DS was 12lbs 2oz & 23 & 1/2 inches tall at his 2 month. He's EBF & won't have a 3 month, he'll be seen at a 4 months though



Since your daughter was small you may just have small built kids, that & since your son went from breat to bottle that could play a part in it too

I think it's mostly that I just have small kids like you said. I was always small as a kid and so was DH, so I guess shouldn't be that surprised.

My dd wasnt 10 lbs till like 5.5 months old, 3 months she like 8 maybe 9 something. lol. She was 1 on monday and is 17lbs now, we always had weight issues and no one ver suggested rice cereals for her. Even if they did I wouldnt give it to her.
But at 4 months I started real oatmeal that I made in my slow cooker the night before, she ate that till 5.4-6 months then straight to table foods.

Some kids are just small. My now 4 yr old was 24lbs at 4 months old and is 4.5 yrs old now and 28lbs.....unless lo drops weight I wouldnt worry at all.

Yeah exactly. He hasn't lost any weight and seems to be gaining decently. He was only 7lbs 5oz at birth.
