My son weighed 6 pound 8 oz at birth and 50cms long and at 4 months old he weighed 7.2 kgs and 67cms long.
I have always been told he is at the high end of the scale for his age but because he has always been a very long baby he doesn't look chubby either.
He is now almost 8 months old( on the 15th of this month) and weighs 9.5 kgs and is 76.5cms long. And he is a very healthy baby he loves his food but doesn't look chubby at all he looks in proportion.
Your doing a great job so don't stress.

He was weighed 2 weeks ago (age 11.5months) and weighed 12kg. So even thou he weighs alot he doesn't look big.....

My doctor told me his really worried about my sons weight and told me he was going to report me to childrens services.....as a joke!!
My son has been off the scale since he was a couple of weeks old, his just over 5 months old and weighs over 10kg...so its very amusing for my friends to all tell me how malnourished he is...hehe.
As long as your bubby is happy thats all that matters and a 2.5kg gain in 4 months doesnt strike me as being too excessive wink
My bubs also weighed 7 1/2 kilos at 4 months and was 55 cm long and I was told that everything was fine.
When she was born she was 3 1/2 kilos and 47.5cm long.
In weight she is above average and in length she is below average.
I have been told that her weight was nothing to worry about and that a lot of people who are tall have long babies and a lot of short people have short babies.
Sounds like you and bubs are doing well!

I close friend of mine has two girls who were both always off the chart in the screening books. Her 9mth is 11kg and her 2 and 8 mth old is 18kg. neither are fat or chubby, just big girls. try not to worry, especially if your daughter has the right diet, and at 4 mths i am sure she has.
