Mother whose ‘very tall and chunky’ son, 11 months, fits into three-year-olds’ clothing puts it down to overproducing breast milk
- Alexa Priego, 31, from Manhattan, New York, gave birth to Kason 11 months ago
- Mother-of-three claims baby Kason was born a normal weight of 7lb 14oz
- Reveals he grew in height and weight after two months of breastfeeding
A mother whose baby wears clothes designed for three-year-olds has revealed that strangers have been left in shock by his size.
Alexa Priego, 31, from Manhattan, New York, gave birth to baby Kason 11 months ago and claims his size often fools people.
The mother-of three’s youngest son was born at a normal weight of 7lb 14oz but became huge after two months of breastfeeding.
Alexa, who works as a hospital administrator, said people often stop her in the street because they’re stunned by his size.

Alexa claims doctors told her 11-month-old baby Kason (pictured) is in the 99th percentile for weight and height
Now 11 months old, baby Kason weighs the same as a two-year-old and fits in clothing for three year olds.
Alexa said: ‘He is the heaviest baby in the whole world.
‘He’s very tall and very chunky – doctors said he is in the 99th percentile for weight and height.
‘When people see him they ask his age, and they are shocked when I say 11 months because they expect him to be older.
Alexa, who is also mother to Owen, 10, and Gracie, four, said people often expect Kason to be older than his age
‘People are so amazed by it – but when my daughter was born, she was exactly the same.
‘I guess I just make big babies!’
Alexa, who is also mother to Owen, 10, and Gracie, four, claims doctors told her that she overproduces milk which could contribute to Kason’s huge size.
After being breastfed for several months, he was moved onto formula and recently Alexa has been doing baby-led weaning.

Alexa said 11-month-old baby Kason is ‘easygoing’, crawls and can walk when he holds onto the side of the couch
She said despite what people might think, Kason is a totally healthy baby.
Alexa continued: ‘He is the easiest baby to look after – he’s so easygoing and always smiles at people.
‘He crawls and can walk when he holds onto the side of the couch and tries to stand on everything.
‘He is a very active boy. He crawls really fast too – he’s very speedy for a big boy!’
Alexa said people just can’t get their heads round his size.
She has friends whose two-year-olds weigh the same as Kason.
People have even stopped her in the street to question his age and their jaws drop when they learn he isn’t even one yet.
She added: ‘They expect him to be much older. Their reactions amaze me sometimes – I’m like, “Is he really that big?”. I guess I just make big babies.’
