  • nope. sounds perfect to me. ...once they are about 2 years old they should be about 10 pounds per year. 2yo should be about 20 pounds (give or take) 3yo should be about 30 pounds. 4 yo 40 pounds. ect ect. until about the age of 7 or 8.
    My DS is 3 years and 3 months and weighs in between 35-40 pounds, just about 3 feet tall. And he is perfectly healthy.

  • My 2 year old (3 in November) is about 34 inches tall and weighs about 30lbs. He's good for HIM. He's following his growth curve pretty well.

    If your daughter is following her growth curve, she's doing great! You also can't just go by weight. You have to figure in the height.

    My 3 year old weighs 35lbs (just turned three last December). That makes him a little heavy (higher percentiles) but when you figure in his height (40 inches!) he's a skinny minny.

  • My daughter sounds just about the same, and I don't think she is even chubby. Yours sounds just right.

  • if your doctor doesn't think she weighs too much I wouldn't worry about it. Heck I have a small 3 yo she weights 26.6 pounds. And is healthy and active. Kids like adults come in all shapes and sizes and are healthy. I would pose the question to her pediatrician. If they aren't worried you shouldn't be either.

  • My twins just turned 2 in Feb. My ds weighs 30 lbs, and my dd weighs 28. Your daughter sounds fine to me. I don't think she is overweight.
