My son is a little over three months old and weighs in around 19 pounds. He is way off the charts for both height and weight. He is over 28 inches long. I have never heard of a larger baby at his age. Most people think he is 8 or 9 months when they see him.
I have read that waiting 6 months to start solids is best, however doc suggested starting early and my baby is extremely large,yet proportionate. He is interested in what he sees on the table and is already making chewing motions with his mouth when he sees food.
Does anyone think my son would be an exception to the six month rule? My gut is telling me that he is thriving and bm is all he needs, however he is the size of an average 9 month old - and I am questioning if his caloric needs will continue to be met.
