My son has always been a chubby baby. He was born 22in & 7lb 15oz. But lately I've gotten so many comments on how big my son is. Is it normal that he is weight? Yet he doesn't eat much lately there's days he doesn't eat at all & he sleeps a lot. Why is he chubby?

That is very large! What does your paediatrician say?

Are you or his dad large people? One of my nieces has always been very big for her age. She looked 7 when she was 4. But her dad is six and a half feet tall.

It is remarkable to be 4.5 times your birth weight at just over a year. If there isn't an obvious explanation (like a parent with a significantly larger than average stature) I would at least talk to your doctor about it.
