Wow! 24 lbs!! My dd is only 3 mos, so I can't really respond to your question, but just wanted to comment. Congrats on your big boy. :-)

My dd recently had her 6 month check-up. I do remember her 4 month visit going pretty smooth as far as the shots were concerned...maybe slight fever. Her 2 month shots affected her the most..fever for 2 days straight and she was cranky. I hope your big guy is doing well :)

Wow! 24 lbs! We had our 4 month check up today and my daughter weighs 12 lbs 11 ozs and is 25 1/2 inches long. She did better on this shots this time than last. She only screamed at the 4th shot and then only for a minute or two. She's now sleeping like a baby.

Wow, that's a big boy. My son weighed 19 lbs. 2 oz. at 4 months and he was huge compared to others his age. After 4 months my son slowed down in his rate of gaining and is now 26 pounds and has been between 24-26 for a few months. He's still high on the charts for height and head cir. but his weight is now 75 %. I think once he started crawling he stopped eating as much. Too many things to see and to get into for him.

My little girl had her 4 month check up on Monday. She was 12lbs 13 oz and 25 1/2 inches long. She was only 5.5 at birth. She had a bad night after the shots, fairly high fever, not cranky, just sleepy and fever. But she was fine the next day.

wow!!!!! 24lbs!!!!! what a "healthy" supply of milk you possess! i was shocked to read you b___stfeed...my son was 14lbs at his 4 month appt. and 25 inches. glad to hear he's okay after his shots.

thanks ladies......yeah i have quite a healthy milk supply.My husband says the prenatal vitamins i take must be like miracle-gro! We started feeding him some solids at diiner time-so far sweet potatoes, peas, and green beans. he loves it! he isn't even 5 months old yet and he has two teeth and one more that just popped thru last night! sometimes i wish he'd slow down! i am happy he is thriving though.

My ds was 19 lbs 8 oz at his 4 month checkup, and they said he was off the charts. Myriah, your poor back must be breaking! I need to transfer my son to the regular car seat this week, because he is now too heavy for the infant carrier.

Congratulations on your healthy little boy-you must have some rich milk! My daughter just had her six month appointment and she reacted pretty bad this time. Her four month she got a slight fever and that was that.

My little one just had her 4 months shots yesterday. She is 12 lbs and 14 ozs, and 25 1/2 inches long. She has been so cranky!!! I feel horrible because I can't console her. Her 2 month shots were a breeze compared to these!! You have a healthy baby; congratulations!!!

Hello everyone. My little Ethan is 2 1/2 months and he weighed 14lbs and 6 oz at 2 months. Any other babies weigh that much at 2 months?


Nerdy Girl - April 10

Yes, Cae. My son was 14 lb 8 oz at his 2 month check up, and was 19 lb 8 oz at his 4 month check up. You are gonna have yourself one BIG BOY! My son was 9 pounds at birth, but my daughter was 10 pounds at birth. I just looked at the weights recorded in her baby book, and this little guy is growing so much faster than her. I really cannot believe it.


HannahBaby - April 11

holy c___p!! Did your doctor say anything about your child weigh?? my daughter weighed almost 15 lbs at that age and my dr ripped me a new one.....Your 4 month old weighs more than my 15 month old.....


Nerdy Girl - April 11

No, my doc did not say anything negative about my son's weight. What do you mean "ripped you a new one", HannahBaby? What did the doc tell you to do -- cut back on the amount you feed her? I guess I am wondering how you do that without having a screaming miserable baby. I wish my son was not so heavy because honestly, he is just breaking my back. He is still a typical 4 month old who cannot sit up yet and needs to be carried everywhere, but he's just much biggert than most 4 month olds. But it's not like he is a total buddah-baby or anything. He has a round face, but a regular looking body. My kids are just genetically big I guess. My daughter is 3 now and is in a little cla__s through the park district for kids ages 3-5. She is the only 3-year-old in the cla__s, and she is the tallest one in the cla__s, much taller than the 4 and 5 year olds.
