hi everyone...
dd is 9 weeks just a bit concerned that she is so long!! she is now in sleepsuits for 6-9months!!! she's not out of proportion or anything, but just incredibly long!!!! Is this something 2 be worried about???

I wouldnt thimk so.
She will be tall and beutiful!!!! are you tall? Is she on the same similar centile for weight and height?

Don't worry.... my baby is nearly 7 months and I think we have virtually skipped the 12 -18 month vests (after investing in a load) and on to the next. All babies are different in terms of height/weight etc. Without this difference, we wouldn't have the centile charts, would we??

Don't worry. My dd is 8 weeks old on Monday and is outgrowing her 3-6 month sleepsuits - and she isn't fat either! I will be buying 6-9 month ones this week.

mine never did 0-3 lasted in 3-6 for a short while. DS4 is 9 months and fast growing out of upto 12 months. I think they size them small so we buy stuff we dont need!!!!!

I think this is quite normal. DD was always in bigger sizes than her age and don't forget sizes in each shop vary.

my ds1 was always bigger on top than bottom so couldnt buy 2 piece sets!!!!
ds3 is looking the same he is in age 4 tops and 3 bottoms..he is 2!!!

Hi guys! Sorry not much time 2 be online lately!! Very rude of me
Thanks 4 the reassurance... was seriously worried Felicity will be a real life '50ft woman'!!!
we went to the doctors on thurs for her 1st jab
she made all the other babies look like 'dollies'... when i found out they were 12 weeks old i got a bit concerned!
with the chart things... if i understand it right, she's on the 95th percentile... seems to be on line in length and weight too.
-as for the jab, she slept through it (screamed for 10secs then passed out again!) think i was more sad than her!!!
thanks again...

I am starting to think there is a clothing company conspiracy... tiny dinky stuff... at least in Zara the staff were good enough to tell me that their stuff is small (european skinny babies??)
she was only in 3-6 months for one month max...oh well there goes another 70 quid!!
hmmm guess i'll have to keep it all and hope later i have another girly!! (hmm, not too sure what dp will make of that )
p.s. the zara stuff is lovely... and their sales are fantastic!! they don't really have things like sleepsuits or vests etc, but I got a lovely reversible red jacket that will be lovely and snug when it gets colder for £10 and amazement!! I highly recommend!!
p.p.s. no, i don't work for zara!

I love zara too, its great. Love their childrens shoes also, but never been brave enough to buy as not sure about the fitting.

My dd was always 95 centile also. she is now2.5yrs but not exceptionally tall, just prob at the top range for her age.
