How a 5-month-old baby outgrew his clothes at a surprising rate
Children grow faster in their first year than at any other stage in their lives, but one mum was shocked when her baby grew two sizes in just five months.
We know babies grow rapidly in those first few weeks and months, but for one mother, her newborn grew two sizes in just five months.
Sam from soliaifamily shared an adorable video of his baby’s incredible milestone from tiny newborn to “big” baby on TikTok.
“Nothing better than a big baby,” she wrote, revealing that her baby boy‘s incredible growth was courtesy of breast milk.
“Why are babies with rollers the cutest thing?” one person said.
“Yaaass – that’s good growth,” praised another.
Many moms might relate to having babies who have outgrown their tiny clothes.
“Good job mom!!! My two month old son is now wearing 6-9 month clothes. He is EBF,” one shared.
“My 3 month old is wearing 6-9m clothes,” said another.
“My son is 8 months old wearing size 5 pampers and 18-24 month clothes,” another shared.
Breastfeeding vs formula
There were a few negative comments about the breastfeeding/formula split, but many moms were supportive of Sam.
“It doesn’t matter how you feed the baby, formula or boyfriend as long as the baby is healthy, you did a brilliant job. It’s hard enough to be nice to others! someone said.
“Mine is formula fed and he is wearing 6 months to 2.5 months,” another shared.
But some people have commented negatively on the baby boy’s weight.
“omg has he seen a doctor?” one person wrote.
But the mothers stepped in to defend themselves, saying her rolls were perfectly normal.
“On top of all the negative comments, babies tend to lose weight when they start to move. It’s perfectly normal and even if he doesn’t, he’s perfect.
