    My 20 week DS was 3.18 at birth and 6.54 around 17/18 weeks (he only gets weighed monthly). So not too dissimilar to your bub. He's between the 30th and 50th percentile (here in the UK) purely breastfed and nobody's commented. I agree with the other ladies, if he's happy, sleeping and plenty of wet nappies I think he's fine.

    My dd was not a big gainer either. She definitely did not double her birthweight by six months but was a bright, happy, content baby. She was born at 3900grams and was only 8 kgs at 10-12 months. My gp said that her birth weight may not have been a good indicator of her size (she said "she may have been a bit over healthy".....she was, she had thunder thighs at birth).

    Your DS at 18weeks weighs only a little less than my DD at 36weeks!

    She was 4.2kg at birth and was just over 7kg at 8mths. She is almost 9mths now. But I haven't weighed her for a while.
    Our gp isn't worried since she has been consistent with how much she puts on each week and how happy and otherwise perfectly healthy she is.

    Yep - my DD is 2.5yrs and only 10kg I'm not worried at all, just goes to show how different each child is.

    Birth weight 3.72kg, 17 weeks- 6.46, 18weeks- 6.51kg
    6.51kg - 3.72kg = 2.79kg gain over 18 weeks

    2790 g / 18 weeks = average 155 gram gain per week.

    Perfectly fine growth. i wouldn't be concerned at all.

    Are you and your partner big people?

    I agree with PP and think your son is growing just fine. If he is happy, healthy, feeding, sleeping and having sufficient wet nappies then I don't see an issue.
    All kids are different. My eldest only just doubled her birth weight by 12 months whereas my youngest more then tripled her birth weight by 6 months.

    Yep, so do I! If you're baby is happy, healthy, reaching milestones etc then don't worry.

    My son is 16 weeks and weighs 12lb 4 oz ( 8lb 5oz at birth).
