Baby 11 month old weighs almost the same as his five-year-old sister, and is nearly half the size of his mum. Arley is not even one but already wears clothes meant for three-year-olds and tips the scales at more than double most boys his age. The youngster is so long he reaches mum Mollie Apps’ hips when standing upright.
Mom Mollie Apps, who is 5ft 3in said:” He is ᴍᴀssɪᴠᴇ. He weighs almost 3st so he is quite ʜᴇᴀᴠʏ, and he is currently in two-to-three-years clothing. Honestly he’s amazing. He’s not just chubby but ʙɪɢ long ways, just in every way possible he’s big. The size difference between him and his five-year-old sister is ᴄʀᴀᴢʏ. She weighs 3st 4lbs but Arley definitely feels much, much bigger.” Despite his chunky appearance, Mollie said Arley clocked a comparatively unremarkable 10lbs when he was born on May 17, 2021, and showed no signs of being a larger baby until months later.
She said:” They say babies lose weight once they’re born, but Arley only ever put it on. No could we have predicted Arley would be so big.” Arley doesn’t eat that much generally, he knocks back three kid-sized meals a day. He also ‘loves his fruit and milk’ but has just two to three portions every 24 hours. He does love a bit of choccie every now and then, especially when he sees his sister eating some. Most of the time, Mollie and her partner don’t think much of their son’s size, but it poses a problem for his petite mum when climbing the stairs in her apartment block. Mollie said: “I live on the top floor. It’s only three floors but there is no lift so I definitely feel like I should have bigger arm muscles than what I have right now. It isn’t caused from carrying Arley, but it’s from my C-section which I had to have because Arley was too ʙɪɢ to come the other way. I’m going for an ᴏᴘᴇʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ to get it sorted in a few weeks, but I can’t do any ʜᴇᴀᴠʏ lifting afterwards so I don’t know how I’m going to carry my boy.”
Mollie, who works in administration for a pharmaceutical company, said she couldn’t love her son more – and everybody else does too. She said:” People always say what a beautiful boy he is and how happy he looks. They also say he looks like a two-year-old. I get that a lot. Or he should be in the Guinness World Records book. I’d love that.”
