OK, so baby Jo had her physical yesterday and at 13 months she is only 20lbs and 29 inches tall. She is very healthy, eats plenty, and the doctor didn't say she was underweight, but I was just wondering if this is considered small for her age? How big are you 13 month olds?( And as for her rash the doctor said to let it clear up on it's own, so thanks so much to ladies who responded to the other post.)

Ash I have the same issue with my daughter. They are always too big around the waist. I love the jeans from Gap, Old Navy, and The Children's Place because they have an adjustable waist (on the inside). It doesn't always fix it completely but it definitely helps.

Does anyone else have trouble finding jeans that fit around the waist? I buy 18months for the length but they're big around the waist. Do they make baby belts?

my son is 24 lbs and 32 in. at 13 months. i wouldnt worry too much as your babys doctor would let you know if they had any concerns with your babys growth. as long as they continue to grow and they are healthy and happy, thats all that should matter. :)

I wouldn't worry about it. All kids grow at their own rate. My 13.5 month old just barely hit the 20 lb. mark. If your baby is healthy and not losing weight then they will be fine!!!

my son is 13 months and weighs 18 lbs. My dr always said as long as they stay on the growth curve that they have been on and dont drop off, they are fine.

Nice to here of other babies on the smaller side. I'm surrounded by babies that are close to her age who seem to be so much bigger.

My Daughter is almost 22lbs, but she has always been in the high percentiles for her age group. At her 1 year appointment she was in the 75th percentile I believe, so I don't think your daughter is under weight at all.

My daughter is almost 14 months now but when she was 13 months she was only 17 pounds and 29 inches tall. Which terrified me, but the doctor told me there wasn't anything to worry about unless she started to actually lose weight ( she is just a little girl, like I was when I was)

My little guy is the same size. Three of my four have been 20ish lbs at 12-13 months. The biggest difference has been the height. As long as your lo is meeting milestones and eating, don't worry!

As long as she is consistently gaining weight, don't worry! She is healthy and eating good that;s all that matters:)

my bub Riley is the same, he is 13 months and weighs only 9.4kg, which is about 20 lbs. when we see other bubs his size i ask how old they are and the ususal reply is about 8 months. he is in proportion and healthy, just little. The pediatrician says that because he's very active and busy he burns his fuel quickly. Also if you or Jo's dad were small as kids it can be passed on, and they can have a growth spurt when they get older.

If the doctor is happy don't worry about it. My son is also the same weight and height.

my daughter is only 20lb & 1 oz and she is fine, don't worry once the doctor is fine with her weight that means she is a healthy baby
