My son is in all ways a big boy. He has always since birth been at the top of his age percentile for his weight and height. He eats right, and is very active, but we are always asked if him and his 14 month older sister are twins, he is as tall as but out weights her (she weights 26 lbs.) He weights, 49 lbs. now and is 33' tall, so I quess I was just wondering if there are any other children his age this big?

All my Children have been big height wise but not weight wise. But then again both myself & their Dad are around 6ft tall. The hardest thing is deffinatly that people expect them to act older than they are, we constantly have that problem. The worst time was when my Daughter was younger as she has Developmental Delay as well but looks perfectly 'normal', now she is older you can tell she has special needs so MOST people are more understanding. Had my Daughters dr say she thort my 20mth old was at least 2 & half yrs the other day, someone else at the local supermarket thort he was 3, then he gets funny looks coz he in the trolly bucket seat thing with his dummy nearly asleep!

My oldest son Brenden was 10 lbs 11 oz 9 and 23.5 inches long when he was born. (No I didn't have a C-section or gestational diabetes) He has never appeared "on” the growth chart. He is a still a big boy he is the biggest child in the 4's class at "school" (day care) and he is one of the youngest, in his class. He will be 4 in February and is wearing size 4 or 5 in boys. When he was younger I got a lot of shouldn't he be potty trained by now? He was talking so much by the time he was 18 month old people thought he was 3. My pediatrician told me he is just a big kid always has been always will be. They are predicting that he will be at least 6' 4". My husband is 6' 2". My youngest Ayden on the other hand he was only 8 lbs 2 oz and he is still a little guy. He is only in the 4th percentile for height and the 25th for weight. Ayden will be 20 months on the 10th of Oct and is still in 18 month clothes. Brenden was wearing 18 months when he was 6-9 months. I guess what I am saying is that some kids are big and some are small. I am not feeding them differently, they are just genetically different.

I don't think my boys are big they are pretty average but they both have older looking faces I always get asked if they are twins one is 6 months the other 20 and the other day I was told isn't he a little old to be toilet training and I said umm no I don't think so . but he is 4 isn't he ... what the hell I think some people just have different views on what size children should be.. some people tell me my son is tiny the next will say oh wow isn't he big for his age.. the doctors used to comment that he was too light at 12 month old and only 9 kilos then at 14 months he was 12 kilos and I got told oh he is very heavy !! he had a growth spurt yes but he doesn't have an much fat on him never has .........

I have 2 tall daughters my oldest is 6 and my youngest is 21 onths it's a pain becaus my oldest get's really funny looks when she has a typical 6 yr old tantrum and my youngest is expected to be able to hold a conversation I feel like I am always explaining that there dad is 6ft 4 because I'm fairly short.

My boy is alot bigger that any baby his age that I know. When his father was younger he was the biggest kid in his class. Whenever I took him to the doctors he was always off of the charts he is now 20 months and he is in 2t and 3t hes 30lbs and 30 inches.

Mine is 20 months old and I have been asked several times, When does he turn 3? Yes, my son is big, not fat, just broad and tall. Funny cause me and daddy are not big or tall people. When he first had his wellness test he was in the top 89% of height and weight. He is a few pounds shy of yours but still big. Daddy thinks its good cause he won't be bullied around in school but Im afraid he will use his weight in confrontation with other kids. Different persepectives.

my son was born 10.4 pounds and weighted in at 8 kilos at 8 weeks! he's always been bigger then his cousins and playmates not quite as big as your boy he is currently approx 35 pounds and 35 inches. he is very active and loves his food as well and is great at eating his vegies!

unless your boy is overweight I don't think there is any need to worry. Some children will always be bigger.

yes mine has been the same as yours.. the doctor said he is off the charts or made it into a joke..Everyone thinks he is two or has thought that since he started walking..They expected him to talk .. He does now but at first they thought he was big.. I get that a lot and they call him big boy in daycare..He is the tallest in his class and now he is loosing weight but his height is still up there.. i am short and his father is average height but his grandfather on his father side is tall.. i guess i dont really think of it or worry about it.. Its just he has skipped sizes in clothes and shoes so i could only imagine when he gets older..
