Landon is 10 1/2 months right now and everyone tells me he's too big for his age. My brother was a big baby so I figured it ran in my side of the family. Last time I checked his height and weight was the beginning of November and he was 28 inches tall and 25.5 lbs. I have a feeling he's gotten taller because he's too tall for his walker now, but he's not able to walk on his own yet. His cousin is a year older than him and Landon weighs the same as him and is almost as tall as him.

Every time someone sees me carrying him in his carseat they say he should be carrying me. I'm sure it DOES look weird since I'm thin. Ive also gotten 'Mann he mustve been hard to push out huh?'... but when he was born he was only 6 lbs. 10.2 oz, and 19 inches.

How big are other Jan babies?
Anyone elses baby this big... or do I have a super huge baby?

My daughter will be 11 months on the 31st when she was weighed about a month ago she weighed 19 pounds 3 oz and she was 28 1/4 inches tall. She is in the 90% for her height but only 50% for weight. She is walking now so I have been told that she wont gain anymore weight for a while.

my son Sawyer is 11mo and is 25lbs and 28 in. He just started walking last mo so he will probably thin out some. I think your baby sounds totally normal

My daughter will be one on 16th Jan she was weighed at 11 months at 7.62kg or 16.8 lbs i am not sure on her hight. We also have a paediatric nurce come and weigh her all the time. It was weekly then moved to two weekly and it is now monthly. The biggest problem with our babies is it is hard if your baby is big or small. People always comment. My girl is the size of an average 5 months old. I tell you i would rather have a big baby who eats well than a child you are constantly worried about because they dont eat or gain weight.

However i can not believe you still carry your baby in the baby car seat. We only use the baby seats for about 6 months on average. We used it a bit longer with our little girl as she was so small. But from about 6 months never carried her in it, it stayed in the car and we always took her out. It must kill your back to carry your big baby in it. We keed our kids rearward facing till they are one, walking and 10kg (22lps) or at least two of those three things. It is always best to keep them as safe as possiable. Our girl will be reward for a long time yet.

Quoting Natasha:

somara is 28in long & 17 1/2lbs- be thankful hes big- i have drs appts every month so they can check her weight, not fun!



My 11month old is also 17lbs and 29inches long.  The doctor told me that I shouldn't be too worried and added Pediasure to her diet. Hopefully this will make a difference when she returns to the dr. in February.  Good Luck

Caleb is 30 inches long and 27.6 pounds right now. He'll be 1 on Jan 30, so don't worry, your baby isn't HUGE. :) And he's doing well at his height and weight, he's been walking for a good while now. Don't worry!

do not worry, my son is 11 months on the 25th and he weighs 26.4 pounds and is 30 1/2 inches. his dad is 6'3, he may inherit his heighth there, i do not know

when people see my son they believe he is 1 1/2 - 2 years old. and he still does not have any teeth.

my son when he was born was 8 pounds 10 3/4 ounces. so he has always been a big boy. my son just started to pick himself up on things, he does not crawl yet he does this weird little drag thing. but he also is to big for his walker so i have to hand walk him everywhere.



so your baby is not alone

I have twin boys and they will be 11 months on the 20th. Jayden is 20lbs and 29 inches. And Jullian is 19lbs and 30 inches... if it was anything to worry about the Dr. would say something...

Keegan's birthday is Jan 29th, but he was 5 weeks early. He is already 28 inches tall and weighs 20 pounds. Don't let people freak you out, you're his mom and you know (and his doctor can tell you) that he is healthy and fine the way he is!
