10 month old growth slowed/stopped?

Postby Muffin797 » Thu Jan 16, 2020 12:09 pm

I got my boy when he was 4 months old. He grew and grew. About a month and a half ago, he measured in at around 15.5 inches. He is still 15.5 inches. He used to shed constantly due to constant growth, but hasn't shed in over a month. He is very active, eats well, healthy poops regularly, and generally seems very healthy. He even started head bobbing about a week ago.

Should I be concerned that he doesn't seem to be growing as quickly anymore or is this normal? Is he likely to continue to grow?

From what I know they go through growth spurts just like we do. Kai grew like crazy from the time I got him till about 6 months when he reached 18’ and 340 grams. He still growing, now 19’ and 400 grams, although he has slowed down considerably both in eating and growth. As long as yours isn’t losing weight or have any symptoms of illness I wouldn’t worry about growth slowing down, especially if he did a lot of growing recently.
