  • He was in a 24 month. He was 25 pounds and about 30 inches tall. He'll be 2 in a week and is still the same size, just 3 inches taller.

  • 22.2 lbs and 30.3 in at a year and wearing 18-24 month clothes. She's really long because her Daddys tall though. I have a niece the same age as her and is half the size. She's always been behind on the clothes scale which i think depends on the brand anyways. If your worried, don't be. Everybody grows at differnt paces. Your son will hit a growing spurt and then you'll wish he'd slow down. My daughters almost 2 and is in a 3t so she's starting to slow down. I think she'll be in that for the rest of the summer.

  • My #1 daughter was 29" and 18lbs and wore 12 month pants but could fit into 6-9 month shirts.
    My son was 31" and 25lbs and was in 18-24 month clothes (he was over 9lbs at birth)
    My #2 daughter was about 28" and 19lbs and was wearing 9 month clothes.
    My #3 daughter was 30 1/2" and 20lbs and wearing 12-18 month clothes.

    As you can see my girls are all on the small side and my son was huge, lol. He never fit into newborn clothes and was wearing 3-6 month pants from birth and by 5-6 months was in 12 month clothes. He's 7 now and has thinned out but is now in a size 10 pant and boy's medium shirt.

  • I'm not worried, lol, my son will probably always be on the shorter side because he has Down Syndrome. I was just curious at how his size compared to other children at the moment =)

  • That's nothin' Mine is 14 months old and weighs 17 pounds! She Has been in 6-9 months forever now. In fact I am tired of looking at her same clothes day after day. BTW She eats all the time she is just tiny. So no advice on how to make her bigger please.

  • I know the feeling But_Mommie, my son was in newborn and 0-3 months clothing until he was 11 months old! And..... I just realized I put in the wrong size for what he's wearing now, lol, he's in 3-6 months, lol, can you tell I've only seen him once in the last week? (I'm in the NICU with my second)
