babys growth?

I am a first time mom and i have a baby boy who will be two months on monday, he was a decent size baby weighing at 8 lbs 6 ounces and he now is close to 13 pounds i would say but he is not fat he has chubby cheeks but other then that not fat at all but he is REALLY tall he is over 24 inches long from his last appointment but i have to dress him in 3-6 month clothing because he is sooo long and wont fit in his age range cloths. Has this happened to anyone else?

  • Rarely are babies in the size clothes they are "supposed" to be in. Sometimes they move up early, sometimes they're late - those clothes are designed for "average" babies so if your baby is on the smaller or larger size then they end up being in a different size than the age range they are really in at the moment. Mine usually didn't go into the next size until they were well within age range, because they're on the smaller side.

  • My baby is really long, slender, and solid (heavier than she looks). What helps is if you use onesie use a onesie exteder ta the bottom to give more length, so he isn't swimming in a larger size. Also TWO piece outfits fit long babies much better than one pieces. My baby outgrows sleep and play footies very vast, but can stay in two piece outfits a long time (she's 6 months approximately)
