  • That is normal. My children are 7, 5, and 4 and all weigh about 35 lbs. If he does not look too thin, and you know he is eating and healthy I wouldn't worry about it.

  • Your son is fine. My daughter is 4 and just hit 32 pounds. My son is 2 1/2 years and is 28 pounds. Both of my guys are very tall and thin. My neighbor has an 22 month old that is 35 pounds and shorter than my son. He is very stocky. All kids are built differently. As long as your pediatrician does not have any concerns there is no reason to worry.

  • My son is 2 1/2 and he weighs 27 lbs. I think it also depends on the height my son is more towards the short side. We are not very tall people LOLz.

  • Your son is in a totally normal weight range. My neighbor's son is 2 1/2 and he weighs 22 pounds and is normal and healthy in every way. My son just turned two and weighs 24 pounds, which is on the small side, but still 100% healthy and normal. I would only be worried if he stopped growing and had weighed 29 pounds and been the same height for many months. If you are not a member of the CafeMom group for the month and year your son was born, I would highly recommend that. I have found it very helpful to know the developmental range of 500+ other toddlers, all of whom were born in December 2006 along with my son.
