Sara's Good News

"My good news is that my son born on March 19th is doing awesome :) Like another poster, he is almost 21 pounds and 26 inches long. He was born at home after a quick easy labor weighing 7.4, so he's come a long way in such a short amount of time!"

Love it! Thanks so much for sharing with us, Sara.

A baby should be twice his birth weight at SIX months, triple his birth weight by a year. Further, all a child's fat cells are laid down in his first year; in later life he doesn't get more fat cells but the ones he has get bigger. You should check with your pediatrician, but to be 3 times his birth weight when only 4 months old is a harbinger of problems to come. More, in this situation, is not necessarily "better".

Antigonos, sometimes you just make me chuckle. What in the world would you do with a completely breastfed baby? Put them on a diet? C'mon. That's just absurd.

My own kids did not follow your "rules" and they are all perfectly wonderfully healthy adults. Meghann was 10#6oz... you think she should have been 30 pounds at a year? I don't think she was 30# at 2.5! (If I recall correctly.) I know she only doubled her weight at a year. Sam with the other two who were smaller at birth; they just didn't gain what you're saying the babies should.

Completely baby-led nursing babies know exactly how much to take in and when to stop eating. Trying to follow any chart is ridiculous until they are eating solids... and even then, if they are getting the majority of calories from bm, they're doing just fine.

Don't pay any attention to her, Sara.
