How much did your baby's weigh at 5 months? My son will be 5 months on the 18th and he weighs 15lbs 12oz and my mother in law won't let it go she ALWAYS says how big he is and how he weighs to much!!!! OMFG I'm sooooo annoyed!!!! His dr said the average 5 month old should be around 16lbs for a boy. I'm sooo frustrated! Should I say something ?

There is no such thing as an obese baby babies grow at different speeds some babies grow more than others or longer than others.she shouldn't worry about how big or small your baby is.

When my little one was that age he was almost 17 pounds! He's a healthy growing baby boy! Don't let what anyone tell you he's over weight. If hid doctor says he's healthy that's all that matters

My son was 15 lbs 6 oz at 5 months. Just don't listen to her . All babies are different and gain weight differently. He's not overweight at all. My friend had a baby who is 4 months and he's already at 17 lbs. try not to let what she's saying bother you and maybe even pull up statistics to show her that your baby is at "normal" weight
