    Alasdair is 75th percentile for his weight and above 75th for his height and he's almost 9 months old yet he still fits in a lot of his 3-6 month clothes. How strange is that? I'm not forcing him in. His trousers all fit perfectly and the majority of his tops do too. I'm confused.

    bloody hell, chloe is in 12-18 months now (8 months 3 weeks old!)

    Mind you, she's way over taken Ally now- 95th for weight and 105th for height :dohh:

    I find that clothes from some shops last longer than others- next and matalan seem to come up bigger than most, and for some reason tesco clothes are tiny

    Sometimes it just has all to do with the brand of clothes and sizes.

    I know that Lola can actually still fit in her 0-3s in some clothes and then again just barely fits in her 3-6 in other.

    Dec is mostly 18-24 but he still has a few 12-18 that still fit, I seem to have a bit of a problem with Next, Dec has some 12-18 jeans that fit his perfectly but he also has some 18-24 jeans that are shorter than the 12-18 !!!! same shop, same make so why the difference. All his tops are now 18-24 with a few 2 year ones.

    so whilst I'm glad that other people are finding their kids fit different clothes it still doesn't explain it! Alasdair is a big boy, it's not like he's little! Today I found a (discarded) teeshirt in his room and thought it looked cute so put it on him. Only later did I realise it was a tescos newborn teeshirt! It's like he's going backwards or something. He went into 6-9 month clothes at 4 months and I'm sure he didn't fit into his 3-6 month stuff which is why I moved him up. Maybe he just really thinned out? But then the length thing! that confuses me. oh well, I guess at least he has clothes to wear!

    I think so, and maybe the fact that he's feeding himself 100% of the time now so chooses what he needs and not what I think he needs! I get him weighed monthly (when I can be bothered) so maybe next wk will say something (eek they're 9 months next week Vickie and Amy!!!)

    My baby is a big boy too like Ally.

    In terms of kilograms he is off the scale the HV use.

    To look at him he is big but not massive. So I think he is solidly built and has a heavy skeleton, which he would get from me because I am heavy in terms of kg but look slim. Does Alasdair look small/ med/ large?

    My boy has also lost a bit of flab from round the tum recently. I can now get his trousers buttoned and he can wear some 9-12 trousers that were too tight for him a couple of weeks ago.
