I have a small baby; she will be 1 year old in a week and she weighs 17.9lbs and is 27.5 in tall. I was wondering where everybodys' children are on the height and weight scale.

My one year old is about 23 lbs and 30 inches, but her two year old sister is only 20 lbs and 31 inches . . . Every child is different, even when they have the same biological parents. If your doctors aren't concerned, then you shouldn't be either. Enjoy the fact that she isn't breaking your back or too heavy to carry!

My son was 19.5lbs and 31 inches when he was 12 months old. The pediatrics said he is the 8th percent for his weight and 87th percent for his height.

According to our doctor, my son is 50th percentile all the way across. Perfectly average, lol! He's 23 lbs and almost 31 inches. He eats all day long so I'm surprised he's not heavier. All his weight is in his enormous belly; his legs , cheeks and arms aren't very chunky, haha. He's a cutie!

I know exactly what you mean! Khloe just turned a year on the 19th and she is weighing in at 24.2 pounds and shes 29 inches tall.. she is doing alot and starting to talk but people have a tendency to label kids, and I don't want her to be labeled because she is not as advanced as she looks like she should be! But she is healthy and beautiful and I know she is growing just like God wants her too!

My son turned yr on the 5th. He was 7.9 lbs and 20.5 inches long at birth now he is 27 lbs (95%) and 32 1/2 in (over 100%, off the chart). The dr said he is huge, chunky monkey but def not fat. He is wearing 24 month clothing. He was BF til 9 1/2 months old when he weaned himself cause he was too active to sit down and nurse on mommy!!

My one year old son is 17.9lbs as well and 30". Slim and long. My nutritionist told me not to worry about it. I was small when I was a baby and his father is pretty tall. Sometimes its all about the genes. All babies are not butterballs. Lol.

My little girl just turned one June 11th, she weighed 20 and is 27.5 tall at her one yr doc appt. so in my opinion ur baby is just a little lighter but nothing where i would be concerned about. As long as ur baby is eating well and the doc has no worries then I wouldnt be a concerned.

My son Jack just turned one today, and he is 24 lbs and 32 inches tall. The dr said he is just a big boy, but very well proportioned. He is the size of a 21 month old the doc said!

My son just turned 1 year and he is small as well. He weights just over 18 lbs and 28 in long. Dr wasn't concerned b/c he looks healthy and eats right. He is very active so that figures into his lightweight. Hoping that he will lengthen as he grows.

My son is 1 year 2 wks old, and at his 1 yr appointment, he weighed in at 18.0 lbs and 30" tall. He has been/is breastfed, and now eats table food for all meals. However, he has a severe milk and egg allergy, so no dairy at all! The Dr. and our dietician wanted him to start on 16-24 oz. daily of soy formula, in addition to the nursings and meals he is already eating, but he won't touch the stuff. We found a company called Neocate that makes dairy free, nonallergenic formulas and juices that are nutritionally complete, and we are going to start him on this so he can get extra calories to gain weight (the Dr. said he would need to be 24 lbs. to be back on the 50th %, right now he is below the 5th %.) We called the company and requested samples, and got them in today. Haven't tried them yet, as he is at the sitter's today, but hopefully he will like the juice so he can plump up! I was worried at first about my son's weight, but those growth charts they use don't and can't apply to every child. I know they can't be solely comprised of children with milk and egg allergies! So I try not to worry too much, because developmentally, he is right on track.

My lil girl is 18.8 lbs. and my three year old is only 10 pounds more. so both of my girls are little but they are both very active. i wouldn't worry about it.

[deleted account]

my daughter had her first birthday yesterday and she is 21 lbs and 30 inches. shes a little above average on growth charts (the doc said around 65% for both i think). she was small when she was born though (6 lbs 2 oz, 18.5 inches, 10-12% growth charts). so she's been growing but she eats a lot and is very active.

I as well am very happy to see all these posts. My little girl is just over a year old and she is just over 18lbs and is 27.5 inches tall. She looks like a chubby 9 month old. Her doctor wants to monitor her growth for a little while but it makes me feel so much better to see there are other small babies.

My little guy was born 7 lbs 15 oz and 20 inches. He turned one on 22nd of June and his one year appointment is on Friday. He is currently around 17 lbs, his doc has been worried and referred us to a GI and he has gone through a whole bunch of exams and other than allergy to dairy he is okay...GI doctor is not as worried. He is a super active boy and eats well overall, but has always been fussy with his milk and who feeds him...LOL. He rather Mom do all his feedings.

Another thing to keep in mind is that each child grows differently and not one child is alike so it doesn't matter how big or how small your child is because between 18 months and 3years is when they slow down on their eating too so if you are that worried consult you pediatrician.

I think you should also consider your baby's birth weight. Babies should triple their birth weight during the first year. If your doctor didn't say anything that concerns your baby's weight and height I think you shouldn't worry. Oh, my baby is 22 lbs and 30 inch long and she weighed 7 lbs 21 oz.

Here go like this,all you moms are worried bout the size of your child, my oldest is a 17 year old boy named Brandon, he was my smallest child weighing 4lbs 6 1/2 oz.But now is 17yrs and is 5 ft and 10 inches tall and still growing. Myself I am 5ft 8in, his father is shorter than me. So I wouldn't be too worried.

I have a daughter that turned 1yrs old June 2/2010 and she weighs 19lbs and 13oz ad is 31 inches tall. I am not worried at all, I have talked to 2 different pediatricians and they say each child is different and not to be worried. So I wouldn't worry about it too much.

hey my girl will be 1 on the 30th June birth weight was 8lbs 14 oz..and she now weighs 7.8kg witch i think is about 17.2lbs..3months ago she was 6.9kg..when i was pregent i was eating alot of good food, i think thats why she was doing so well and was born quite big, my partner has small jeans in his family, his neice is 4years old and weights 15kgs and i know alot of 11month old babys what weigh 10kgs, i think as long as your baby is reaching all the milestones and is happy you should have nothing to worry about..enjoy

My girls turned one on the 16th. As of the 17th they were 22.0 pounds, 28.5 inches, and 21.9 pounds and 29.5 inches. Hard to believe that they were born 4.13 and 4.2.
