Q.

12-month old weight

Hi doc

My baby weighed 13kgs at her 12-month checkup. She weighed 10.5 kgs at her 9 months vaccination visit. Her birth weight was 4.05kgs. She is a very happy and VERY active child. Is her weight on track? What is the average weight for a baby girl at 12-months  15-months  18-months and 24-months?

Your baby's weight is far in excess of the average weight for a baby girl of 12 months which is 9kg, but she was a big baby at birth as well. It would help if you gave me information about her length as this is important to see if her weight and height are in balance.The average weights for little girls at 15 months: 9.7kg,18 months: 10.2kg and 2years: 11.5kg.
