Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

He is 4 months now and he is 15 lbs and 24 inches long he is huge!! He eats every 4 hours, and is super healthy.He can hold his head, and now he is reaching for toys. He can sit up for like 10 seconds and then he falls. I just wanted to know if everything is okay and if he is the right size, and is learning what he should.

Caitlyn was 14 lbs and 22 inches long, she was not holding her head up really good but about a month later she held it up with no problem.She couldn't sit up untill 5 months, she was reaching for toys about 5 months too. But I think he sounds perfectly fine.
That all sounds great! At 4 months Vivienne was 14 pounds and 24.5 inches tall. I don't remember what my other two were like off the top of my head. I think Harrison was bigger, Audrey was about the same.Audrey and Vivienne were both holding their heads up from birth, Harrison was probably around 8 weeks old when he did that. I think all three of them were reaching for toys around 2-3 months. Vivienne is 6 months old and isn't sitting up straight, but she's holding herself up with one hand. She just started crawling a few days ago. My other two were about the same.
My daughter was 13lbs and 23 inches, she was always a small baby,she's long and skinny. She was holding her head up around 3 months,and could sit up around 5mths.She was reaching for toys about 3 months, and now she is crawling but she is 7 months.
