my baby girl was born on April 1st. she was 7lbs 9oz and 20 1/2inches. she's going to be 8 months soon and at her last check up (6month) she was around 17.6lbs and 27 1/4inches. i wont know how much she is till her appointement jan 4th for her next round of shots and check up. my girl is wearing 18month pants for the length and 12-18month shirts jsut so that they would fit. she giant compared to her older sister at the same age! my oldest was born june 2007 @ 5lbs 15oz and 19inches. when she was 6months she was still in newborn-3month clothes. she's jsut now fitting into size 2 clothes for the lenth but still needs 12month clothes for the waist... it's hard to potty train a 2 1/2yr old girl when the pull ups don't fit her properly, lol!!!

My Son was born 7lbs 8oz is 20.5 " he is now 23lbs and 26" He is crawling, climbing the stairs, and waving. I dont think your child is overweight it all depends on his genetic markers.

My niece who I have guardianship of (because her mom passed away) was born April 27th 2009 one week early but full term @ 5lbs 11oz.As of November 24th she weighs 17lbs 1 1/2 oz & is 25 1/4 inches long and the doctor says she is gaining steadily and her weight is just right which is surprising to me because she has had alot of problems with formula.She is a little behind she rolls over but doesnt sit up unsupported nor crawl.80% Percentile for Height and 75% for Weight and 50% for BMI.

My son was born April 20th weighing in at 7 pounds 1 & 3/4 ounces and 21 inches tall. He is 7 months and 1 week today. At his last office visit (his 6 month check up) he was 19 pounds and 5 ounces and 29 inches tall. I'm betting that he's grown at least another 1/4 inch and weighing in at least another 1/2 pound.



He hasn't begun crawling... in fact he's pretty lazy =[ I try and try and try to get him to realize that being on his hands and knees enables him, but he flops on his tummy and rolls over. I guess he'll get there in time. He does sit on his own and can stand on his own for a little while, 20 or 30 seconds or so. His first tooth is just barely showing through. He is a fun little handful =]

My baby girl was born April 1st 2009 and weighed 7Ib 9oz and was 20 inches long. At 6 months she weiged 16Ib 5oz and was 26 inches long. She started crawling right at 6 months and pulling up then. She now is almost 8month and stands without support for about 20 seconds. I think every baby is different. I think your baby is just fine and it might take him a little longer to crawl if he is chubby. It doesnt mean he is delayed at all!! Just harder for him to get around and that is just fine! I bet he is adorable!!

my daughter was born on the 17th april, she weighed 10lb, took her to see the health vistor the other week and she now weighs 20lb. She is now sitting up on her own but she hates sitting she wants to be on her feet all the time i reckon she is not going to crawl go straight to walking, but all babys are diffrent i don't care if she is behind i love her to bits.

my daughter was born on april 1st also, at 8lbs 10oz, she now ways 23lb so is also quite a big girl, she has just started crawling and is now pulling herself up on furniture. I wouldn't worry about his weight we are all different, babies are much cuter with a few rolls and something to squidge when you have a cuddle.

My son was born on April, he was 4.83kgs which I think is around 10 1/2 lbs, he is now 9.8 kgs so around 21lbs. He has been crawling for a month and a half and is now holding on and walking around furniture. I think its hard for a baby to be considered overweight as most babies are chubby.

My son was born on April 1st as well. He was 9lbs. 15.3 oz and 21 inches long, at 7 months he is 19 lbs. and 27 inches long. He can sit on his own, roll, and crawl, he is even pulling himself up on his feet. Personally I dont think your little one is over weight that would be a question for your pediatrician.

I hope all goes well with your little girl, Sarah! I know what it's like to have a baby with health problems...mine was hospitalized 2 1/2 months ago - almost died - but we didn't know the problem was so serious and it could have been too late. Life is so precious.

my son was born April 6 2009 weighing 8 lbs 12 oz. he is now 23 or 24 lbs. he wont roll over like your son is but he can sit very good. i think that the more active he gets he will slow down. i dont think he is overweight and dont worry about that lol

my son was born April 25th @ 7 lbs 8 oz 19 in (3 1/2 weeks early) and he's now 19 lbs 28 in. he's not crawling yet but he's rolling to where he wants to go and he's inching along if he really wants too. he's kinda lazy he's rather pull something to himself if he really wants it rather than try to reach for it. But he's really fast in his walker! zipping around all over the place =)

My daughter was born April 20th a month early at 7lbs 4 oz and 21 1/2 inches tall she is now 19lbs and 31 inches tall... She can sit up and crawl now and has been pulling herself up to stand on edge of couch.....as long as a doctor thinks your baby is healthy and you feel that way too I think he's good :)

I had a little boy on April 1st he was 6lbs 13 oz 21 inches long he is now 19 pounds and 28 inches long. I don't think your baby is overweight at all. My son is crawling now and starting to pull himself up on everything..all babies do things at different rates. I would not worry

My daughter was born April 7, 2009 weighing 7 lbs 13 ozs and 19 inches long...now she is 13 lbs 4 ozs and 25 1/4 inch long...She may be my 'itty-bitty' but according to her doctors, she is healthy and will grow at her own rate. She has been sitting on her own since she was 5 months old and since getting her first tooth, is now eating solids without a problem. I think she will start crawling soon, but there's no rush.

My son was born about same time and same height/weight as yours but mine is 21lbs (still big)...mine slow down growing once I start solid foods...not sure why. As far as the overweight thing goes, I would look more at what he is eating...is he eating fruits and veggies? Then, the weight is healthy weight and will come off when he starts crawling and walking. Is he eating junk? Then it is unhealthy weight...make sure you are starting your son off right so he doesn't get into bad habits too soon!

My son was born on April 20th Of 2009. He is 15 lbs. and 26 inches long. Compared to his little cousin who was born August 12th She is 16lbs, and 25 inches long. Our pedi said that he is in the 3rd percentile for his age. He was born at 19 inches long. And he weighed 6 lbs 10.3 oz.

My son was born April 28th and weighed 9 lb 2.5 oz and was 21.5 inches long too. His last appt at the dr.'s he was 20 lb and just under 29 inches. He too can sit on his own and the other day he got his bum up and legs up, pushed off on one leg to get a toy, so I don't think it will be too long before he's actually crawling.

Every baby is different and I wouldn't be too worried...if your doctor hasn't expressed any concerns then I wouldn't worry about it.

I had my little girl on the 8th April 2009, she was 8lb 3 oz when born and is now 17lb and 24 inches. she has been crawling from 6 and half months she sits on her own and even stands up and try's to climb furniture.

Every baby grows at there own pace mine does not do much growing she is in the 25th percentile of smaller baby's so i cant really say.
