So my son was born almost 3 weeks early and was tiny at birth

6lbs 12 oz and 19 inches long but super super skinny

Jude 4 days old in a newborn onesie that was to big..

 he kept jerking his arm lol he was in preemie jacket from nov  when he was born up until the first week of jan., and he was in newborn diapers

Now here we are 3 1/2 months after birth and hes 24 1/2 inches long and 17 1/2 lbs

lol I love his expression

Hes in size 6-9 month size clothing and size four diapers(hes got a big butt like his mom), I cant belive this and i cant keep up with his growth.

Two more pics for comparison

This one is from Jan.                                                     This one is from Feb.

I mean I knew there was a chance he would be big I mean I am 6'3 the father (spermdonor) is 5'8. But this major of a growth is rediculous, he has a dr appointment next month I cant wait to see what the dr says.

 

I mean if he keeps growing at this rate he will be in toddler size before one and he will be in pullups.

 

I'm a single Mom to one lil'boy named Jude, who I had via c-section. Hes bottle fed and circumcised, and we co sleep. I have epilepsy, Multiple sclerosis, I'm a recovering anorexic, and I am Bipolar. Doing the best I can by myself.

He looks really healthy and thats a good thing...
My daughter is 9.5 months and weighs 14lbs still in size 2 and 3-6 months....but we are about ready to bump her up a size and just deal w/ everything being a little big....
Everyone is different...
Oh and she was born at 37 weeks...and was 5lbs 12oz 19 inches..
My first was born at 37 also...was 5lbs 14oz ...but he was his sisters weight now at 3-4 months......

In the first yr they tend to have tons of growth spurts and after a few it can slow down as well. He looks like a really healthy boy doesn't look overweight or to long looks a bit older but still looks healthy as can be. Just ask his ped all the questions you have and see what they say .
