My son was extremly late with all of his milestones. I think a lot contributed to this - but I don't think his size helped (we also have long torsos in our family, which means we are a bit top heavy as well and that can be a lot more for a baby considering their heads are super big and heavy to start off with! lol). Babies are really individuals and there are not many factors that contribute to this - I don't really think size makes that much of a difference in all honesty.
It was nice as a first baby though in the fact that he was much sturdier and I had something to hold onto! - I never felt like I was going to break him like you can do with some babies!...and as he was my first, and first baby I ever held ever...it was rather nice! hehe
But - I really just want a tiddler now! lol
I have a friend with a son who is over a year old and he is just in 6-9 month clothing...its super nice! Hes so cute and tiny and sweet! You could sling him for ever! (which did suck with my DS - 45lbs was my limit and he hit that well before he was 3 years old - yet he still really needed to be carried then as well).
