    I weighed Skye a while ago now, in November I think. She was 17lbs. I've just weighed her again and she's now 17lb 2oz..

    Shouldn't she be gaining faster than that?

    She's getting taller, sounds silly but before Christmas she couldn't reach the floor in her Jumperoo, now I need to adjust it because her legs are too long for it!

    She 73cms tall.

    When babies start hitting more milestones and are more active, they don't gain weight as fast as they used to. As long as she is still gaining weight, I wouldn't say it's a problem. If you are concerned, talk to your doctor.

    My son just dropped a TON of baby fat within the past month since he started rolling over and spending more time on his tummy. His face isn't as chubby, and there are times where he feels soooo light compared to what he used to feel like.

    I would maybe get it checked out...2oz in 2 months is not a whole lot. My nurse told me 4oz a week is good.
