 23 months later, he's still big for his age (so they say)...everyone thinks he's 3-4 yo...and he's just barely 2. My 2nd was about 12lbs at 4mo...MUCH different.

my 4month is 14lbs and 24.5in long....i think of my 3 he's the smallest (older 2 are 7 and 11) AND he's been my only breastfed baby! at birth he was 6lbs 9oz....so so far he is by far the smallest on this thread :mrgreen:

i wouldnt worry about it--he may just gain rapidily now and then slow down and thin out when he gets more mobile!!

Mine just turned 4 mos the 10th. He's 15 lbs & that's no ginormous... b/c my 2.5 yo was 24 lbs at the same age! :)

Thanks mamas. The site I went to (I know.. I know... I shouldnt believe everything I read) said that because my son is sooooo big (again... 17lbs, 26.5 inches) that he could be at risk for childhood obesity and childhood type two diabetes.

that kind of stuff just frightenes me to death.

My DD is 4 months and at her 4 monther she was 13.5 lbs and 24 inches long.

I met a woman who has an 11 WEEK old that weighed 15 lbs at his 8 week appt!! Now that's a big baby boy!! :lol:

I wouldn't worry too much. He's a growing boy :)

The little boy I babysit is 4 months, 2 weeks... he weighs just shy of 20lbs and is 26 inches long. He's a big boy!

That's your 4 month old in your avatar? He looks like a perfectly normal healthy baby! you just can't pay any attention to things like that. Anyplace that says the size of a 4 month old baby will tell you he may be overwieght later on is just crazy. Don't us mom's have enough to worry about.:hugs:
