How much did your LO weigh.. ~Mommyof3girls~ 3 kids; Ohio 2686 posts

At almost 4 months? My daughter is 15 weeks and weighed 14lbs 8oz when I weighed her earlier. She is ebf (no supplementing at all) and was born 8lbs 5oz but dropped down to 7lbs 10.4oz by a few days old. It took her 3 weeks to get back to her birth weight. Just want to know what to expect at her 4 month check up next week. Thanks!

My dd was 7 lbs 14 oz at birth (38 wks) and at 5 mos (sorry I can remember 4 mos) she was just barely over 13 lbs, I believe it was 13 lbs 1 or 2 oz.

6lbs 11oz at birth and around 10/11lbs at 4 months. She usually gained about a pound a month. Now at 8 months she's slowed down her weight gain.

How much does your DD weigh now? That's how mine was, she had a rough start and barely gained anything the first few months, she finally started gaining, but only a pound a month.

She's like 17 or 18lbs. She's busy crawling and burning calories so no matter how much she eats and nurses she stays at the same weight. Her pedi doesn't seemed concerned though.



ETA- she was EBF till 6 months. She still nurses on demand and eats as much food as she wants.

So she sounds pretty normal then?! And I shouldn't expect him to suggest supplementing at all? She was born at 39 weeks 6 days as well.
