Is it normal?

Postby tanya » Sat Jan 10, 2009 2:13 pm

Is it normal for a baby to grow 6cms in 3.5 months? Bella has shot up in the last 3 months, since her 12 months check, from 76cm - making her quite short - to 82cm - which is quite tall for her age....

DH is 6'4" and I'm 5'3", so I wouldn't be surprised if she ended up quite tall.

She's still only 21lb, which means she's not skinny, but certainly not fat.

My main problem is she's fast outgrowing clothes length wise, but if I get the next size up, they hang off her body, but are the right length. Does that make sense?

I can remember Zac doing this at about Bella's age. He is a skinny little thing but really shot up almost overnight. It's only his nappy that holds his trousers up. :hohoho: :hohoho:

I have two tall skinny rakes :mrgreen: And yes they do sometimes grow inches within a short space of time.

Well, Bella now wears 12-18m or 18-24m tops, for the length, but wear 6-9m trousers (her legs are v. short :hohoho: ) and any bigger than this and they won't stay up around her waist.

I hadn't realised they shot up quite like that. It's nice that she's tall and skinny rather than short and dumpy like mummy :)

Zach does this. I used to really notice on popper nappies/wraps as I'd be worried that they would be too small on his thighs and suddenly we were moving back down poppers and buying new pants!!!!

Connor's the same, and now that he's out of nappies there are a couple of pairs of trousers he can't wear as he exposes himself every few steps :lol: . Although he's taken to exposing himself on purpose lately, but that's a whole different topic :lol: :lol:

Very normal, our kids have all eaten huge amount when they are going through a growth spurt, Kieran and Anna still do!! Our are all tall and skinny so getting things to fit in the leg and waist is a nightmare, adjustable waist trousers help but they say the button on the elastic hurts their waists!!!!
