I was just wondering if chunkier babies reach their physical milestones (rolling over, crawling, walking, etc) later than slimmer babies. My son is in the 95th percentile for weight and I'm thinking he might be a little late doing some things because of his size. A friend has a baby 3 days younger than mine and her son is much more mobile than mine, but he's also 5 lbs lighter. I know all babies develop at their own pace, and I don't believe my son will be behind, he'll just do things a little later.
