Also, Babycenter has a thread with numerous other parents expressing concern about the same thing. It seems to be a sign that she'll have a growth spurt soon.

Agreed! And, to add my two cents, both my brother and I were heavier-set kids growing up. Small Sibling, especially, was "softer" for most of his childhood. When he turned 15, he grew a foot in a summer and gained a bunch of muscle tone. shrug OP, just be sure you teach your daughter good eating and exercise habits and the rest will work itself out.

I mean, it's possible it's just baby weight, too, right? My brother didn't lose his belly until he was a teenager, and my body mass altered when I was a teenager. I was "soft" throughout my childhood, and I was reasonably active.

Parents.com also has information on saving money during the first couple of years. Babycenter.com has a list of top baby costs and how to cut them. (They, too have a section dedicated to family finances.) If you want a less American perspective, Babycentre.co.uk has tips and a section on family finances.
