  • He is big for his age. He may not be unhealthy, but, he is BIG.

    At that age, my son was around 22lbs and 32in. maybe even a little less and he was in the 50th percentile, meaning average.

  • Some kids are bigger than others. I gave birth to amazons! Thankfully it was through c-sections!

  • my son is was the same way he looked like he was 2 when he was 6months. people always wondered why we carried him, and it was because he was too young to walk. lol my son is 6yrs old now he weighs 100lb and in 4'5". I know by the time he is 10yrs old I will have to stand on a chair just to scold him face to face. lol

  • I wouldn't worry about it my nephew and niece are the same way. She is older. He is twice her size. She wears a 12 and half he wears a 2. He has mad inches on her. they were the same size for a long time. Now he just bigger. Don't stress that.

  • My daughter is 2.5 and 28 lbs 36 in. tall and skinny. LOL. and my 15 month old is 28lbs 33 in. My nephew was very large, too. He is 2.5 and was over 40lbs. They had to take him off milk and he lost some weight, he's still big, but not really big like he was. I think your son sounds big, but not unhealthy.
