Jacob was born 9pd 1ounce - and 53cm long.
AT his six month injections last Thursday he was 10.9kg and 74cm long. He was born on 30/12/04.
He is proportion too - sounds like you and I just make big babies!
Dont fret about it - I just tell them "yep big boy - one day he'll be big enough to carry me around".
I get comments about his big head and I also just say "big head - big brain".
Ignorance is bliss to some people - so I just have a slight dig at them and I feel better.
Enjoy your baby!
big babies a great....

my little man was born Dec last year weighing 3.92kg and 51cm long at his last weigh in at 6mths he was 10.05kg & 71cm, i actually love the look on people's faces when they say what a beautiful little boy how old is he about 1yr old? and i say nope 6mths lol and until a few weeks ago he was fully breastfed lol so i wouldn't worry about it i prefer a big healthy baby, gives them something to fall back on if they get sick.

I just wanted to say that I am right with you re. ALL the big baby comments. It's frustrates me too.
I know that it's great that the babies are big and healthy and that if they get sick they have reserves..... I'm not denying any of that.
I just wish that every time a person sticks their head in my pram to look at my baby they could think of something a little more tactful to say than "My god what a big baby!". I had someone (a small man at that) tell me my boy was a monster once. I very cooly said "yeah, he'll be bigger than you soon". The guy just looked at me, to which I smiled very sweetly back. A bit narky, but hey, people should think a bit before they speak.
My baby had no choice but to be big, I'm 5 ft 10 and my hub is 6 ft 4. Our baby was 4.2kgs born and 53 cm long.
At the other end of the scale, my SIL had a small baby and got comments galore about how tiny her bub was.... it was just as annoying.
I guess a positive you take from these peoples bizarre attitudes (and comments) is to be aware of your comments towards other mum's and the beautiful bundles.

At 6 weeks old he was 6 kg
He will be 1yr old on Friday and he weighs in at 15kg and has been that weight for a good couple of months
He is not as fat as you are probably visioning though he is just a big boy but is well in proportion.
He is quite tall, about the average height of a 2-3 yr old.
Jordan has never even fitted his measurements on the graph
But you know what, he is the happiest child you would ever meet and is a delight to look after.
He does not eat allot despite what most people just presume, and eats very healthily. I was always very worried and spoke to the doctors but they all think he is fantastic and perfectly healthy
Go the big kids!
