Is it normal for my two year old and seven month old to have the same diaper size?

They are both in 5's.
My oldest is 34inchs and 30lbs
and my youngest is 22lbs and 28 inches. I have a feeling they will be in the same size clothing soon enough! lol.

  • Yeah, it's pretty normal. Once a baby starts walking, their body shape completely changes. The butt is relatively smaller and the legs longer. Some of my kids wore their baby pants and shorts (size 0) until they were like 4 or 5 years old!

  • Yeah, kids are all different. My 3 1/2 year old still wears size 4 diapers to bed. She only weighs a few pounds more than her 14 month old brother. I'm waiting for the day he outgrows her, I think it's kind of cute.

  • Oh, more specifically, she weighs 27 lbs at 3 1/2 and is maybe 36 or 37 inches tall. He weighs 21 lbs and is probably about 32 inches tall at 14 months. I guess it's more than a few lbs, but it's still pretty close, I'm sure he will at least weigh more than her some time in the next few years.

  • The 7 month old is gaining weight, while the 2 year old is slimming out. I'd say yes. About that time to potty train too! Yay!

  • Yes. My son was a very big baby. At 6 months he was the very same size my daughter was at a year.

  • My 13 month old just got into size 4, and my almost 3 year old wears that same size (so we changed her to pull ups. lol). Clothing sizes are still different (YDD wears a 12-18 month, ODD a 3T-4).

  • LOL, my 2 year old and my 9 month old are in the same size diaper also. Size 4. Oldest is 26lbs and youngest is 20lbs. Oldest wears 2T, sometimes 3T and youngest wears 12 months, sometimes 18 months. Last week she wore her sister's 24months onesie and it fit well.

  • My youngest 2 were the same way - DD was a skinny 2.5 yo & DS was a chubby baby! They wore the same size for over a year (from 3 to 4 to 5 lol) til I potty trained DD!
