One year old baby weight: what's normal?

Message length 300 characters recommended

According to the WHO growth charts 50th percentile for 12 month old girls is about 20lbs. For boys it's about 21lbs. The "normal" range (between 25th and 75th percentiles) is about 19-23lbs for both. The truth is what's normal for your child is much more important then what percentile they're in. Percentiles just say how they compare to everyone else. You wouldn't want your child to start out in the 25th percentile and suddenly jump to the 50th because that wouldn't be normal for them.
