Hi. Our 5 1/2 mo old baby weighs in at 21 lbs 4 oz. That is around the 97% range. She only weighed 7 lbs 4 oz when she was born. Needless to say, she flew through baby clothes early sizes, and now seems to be somewhere between 9-12mos and 12-18 mos. clothing. Of course, that depends on whether it's cheaper or more expensive items. Anybody have any useful tips or suggestions about handling large babies? I love holding and carrying her, but lap numbness and back pain are becoming more frequent. Thanks.
