At what age will a full term infant boy double his birth weight?

I'd just like to be sure that my baby is growing and developing normally.

The goal is by 6 months at the possible most for a healthy growth rate. Most infants double their weight much more quickly than the 6 month mark and may double their weight in 3 or even 2 months.

Your pediatrician will be able to best know your child's normal growth pattern. With that in mind, most parents of full term babies can expect their little one to double their birth weight around age six months.

The first thing I would do is to talk this over with the doctor. He can tell by the parents how big the baby will be. He should double his weight by age 2, if he eats the right diet. Don't load him up with carbs and fats.
