Your 7 Month Old

Brittany - January 17

Hey girls, I took my dd to the pediatrician yesterday for her late 6 month check up...she is 7 months today (ahhh where does time go lol). I never pay attention to the growth charts and I really don't like comparing her to other kids because all kids develop at different rates. I was just a little concerned with her weight though, she weighed exactly 14 pounds with a diaper on too. Her pediatrician was happy with everything else, she just said she'll keep an eye on her weight and she also wasn't super concerned because I'm a low weight for my height too. My dd was born at 5 pounds 7 ounces and her brother is also a low weight, he is 2 1/2 and weighs 26 pounds. They both eat well. I was just wondering what your 7 month/6 month olds weigh. I never pay attention to the growth charts for my kids too but in a way I feel left out in the percentile range lol.

I too took Marcy in a little later for her 6motnh check. Dec was way too busy. She was 6.5 motnhs and weighed 17lbs. My two and a half year old weighs 30lbs, She has since she was 2. The doc says both are good. They are in the 90% which doesn suprise me as they were both good size babies, My oldest was 9 lbs 12 oz and my youngest was 7 lbs 12 oz at birth. My oldest is 35 inches tall and i have no clue ho long Marcy was.....I wouldn't wory as long as she is gaining and is eating and having wet diapers and dirty ones every two days or so.. my kids are relitively lean (except marcy's little baby fat) but are on the heavier side of normal, yours will most likely always be on the light side of normal. ( at least till puberty, then it seems all bets are off- I was thin as a rail till I hit 13!)

My dd will be 12 mos on the 23rd, and only weight 19 lbs. Some kids are just small. DD was 14 lbs 7 oz at 6 mos.
