Re: Parents of giant babies, please commiserate with me..

DS is like this. 7lbs 10oz at birth and gained 2-2.5oz a day at the beginning. This was with jaundice, no less! I was taken off guard because I was always told that breastfed babies were smaller. Yeah, not mine! He's now 22lbs at 9mths old.
DD was 7lbs even and stayed in the 50% her entire first year. She was only breastfed for a few weeks! She wore newborn clothes for 8wks! Now, at 3y (4/22), she is huge at 41lbs and 41". I just don't know what to expect from these two anymore!

Re: Parents of giant babies, please commiserate with me..

DS was a giant baby too. He came home from the hospital at 6lbs9oz (3 weeks early plus he kept losing for 2 weeks), and was 15lbs by 3 months (wearing 6-12 month clothes) and 20lbs by 6 months (wearing 18-24 month clothes.)

He hit 36" and 23lbs by 12 months and at 26 months is now 40" and 32lbs. He needs a 4T for the length, but 2T in the waist so getting clothes that fit is pretty tough. Strangers think that he is much older than he actually is.

Re: Parents of giant babies, please commiserate with me..

ODD was 8#10oz and 20.5" at birth and has always been long and lean and grows in quick spurts. YDD was 7#10oz and 20" at birth. She chunked quickly and was fairly chunky her first 1.5 years but at 2.5 years she's fairly lean but short for her age...she took me by surprise...she still wears 18-24m clothing! DS is my real shocker tho...He was born at 11lbs3oz and 22" long! He's long and lean as expected but looks like a 3-6mo! He's still fitting in his NB Mutts & Nanipoos but quickly running out oof room in them. He's wearing mostly 3-6m clothing now for the length...was only in NB clothes for a week or so. At 6wks, he was already 13lbs and 24" long! It's been almost 2 weeks since that growth check and I know he's grown a good bit since then...Despite his numbers, OS diapers still gap some around the legs! While he's giant for his age in numbers and length...he looks small for his weight.
