I've got a giant baby. He started off big, and keeps getting bigger! He has been above the 99th percentile since birth. (Side note: It's a pet peeve of mine when people say their babies are in the 100th or 125th percentile. There is no such thing!) My husband and I are both tall and were large babies, so I was expecting to have a large baby, but it is presenting some challenges.
Right now he is five months old and I am still able to more or less cope with his size. But it seems like he is on the verge of outgrowing all his baby stuff. He barely fits in his baby tub, and I am not comfortable putting him in the big tub when he can't sit well on his own. Clothes are about to become a big problem. He is wearing size 18-24 months now, and things barely fit, especially since he wears cloth diapers. The next sizes are toddler clothes, but I don't want to be putting him in shirts that ride up all the time (as opposed to onesies). And the pants are all cut for long, slim toddlers and he still has super chubby baby thighs!
It's also getting really hard to carry him. I put him in the Ergo whenever possible, but still, I am starting to feel some back and shoulder pain. He often needs to be carried to be put to sleep, which I believe is normal for a baby his age. I cannot manage to carry him without the Ergo for more than a few minutes. It's also frustrating that other people (like grandparents) have trouble carrying him.
If anyone has any specific recommendations about products that worked for them, or general advice about coping strategies, I'd really appreciate it!
