I am always worried my baby is getting enough breast milk to grow and gain weight. Just curious, how much did your baby gain in the first 5-6 months?

DD was 8 lb 7 oz at birth, 17 lb at 4 months, and 20lb at 6 months. So she gained 12 lb by 6 months.

My daughter was born at 7lbs 13oz and at 6 months she was about 12-13 pounds. She't just a tiny kid. Totally healthy.




Now at 17 months she's 20 pounds with all of her clothes and shoes on. Lol.
