My 6 month old baby boy weights 20.4 pounds and he is 28 inches in height. Is my baby growing okay? Thanks doctors!!!

Big Boy!: Your doctor must be weighing and measuring your baby every time you go to for a check up. He is ~95 th percentile for weight and height. Which means he is growing very well and he is proportional as far as weight and height are concerned. If the parents are big and tall as well then this is the best growth for him. You should continue to visit his doctor and discuss his diet and his growth charts. ...Read more

Constipation?: I'm assuming that you mean glycerin suppositories for constipation. Every once in a while these are ok to give. If you are giving one every few days you should try and figure out how to relieve the constipation. Likely you have started some solids by now. Consider giving a small amount of undiluted fruit juice 2-4 oz or a smushed up fresh fruit. Just stay away from bananas. ...Read more
