4 month old 17.2 lbs and 27 inches!

My 4 month old son had his well child check last week.. He was 17lbs and 27 inches! He's in the 90th percentile for weight and 100 for his height. They said 27 inches for his age wasn't even on the charts! He's going to be such a big guy!!

  • Yea i don't remember the height at that age but my first son was 24 lbs at 3 1/2 months and super tall! People always looked at him with his bottle in disgust cause they thought he was too old! lol He is now 13 and 6 ft 4! Yea you got a big one comin but be proud momma! He reaches all the tall shelves for me! lol

  • Sounds like my kids. :) My son is 7 1/2 and is 4'3" or so and I don't know how much he weighs, we don't have a scale in our house. He's he size of most 10 year olds though. At his 2 year well child, when boys are supposedly half their adult height he was 3'2". My daughter is 4 and the size of most 5 year olds. SHE was 3'1/2" at 2 1/2, her supposed half her adult height.

    I'm not exactly short, I'm 5'6", but I'll most likely be the shorty in my house.

  • My son was about the same size at 4 months he was 26.5 inches and 17lbs 1 oz.... my son is almost 3 now and he's so tall... he's the size of many 4 year olds. DH is tall so we expect my son will be just as tall... DH is 6'4".... I have a feeling my son will be taller though, he's taller than DH's measurements in his baby book for the same ages.

  • lol my son is 4 months old too and at his well child visit he was in the 95th percentile on weight and height. they grow so fast lol but yea, my 3 year old was like that too when he was a baby, and is still growing strong. Everyone thinks he's at least 5 and I'm like no....he just turned 3 in march lol so yea he probably will be big
