  • Nah. My kids are both small for their age. I worry though that other people think that about my kids.

  • nope my DD is that way...She will be 3 in June and she is in 18 months clothing and 24 lbs...But the girl can pack away the food! She eats more then I do! She would eat all day everyday if I let her! And she eats healthy stuff too. She loves veggies...more then fruit...and eats alot of granola, whole grain crackers...anything really. She just takes after her dad. So I just assume, probably wrong, but I do anyway, that they are like my DD

  • No actually I think the exact opposite. I think what great parents that child must have to not let their kid become one of the millions that are 6 years old and weigh 100 pounds.

  • no I worry that they have/had a medical problem or that they are just really active. our son had heart surgery @ 3 months & is still 'skinner' then other kids his age & he eats like a horse... of course now he is so active I think itd be impossible to have him gain weight

  • Um... no.
    Especially if you saw my son walking around with my husband (or me, if I weighed what I did prior to having my son), it'd be completely obvious why my kiddo is incredibly skinny and little.
