My LO was only 18 pounds at a year. As long as they're gaining weight and following their own growth curve

That seems low but I don't know for sure, both me and hubby are tall and so are our babies. My 11 yr old is 5'5" 120lbs and our 19m old is 3'8" 27lbs. Check with your doc.

My son was 18 lbs at 9 months and 31 inches. So your LO is probably in about the 40th percentile for weight. That's good.

Each baby is different. As long as the doc says they're good who cared what any others say.

Not really. As long as your dr isn't concerned. My first was 19lbs at 6mo and 21lbs by a year. Once they get mobile they stop putting on so much chunk

No I don't think so. My 7 month old is 19# 12 oz so that's right about average

Mm I have a boy who just weighed in at 18 for his six month BUT I don't know if we should expect different things for different genders. That weight put him at 55th percentile. At his 4 month check up however he was only in the 26th percentile so he had a quick growth spurt that put him where he needed to be. Maybe she will have something similar!

That's right on track because they told me the average 1 year old is 20 pounds so she said I could cut back his feelings if I wanted to cuz he's a chunk lol
