Did you worry at all about her weight. I have silently worried about DS2's weight since he was 3 months old. I probably would have been far more relaxed if not for bad experiences at mother and baby groups and my Clinic Sister constantly going on about it.
i did, but then she is also off the charts for her height, so try not to worry too much. at one point i thought it was an overgrowth disorder, but so far the docs seem unconcerned. most babies weight seem to trail off after the 1st 9-12months, dd2 just seemed to carry on. by the time she was a year she was wearing clothes for 2-3year olds. she'll be 3 in sept, she wears tops for 5-6year olds as her head is rather large and cant get t-shirts on her otherwise. trousers are for 4-5year olds.
I have the same, DS2 is wearing 18-24 month clothing and his head is huge. His head circumference at birth was 39.5cms and they had predicted him to be huge (over 11lbs), so I was quite surprised when he popped out a relatively skinny little thing. He is also very tall.
its worse now she is older as people expect her to be acting older. when dd1 went to visit her new school, one of the teachers asked why dd2 wasnt going into the classroom to meet the teachers. errrrrr because she was just 2years old.
Know what you mean - somebody admitted to me the other day that they thought DS2 was a bit slow. They had expected him to be walking and talking as they thought he was about 18months old.
I did feel good though when I said he's 9months old and he is crusing the furniture and can say 5 words. I met a lady with a 7 month old yesterday who was bigger than DS2, now she really gets a lot of comments and looks off strangers.
my dd was altogether average in her size (3.5 kilos, or seven and a half pounds at birth, and about 10 kilos at one year). There is such a huge range of difference in their sizes. My friend has a rather slim toddler and has been berated by the clinic sister about nutrition. But this child eats everything put in front of her: she must have a fast metabolism.
I wouldn't worry about chubbiness until the child was at least three.
