Looking for a bit of advice. My 3 month old is on the 91st percentile for everything. He's very long and wears age 9-12 month clothes, size 4 nappies and is very nearly too long for the bassinet bit of his pram, but because he isn't 6 months he can't use the other upright pushchair attachment.

The next to me crib is nearly too small but i dont want to move him out of our room yet.

Any ideas what to do?

My little one is also 91st percentile although she’s 12 months now. At 3 months she went off the pram anyway and we used a combination of baby carrier/ sling and car seat on buggy wheels until she could use the buggy - it’s ok to do the buggy once they sit independently which may well be before 6 months, for us it was at 5 months. You can also get buggies that tilt back like prams which ours does and you can use them tilted back earlier. We swapped to a full size cot with the side removed and against our bed at around 4 months I think, that might be an option? Also just buy whatever size works, we’re now in age 2 clothes and size 5 nappies. It probably is helpful to warn relatives they’re in a bigger size so you don’t get too small clothes as presents though.
