Very tall baby


Anybody else have a tall one?

We were actually sitting somewhere today where there was another couple with a toddler. The mother asked how old mine was. I said she's one. And the father started snickering and looking off in the other directly and said, "Geeezz...she's as big as our two year old." And kept snickering and wouldn't look at me.

What???

I hope she won't run into TOO many people like that. What's wrong with being tall?

what horrible people you came across!
How tall is your lo on the %tile charts? Their 2 year old might be a shortie!
There is nothing wrong with being tall - who knows - she might become a world famous model or basketball star. Hopefully you never meet anyone with such a shallow outlook on life as that couple obviously were.

95th percentile tall.

I didn't think there was anything wrong with that!

Wow I can't believe she reacted that way??? My oldest was very tall and we got some comments but nothing actually negative. And then Hayden is super short and people always comment on how tiny he is. You really get it either way it goes

My Lo is tall on the 95% and has a big head over the 100% percentile

I somtimes have trouble with other mums thinking that she is older, which i think will get worse when she walks (As atm because she still crawls mainly you can tell shes baby) Like with sharing etc, or her generally acting her age! Sa at mum and toddlers etc.

Maybe they do have a little'un. here are 18 month olds that look alot smaller than my Lo. But i tell ya what, Shes strong and sturdy and i dont feel like she'll snap in two if something kncocks her over

There was no need to go on like that though, its not nice at all. I would have said something tbh

Lo's cousin, is 2 at the end of this month as has size 10 feet and is in 4-5 childrens clothes and is the same height as the average 4 year old. We have similar problems, like when he acts like a 2 year old, which obviously he DOES people look at him funny for not benig lke a 4 year old!

Morgans on the 96th centile, everybody thinks hes older than he is. Our widwife measured him at his 18 month check up and said he'll be around 6ft 4inch one day
but my friend whos now 23 was predicted to be around 6ft because she was such a tall toddler, she wasnt though, shes actually a tiny 5ft 2inch... So i wouldnt worry hun, its just shallow people, morgans already taller than our neighbours 4 & 3 year old boys, their parents are very short though!

I would have said 'wow your little one is a shortie' and started sniggering away too.

How f'ing rude!!!!

My little girl is VERY tall, takes after her 6ft 2 dad, where as I'm only a diddy 5ft 2. I see it as a blessing, I hate being short and glad she's going to be a fair bit leggier

My LO is off the chart (but only just ) and we haven't had any negative comments

Only thing we'll probably get is people assuming she's older than she is and they'll probably expect her to "do more" and forget she's only 13 months.

Harley is 18 months old and 34 3/4 inches tall. Her pediatrician said shes the tallest 18 month old he's seen yet. Her height was way off the charts. He put her down as 100th percentile but said she was more like 120th. She's wearing 2T

Sorry she upset you & was so rude

My LO is a little one; 10months old and still comfortably in 3-6month clothes. I know I have been guilty of staring at other bigger babies - mainly because I worry about G and am trying to figure out how small he is.
I would never say anything and cetainly wouldn't be thinking anything negative, I'm just a bit envious. I'm 5 foot 7 so tallish for a girl but his dad is only the same height as me and so quite small for a bloke & he really wants G to be taller than him, gets a bit upset each time G gets weighed and hasn't put on much weight.
