    My DS put on 500g a week for quite a few months, he was a hugely chubby baby. I assumed that kind of weight gain was normal, and when DD who was a petite baby had much lower gains I was worried! Sounds like he is growing beautifully.

    Both my kids where born big (9p12 and 10p1) both packed on the weight in the first few months. Everyone was happy to see then put on a heap of weight.

    Then at about 4/5 moths my kids stop stacking on the kg and start getting taller and go from big chunky babies to tall lanky ones

    Busy bee I think its from untreated/unmonitored diabetes too. My friend in Fiji had gd and had a 4.7kg baby. Their diets are generally poor so I guess that plays a large part!

    Some people just have big babies.

    For me:

    DD1 - 4.11kg @ 40 weeks

    DS - 4.85kg @ 40+6

    DD2 - 4.07kg @ 38+3

    Didn't have diabetes during pregnancy. My first 2 have always been 80th-100th percentile or off charts for height, around 80th percentile for weight, although they are not overweight and at 5&3, I have not had them weighed for a while. DD2 was born big and gained weight quickly the first month or so, but after that, thinned right out. She is nearly 9 months and only just outgrown 000 clothing, and that's only because they're too short, they still fit her waist.

    Nothing to worry about it does slow down my DS was weighed at 10 days old and had gained 900g the dr was shocked and asked how often he was feeding, but we kept doing the same thing he is now 2.5yrs old and a happy healthy toddler he is just a big boy not chunky but tall so it's all evened out.
