how much does your three year old weigh?

my daughter just turned three on april 14th. i measured her height and weight today, and she is 38 inches tall and weighs 36 lbs. she has a doc. appointment tomorrow, and im kinda worried about her doctor telling me she is over weight. i checked her bmi with online somewhere and it said she was overweight. she doesn't over eat and doesn't eat a lot of junk. she has always been tall in my opinion, and always a size or two above her age in clothes.

  • Hi My daughter turned 3 in Feb and she weighs 40lbs.....I don't remember how tall she is...but it's normal. And her weight is perfect....she like in the 99th percentile for her age I think....BUT she's got a ripped 6pack and better Triceps than ME!! So I don't worry about it at all....she is just SOLID! And her sister is this tiny little princess...she's 22months and only weighs 27lbs!! So go figure!!

  • BMI measurements aren't even accurate for adults, let alone children!

    My son turned three in December. He's 40 inches and 35lbs. He's a scrawny little thing.

  • I wouldnt worry about it at all. My daugher turned 3 in October and she is 42 inches and 45 lbs. the doctor said it was fine because she was tall. Sound like your kiddo is among the tall kids and as long as she stays active and eats right I wouldnt worry to much about it.

  • My daughter is 3 and she weighs 35 pounds. When she was in the hospital about a month ago (long story) they weighed her and said that she was the perfect weight for her age. She's about 36 inches also.
