Re: He lost weight at 6.5 mths :(

It is TOTALLY normal for a baby to lose some ounces when sick. His activity level is a definate factor too. You know he is burning calories when playing and when babies are sick their metabolism kicks in to help fight the I am sure he is fine. I wouldn't worry at all unless it becomes a pattern. My dd has always struggled with growth because of some stomach/medical issues. She would lose then gain, lose then gain and I had to fight very hard to get calories into her. Even at that there was no HUGE uproar about it, we just watch her very closely. Now, at 15 months she is 16 1/2 lbs, down from 17 1/2 at her first b-day. Now, of course there is alot going on to try and help her to gain, and fix the problems. But like I said, it has been an ongoing pattern for her.

My guess is your little guy may very well slow down in his weight gain just as all babies do when they get mobile.
