    You will find that there are a good number of babies who gain weight rapidly in the first five-six months. The weight then simply lingers til they are about 1 year old. It's happened to us and a lot of the bubs in my mothersgroup.
    My bub was about 9-10 kgs when he was about 5 months. He's now 12 kgs at 18months.

    Well, according to the growth chart your baby is only around the 75th percentile. Looks like you have a healthy baby there ! I think you just have to go with the flow for a baby. I mean what are you going to do, put them on a diet?

    Seriously, if breastfed, you can't overfeed a breastfed baby. If bottle fed, if baby is hungry, baby is hungry !
