It seems gigantic to me but my kids are very petite. How much did she weigh when she was born?

Asher is almost 5 months and is about 15.5lbs. He was 8.4 at birth and is EBF..we aren't doing solids till 6m. I think the weight is fine. :)

Once she starts crawling she'll lose some chunk...she'll even out :)

That sounds fine to me but my little girl is very big too. She was 8lbs 8oz at birth. 14lbs 4oz at 4 months, 20lbs 3oz at 6 months and 24lbs and 30.5in tall at 9 months

Quoting KyliesMommy2012:" My daughter is almost five months old (will be on the 27th) and last night we had to take her to urgent ... [snip!] ... but is that a good healthy weight? ETA: I feed her only when she's hungry and wants it. She also eats baby food 2x a day. "

Sounds on the bigger side for that age, but I don't think that's a big deal. It all evens out in time.
