Everyday that I am out with her shopping there is always someone I know or just a complete stranger that has come up to me and say "gee isn't she a big girl." I find it quite rude as it is none of there business how big or small my baby is. She is a healthy, beautiful, and a very happy baby and I wouldn't have any other way.

I think its disgusting the comments we get with our 'little' girl too. She is 6 1/2 months today weighs 6.6kgs (weighed today) and is 69cms long. She still fits 0-3 month clothing, so we've had a good run. but she is happy healthy and to me that's all that counts. I don't go around critisising the size of other adults, so why should they put that pressure on our little ones??
I saw a baby today that was 2 weeks older than Mckenzie, and weighed 9.36Kgs or about 20 pounds 9 ounces! and he didnt look at all that big, and he was just as gorgeous as my little bundle! Hell I LOVE chubby babies!! hahaah Enjoy them while they are small, we'll never get this time again!
Love kel and Mckenzie xoxoxo

I doubt the breastfeeding baby smaller than bottle feeding baby, my boy is 100days tomorrow, but already 8.4kg and 68cm long! I think he is far above average. I though about if i overfed him but everybody told me there isn't overfed thing when breastfeeding..
I am going to add solids when he gets 5 mths old,
Claudia , mum to Ian and MuLan
He is 80 cm tall, which i've been told "he's enormous!!!"
He does have chronic reflux which is controlled by tablets.
Has 2 solid meals a day (as advised by my doctor)
and between 3-5 bottles a day depending on his growth spurts and mood. One of them is a cereal bottle... it has 3 tespooons of banana custard added to it (the powdered kind) i use a cereal teat for it made by nuk.
He has 8 teeth, 4 up top and 4 down the bottom, has been crawling since he was 5.5 months old, he's almost walking. He just loves to stand by himself and clap his hands. He's taken a few steps.
Says "dad, dad, dad" "baba" "tay" (sister's name is taylah) "car" "bye-bye" and his newest one "what's that".
take care all

Ben has 3 meals of solids a day - not a lot except at dinner, and several breastfeeds. He is just starting to walk so I expect he will slim down from here on. his last months weight gain was 350 grams, before that it was 800 - 900 grams a month so he has already slowed down a lot.
He is adorable but very heavy to carry around so I am glad he's starting to walk.
