    Default How much weight?

    How much has your 2 month old gained since birth. Mine will probably be at 9.3 lb at 2 months on Oct 11 based on how she has been gaining.

    My little guy was 8lbs 10oz at birth and gained weight fast...at his 2month appt he weighed 15lbs! He has since slowed down a bit. I think its hard to predict what they will weigh in the future.

    MY DD was 7 3 at birth, but she's a slow gainer. Ped says she's fine and that all breastfed babies are not chunky. My husband and I are both tall and lean so genetics play a part. Would it help if I ate certain fats? I don't drink much milk..do you?

    My DS was born at 7lbs 3oz as well! At 2 months he was 11lbs 5.7oz and at our 4month check up (last month) he was 13lbs 8.8oz. He's a little peanut at 25.5" long and the dr was a little concerned, but not too much. Some babies are just long and thin and others are cute little chubbers!!

    I just took Noah to his 2 month appointment Monday! At birth he was 7lb 5oz and at 2 months he was 11lb 6.5oz. Doc said he was in the 50th percentile and just slightly above average for his height (23 inches)
