How big is/was your 6 month old?

Mine is 22lb. and 30 inches long? His doctor said he was the size of a normal 1year old. He said not to worry and that he was "perfect", but just larger than normal babies. Just wondering.

  • My son was 21lb and 29 inches at 6 months. He has always been a BIG baby. My dr said he was the size of a 1 year old also. My son is now 8 months and he has slowed down a lot(only gained 1.5lb and 1 inch in the last 2 months), I am there with ya. Don't worry about it, at least he isn't too small!!!!

  • My daughter weighed in at close to 18 pounds and 26 1/2" on her 6 month check up. She is in the 80th percentile for both weight and height. Look at it this way, The much cuter babies are the chunky ones like we have!
