Our daughter is tall for her age. She's never been chubby at all. She's 15 months and as big as a lot of 3 year olds. In size 3 clothing. People always comment about how she doesn't need size 3 etc and then they see her in size 3 and realise you can't go any smaller.
But I was over a meter when I was 2yrs old. So her height doesn't surprise me.
I used to think that I wish we had a chubby baby as DD never had the whole baby Chubb thing going on. But I think she's perfect.
All babies are different and you'll get comments either way. You just have to come up with some great responses.
