  • My daughter was born at 9 lbs 4 oz and weighed above average for her weight till she started walking. Most babies that are chunks like my first child will thin out when they start walking. If your pediatrician says she's healthy, I wouldn't worry about it. :)

  • As long as his weight and height are both increasing steadily, it's totally normal! His growth will slow down when he gets closer to 1 year old. The only thing that might be a problem (b/c he is big) is that it might take a little longer for him to do things like roll over and sit up... because he's got more weight to work with.
