My little boy is not so little! He was born on the 23rd of June and is 24 or more inches long (been a month since measured length) and weighs 17lbs 6 oz and is growing rapidly. Everyone is always shocked when I tell them that he is only 4 months old! I think he is probably in the high 90th percentile right now for height and weight. Just curious if anyone elses baby is his size?





Parker was only 7lbs 9oz at birth, so not huge. And he is also a breastfed baby!

all kids are different...If your doctor is of the opinion that he's healthy then don't worry. Thats just how he is. My son was 10 lbs 14oz and 23 and 1/2 inches long at birth. He's 22.6 lbs and 28 inches at 4 months now. He's like 100th percentile. I worried for the longest time about him. Doctor says he is healthy. He's just not like every other kid. Don't worry!

I get a lot of the same comments. My son was born just a day after yours at 8 lbs 13 oz and 21 inches. Just today he was at the dr. He weights 17 lbs 8oz and is 26 3/4 inches long. I think it's priceless to see the look I get when I tell ppl my son is only 4 months old when they guess he's 6 to 9 months. When I tell them my hubby is 6'5" they always understand why he's a big little guy. :o)

My baby was born on the 3rd and she is now 18LBS and 25 inches long. So i wouldn't worry about it. My doctor was telling me that she was making her own curve but usually around 9 mos when they get more moble they will platue a little. I was wondering"well if thats the norm than why is the graph like that?" but oh well.

My daughter Samantha was born on 6-6 and last week she weighed in at 16.5 pounds and 25 inches long. I asked the doctor if she is gaining too much weight and he said not at all. She does weigh more than the average 4 month old but she is perfectly healthy. I get the same response from people that you do when I tell them that she is only 4 months old, well tomorrow will be 5 months, they can not believe it and tell me that she is so big. What people may not know is how big your baby was at birth. Sammie weighed 8lbs 3 ozs so she was not small at birth. As long as your baby is healthy and happy that is all that matters right now. Also once they really start moving more the weight gain will slow down too, at least that is what I have been told. I guess we shall see over the next couple of months! Best of Luck!
