My daughter weighs 11.4 pounds and is about 22 inches long. She doesn't even make it onto the baby chart for her age. She is a percentile all of her own !!!

wow that sure is a healthy boy! i thought my son was big. at 4 1/2 months he was 16 lbs 8 oz and 28 inches. thats because my daughter weighed the same as him at 14 months old. my dr. says he was just over 60% for weight but like 80 for height!

My son is almost six months and about 3 weeks ago he was 17 1/2 lbs and 26 1/2 inches long. They didnt tell me what percentile he was in though. Your baby seems big but he is probably just a very healthy kid!!

My daughter turned 5 months old on the 20th and she weighs 13 lbs. I'm not sure of how tall she is. At her 4 month checkup she was only 23 inches but I know she has grown since then because her clothes are getting too small. lol

My son will be 6 months old on the 9th. Last I checked, a week or two ago he was 20 pounds. I don't know how tall he is right now but I know for sure he's at least 25 inches long but we haven't checked that in a while.

Your son is just going to be a big guy!! My daughter is a bit smaller, but my son (who is now 6) was 19lbs 2oz (85th%) and 28" (95th%). If it doesn't slow down, you're going to be spending a lot of money on food :) By the age of 2 and even now they are estimating him to be about 6'5", but we all know that can change! Have fun with your beautiful boy. In 10 years you'll probably be looking up to him, haha.

My son was 18lbs 7ozs and 27 1/4 inches at his 4 month check up and I know he is bigger now as we are about to outgrow the infant carrier and it's rated to 18.5 inches. He was off the charts on height and 96th %ile on weight. He is a very happy and healthy little boy and I couldn't be any happier!

My son was 20lbs and just about 28 inches long. He will be 6 months old tomorrow so we'll see how much he has grown. Everyone thinks he's a chunk and older than he is. They are growing boys and once they start crawling and moving around more I'm sure they will lose some of their baby fat. I love it especially his cheeks :).

My son was born on August 31st. He was 17 lbs and 27.5 inches long at his last dr. visit. He's in the 97% for height and 75% for weight. But's its all relative. I think you just have to look at the parents to get a bit of an idea of how big/small the child will be be. My dr. doesn't really go by the whole percentile thing to determine well-being, but the baby's individual growth and development is what really matters.

about 5 months she was 15.5 lbs. and 25 inches long. Doc said 75th% since she was born. as long as he's healthy it shouldn't matter. all babies are different. your son was probably a bigger baby when he was born too huh? Think of this, my niece is 2 months younger than my daughter and weighed 1 pound less when she was born than my daughter at 2 months old. Now my niece is bigger than my daughter.

27lbs!? holy crap! My 18 month old neice only weighs 22!! Annnnnnnnnnywayz. my daughter at her last check up was 13 even and 26 inches. i weighed her a week ago and she weighed 14.8lbs. Probably up to 15 now and has probably grown another inch being that she pretty much has grown about a inch a month. so 15lbs, 27 inches.
