  • No. She sounds really tall so maybe she's going through a growth spurt. As long as she's putting out as much as she's taking in (lol) then she should be okay. Mine is 7 months and eats a lot too, she's 27 in tall and 19 lbs.

  • No, sounds healthy. Probably just a growth spurt.

  • Sounds like a growth spurt. I didn't catch on to that till later with my son. Now that he is 8 and eats everything in sight I am so happy but honestly I have no idea where he puts it all.

  • WOW! She's REALLY tall! LOL My one year old is only 28". I'm sure that's it. What the PP said. My DD did that too at about that age. I was worried she was eating too much. But like I said...she's 28" and 20lbs. So, no giant baby here! LOL :)

  • my baby is really tall/long too..hes 4 months but i can tell hes going to be a big eater, he eats 8 oz now and 4-5 sure hes gonna be tall like your baby at that stage and i wouldnt worry as long as his growth is going up on both height and weight, your doctor will let you know if it is not they always check that.
