He had his 18mth needle and checkup yesterday, so of course had the height and weight done too.

I nearly died!!! Hes 90cms ohmy.gif and 12.7kgs

Now I know hes tall for his age, but was wondering what others about his age are?

74cm and 9.2kg.  Poor little runt.  He's happy and healthy though, maybe he'll make a good jockey.

89cm and 12.4kg. He doesn't seem big to me though, only seems tall when standing next to other 18mo's.

Little dude is 13.4kg at 16 mo.  Haven't measured his height.  Not fat though, I can see his ribs and little hip bones.   He eats so much but just runs it off.

DS is 12 months and 78cm, 11.75kg  blush.gif he is in size 2 clothing and I shudder to think how huge he will be in another 6 months, he doesn't walk and my back is already killing me.

I'm booked in this week for his vaccinations so I don't know his exact measurements, but he'd be around the 11-12kg mark and approx 90cms, too.

I'm not sure about height but he is about 11.5kg,  probably shorter than average and a size 1.

My DS is 89 cms and 14 kgs.  He has always been at the top of the charts and was 4.75 kgs born.  

He is certainly not fat though, very much in proportion.

My 13 month old is 89cm and 10.5kg...(total bean pole) my sisters lad born on the same day is 96cm and 16kg.

But our five kids are what are known as 'floating dots' on the height charts....they don't actually fit on the charts (one of the five is in the '97th percentile' - the rest the nurse just looks blankly at where to put them lol)

Hilariously, I'm shortish (165cm) but on both sides most people are over 6ft so it stands to reason that the kids will be tall. Car seats are not made for our kids though...and they look ridiculous at child care just before they start school...

My daughter at 12 months was 81cm (boys are normally 2cm taller the whole way along) and 11.5kg. She's in size 2 as well. Thankfully she now walks but i have to keep adjusting everything for her size. Her carseat could rear face to 12 months apparently... yeah we made 9 sad.gif and it's a newer seat that allows them to rear face longer  mad.gif

Based on the bluebook graph she'll be 93cm by her 2nd birthday so i'd say 88cm or so at 18 months.

My DS is only 17 months but 80cm and only 9.4kg. He hasn't out on weight since he was 8 months old.

My pocket rocket is 19mths and 9kgs sad.gif and 85cms.  Her heights is great but weight no so good.  Drs are ok with it after every test etc...she is our happy Little laughing clown and that's ok with me.

Sunnycat...my dd hasn't put any weight on either and still gets into her sisters old 6month clothes. Still a size 0 but am assured all good.  Her sister on the other hand was off the scales in the other direction..this monkey doesn't even rate on the scales!  Funny how siblings so can be so different!

Dont worry yourself. My daughter is 17 months, 75 cms and 8.2 kgs!   No family history to account for it either. 9.4kgs is awesome !!

Chiming in late but since I weighed ds today I can say he is just turned 17 mths and 10.3 kilos and 78 cms tall.   Size 0 but moving into size 1's.

I am often told he is lean or small but looking here he seems fairly average original.gif

18 months, 12.7kg and 87cm - when he is walking around with just his nappy, he looks like Gollum. Skinny legs, skinny arms, barely any hair, spine  stiƧking out.  Lol

Oh dear my 13mth DS is almost 90cm and is 12.5kg!!
Just about every week a stranger will ask how old he is, when I tell them they say ooh he's a big boy isn't he. I smile and say yes he is.

Tall and slender but solid my boy is original.gif
