  • Big tummies are pretty common at that age. They don't have the ab muscles built to hold their organs in better.

    You can always ask your dr, but if he's not showing any other symptoms like bad gas or constipation, there's probably nothing to worry about.

  • Don't do anything unless his pediatrician tells you to. He'll probably grow into that tummy as he gets older.

  • my middle one always had a big belly, and still does at almost 5. she doesn't have any bowel or appetite issues and it hasn't affected her growth or development so it's no biggie in her case. if you're worried ask the doctor

  • Your toddler has lost weight? That doesn't seem healthy. Toddler are supposed to have what resembles a beer belly, and usually you don't want toddlers to lose a significant amount of weight.

  • How did he lose weight? A tummy is normal.

    Answer by mompam at 2:02 PM on Oct. 22, 2013

  • You do nothing. He's a freaking toddler. He hasn't been to the gym yet so a tummy is NORMAL for his age.
