"Babies who gain weight most quickly are at highest risk of obesity later in childhood, a Harvard study finds."
But before you change your LO's diet and start to panic, please check out the Fast Baby Weightarticle and speak to your pediatrician about your LO's weight/height percentile lines and any concerns. It is still unknown what, if anything, should be done about these findings, but never too early to learn more about our children.
How funny....... My son is ALMOST the same. He was heavier at birth he was 8 lbs 4 oz. . . . but at his last doctor appointment he was 26 lbs and 2.75 feet tall. He has shot up a lot in the height percentile curve recently and his weight has gone down a bit in the percentile curve (not drastically..... he went from like 75th to 72nd... so he is lengthening out). It's pretty funny people think that he is two.
1. 7 lbs 13 oz 2. 18.5 months 3. 27 lbs 35 inches. A tall bean pole, you can see every bone in his upper body. Dont think hes on track to be obese. hes either been in th 99 percentile or off the charts since his first doc appt.
Yeah, My son has the same problem..... depends on the brand, but there are some shorts that my son wears that are 9-12 months. 18 month pants fit loose but at last they aren't floodwater pants like the 12 month ones...lol His shirts drive me crazy, who in the world decided that shirts should be so short? If I put him into some 18 month ones he is totally showing his belly to the world. And he is OBSESSED with his belly button. So it has been 24 month-2T shirts for the last month or so.. . And the price of childrens clothes is OUTRAGEOUS! We go to children's orchard and don't buy anything new from a major store that isn't clearance (I won't pay more than $5 for a shirt...... baby gap charging $40 is just ridiculous).
I know what you guys mean my son is 18 months and i just had to move him into 3t tops, the only prob is that he's so thin they look so baggy on him, but the 2ts are to short. Hes in 18 month pants, but they are way to huge in the waist, even the adjustable pants cinched as tight as they can go are still way to big!
