Are you enjoying motherhood? It is a delight to watch the growth of infants, especially when they reach the 4th month. Babies in the 4th-month surprise us by expressing through their laughs, cry, giggles, gurgles, and many more.
Weight in 4th month
According to healthcare child experts, the weight of the baby doubles the birth weight during this month. In the 4th month, babies weigh around 13 pounds.
