Weight Gain Question

When do babies stop gaining weight so quickly? My lo is 15 weeks and weighs a little over 16 lbs. I was just wondering when the weight gain will slow down a bit.

Actually, I think my son stopped gaining so quickly around that time. He weighed 16.5 at his 4 mo check up (I remember thinking he was going to weigh 20 pounds at 6 months), but when the 6 month weight-in came - he was 18.11. Scary isn't it - wondering if you have a little giant on your hands???

I would like to know too. My ds was 9lbs 2oz at birth and at 8 weeks he is 16lbs! He is b___stfed exclusively so I don't know what is going on. He already wears size 6 months clothes!

I don't know either. My ds was 8lbs 7oz at birth & now weighs almost 16 lbs at 17 weeks. I think (hope!) we are all in the normal range.

If your LO is big... they might continue to be big... my dd was born at average size 7lbs 11oz. At 4 months she was 16.5lbs. Shes now 7 months, 23lbs and her pajamas are a size 2. She isnt showing any signs of slowing down... although Ive heard they do drop some weight when they start walking/running....
