Question How much does your 4 month old weigh?

I am asking becasue every one is always saying how tiny Lilly is. Asking if I'm sure she's eating enough and if she's growing properly. Yes, she's eating as much as she wishes (which is 3 ozs every 3 hours or so) and she seems to be growing fine by my standards. She's only been to the doc twice and once was for a cold. I weighed her the other day and she was 13 pounds even with her clothes on (longies, tee and a Medium PW). Does that seem small? She was 7#12ozs at birth. Here's a pic of her yesterday ~

It could be kinda little, but she could just be a petite girl, kwim?

Nathan was 18lbs at 4 months, starting out at 8lb 9oz, but he's just huge! 95%ile in everything! lol

You can check her against a growth chart (girls are normally smaller than boys), but don't go so much WHERE she is on the chart (%ile), but more if she's growing on a curve.

BTW, she's a CUTIE!!!

I think she is adorable.
dd weighed 22 pounds at 4 months, but she was ridiculously, off-the-charts huge.

Re: How much does your 4 month old weigh?

She's a cute, petite little girl. I wouldn't worry about the weight thing. If she's meeting all of her developmental milestones and she's happy, no worries. Those stupid charts get my undies in a bunch every time. Think if they had them for adults. Who'd really want to be in th 95th or even 50th?

Mine was 17 lbs and 26" at 4 months, but he's a soild little boy. All kids are different.

Re: How much does your 4 month old weigh?

your lil one is adorable!!! My dd is just a few weeks older...born in the beginning of august.

I agree with everyone else, as long as she's hitting her milestones she's ok!

My dd was 7.14 at birth and was 16.8 at her 4 mo. check up.

When my DS was 4 months old, he weighted 11lbs 15 oz and was 23 3/4 inches long. That's a nekid weight. He was 5 lbs 4 oz at birth.

our Lillies are 3 days apart. Mine was 8.10 at birth, and she is 14 or so now (I don't know for sure--she hasn't been for her 4mo check up yet.)I don't think your Lily is that small...someone has to fill out the lower portions of the charts, kwim? My first dd has always been about 20% for weight-that's just normal for her.
