Re: Baby Weight?

What did your baby weigh at birth?

Personally, I think 17lbs is perfect for 6mos! They're typically supposed to triple their birth weight by 1yr (8lb baby would be 24lbs at 1yr, etc) but it all depends on your baby.
My 4th DS has always been in the lowest percentiles through his 1st & 2nd year but his Ped wasn't concerned since he is healthy and happy and continuing to grow on his curve. He's currently 26lbs and will be 3 next month but my 13 month old is already 24lbs! LOL
