My Elijah Jace was 28 inches and 21 pounds at his six month check up. He wears a 2T outfit quite nicely. Every time I am going to buy him a new set of clothes I hold up the 2T and think, "Nah! It''ll be too big for him." Then, I buy it because it seems to be his size. Lo and behold, when I put it on him, it fits him perfectly.

My daughter will be 7 months in 2 days and she's 29.52 inches (75cms),weighs 7.85 kgs (17.3lbs) She's still in crawler nappies and wearing size 0. Only size 1 shoe still. (She has little feet) Because she's so tall but still within average weight range, Her clothes are usually wide on her but just the right length. If she wears the smaller size that fits in width, it will be too short and when she lifts up her arms, pretty much half of her belly shows.

my little man is also almost 28 inches and just over 18 lbs he wears size 12 in most everything,, still has a couple 9 month sleepers but that's about it. his shirts are usually too big in torso, but just right in arm length and pant length at 12 month size too.

My son turned 6 mos on the 16th, had his appt April 1, he was 27 inches and 19 pounds. Apparently, both are only in the 70th percentile. His head, on the other hand....90th percentile! lol

Silas was 17.8 lbs at his 6 month! (He' sprobably about 18 lbs now at 6 months 1 week & 5 days) He was 28 1/2 in long about a week after his 6 month checkup. He wears size 2-3 diapers ( kind of in transition right now). He wears 6-9 month shirts & onesies ( he can still fit into some 3-6 month though). He wears 12 month pants in length ( i have to find small waisted pant or put a belt on him since he's small waisted). He wears a size 3 shoe. He's in 12 month PJ's. He's long & thin just like his Daddy :)

Mine is very long also. He turned 6 months on the 13th. He is 29.5 inches long and is 18 lbs (almost exactly). They are concerned with his weight though. He's been dropping in the percentile since he was born. He never stops moving though so I can't imagine it's that bad.

My daughter is 15 pounds, 10 ounces and 26 1/2 inches long. I was putting her in 9 month clothing, but she is too long for pants so I have tried 12 month and they work perfectly! We are switching to 12 month for good!!

sounds like a lot of heallthy strong september babies out there. My son was exactly 20 pounds at his 6 month checkup and 29 inches long. Clothes size really varies depending on brand...its pretty crazy! he has been in the 95% for everything since the day he was born so atleast he is consistent! :) He also just outgrew size 3 shoes and needs a 4! insane!

my son turned 6 months on the 22nd and weighed 16 lbs 8 ounces (which his big brother weighed at 4 months) but he is 29 inches. Suprisingly he was 10 lbs 9 oz at birth which we still dont understand how he was that big so he still has not doubled his birth weight but he loves to eat! My older son too is very thin but tall and loves to eat! My 6 mos old wears mostly 6-9 month clothes but for one piece outfits, overall and pajamas he wears 12 months, size 2 diapers and size 2 shoes fit him but he doesnt really ever wear them. He has already grown out of his infant car seat so we are going to get a convertable one for him.

My baby was born Sept 20th at 7#'s 4 oz. My baby is small now she is only 13#'s and 25cm. She is only on breastmilk and doesn't want to eat anything else. When she eats she throws up alot so she is taking something for Acid Reflux right now hopefully she will gain some weight.

My daughter was born September 24th and as of last week she messured 29 and 1/4 inches but she is only 15.6 lb. At two months the doctor told me that she was just going to be tall and lean, just like her Daddy! Because she sure as heck didn't get her height from me (i'm only 5 foot). She still wears size 2 diapers and she is a mix between all sizes. Her 3-6 month onsies are getting tight but still fit BUT her 3-6 month footed PJ's DO NOT fit.. and her 6-9 month ones are still too big.

My son was 6 months old on the 8th and is 19lbs 5ozs and 26.5 inches long. He is in anywhere from 6-12 month clothing. He is in size 4 pampers (22-37lbs). He has HUGE thighs and a long torso so some clothing under 12 months no longer fit him. And smaller diapers dont work very well cuz of his thighs. He my lil chunky monkey!!

hey congrats.....my son is 6 months old and is 69cms tall and weighs 7.95kgs. Wanted an advice that have you been able to set up a schedule for your little one and does she sleep through the night. My son used to sleep through the night but not nowadays and am trying to set up his routine during the day. If you could advice it will be great. thanks!
