Is this normal, lol? Seriously. DD is such a skinny mini- Barely 24 pounds at 2 years old. She was 6 lbs 10 oz at birth.

Gavin was 8 lbs 6 oz at birth and is 13 lbs at one month!!! My friend has a 7 month old who looks very healthy and hes 15.5 pounds!!!!

Is he destined to be a huge baby??? Maybe he will level off. I am not really concerned, but I find it funny the drastic difference between my two kiddos.

How much do your babes weigh at 1 month?

well he might indeed just be a big baby. A dear friend had a little one that was more than 25lbs in the first 6 months... now at almost 2 years, he's still the same weight - which looks normal on a toddler body. He was a big, super cute baby.

We are probably very close to the same size at 3 weeks, but we started out at 10lbs!

Sounds perfectly normal to me!
That's only about a lb. a week. He's probably just going to be a big guy. My DD2 was up to 24lbs. by 5 mos. old and just the cutest little chub!
Now at 2yrs. old she only weighs a lb. or two more and is just the right size.

My little guy is about 14lbs. and just turned a month old 2 days ago but like xixstar my little guy started out at 10lbs.

4.5 lbs in one month? Go baby go! That's fantastic! (Also, Go Mama go! You gotta be a nursing champ to get those results!)

My son had drastic weight gain like that starting out too. He kept it up till about 9 months, and then leveled off, and now (at 16.5 months) he's almost a skinny little kid.

My first was 10lbs at brith and was 16 lbs at 1 month...she is now 4 and weighs only 30 lbs...so she plained off at about 1 year old.

Olive was 8lbs 5 oz at birth and 3 weeks later is now 13 lbs, chalk it up to the good milk and genes...I expect her to plain off too though.

Yep...my 16" first baby was what really got me....I think she was a hospital record especially for a natural vaginal birth.

Oh yes. My DD was 7 lbs, 4 oz, and I thought I was going to burst in half.

Then, last month, there was Nathan, at 7 lbs, 8 oz. If I had not been at home, lunged over the side of the bathtub and pushing hard in a semi-squat, he'd have had shoulder dystocia, because for me, that's a BIG baby!!! (As it was, he didn't turn and his shoulder was momentarily hung up before I shifted slightly to allow the MW to maneuver him out of there!) And that is not even factoring in his 14" head!!

He was 9 lbs, 12 oz at 5 weeks.

DD was 8.7 at birth and 12.7 at a month, admittedly she was 22 inches long at birth so she needed the weight - I can't wait to see what she weighs next week at her 2 month visit!

dd didn't gain quite as fast, but ds was ridiculous. He was 8lb 10 oz. At one month he was 12 lb, at 2 mo he was 15 lbs, and at 3 he was 19.5 lb. But...he slowed down, too. Now, at 15 months, he's 22.5 . Those first few months, though, he grew so fast I felt like I couldn't get to know him...he changed SO rapidly!
