How tall is your 3 year old?

Mine just went in for her 3 year checkup, height was 40" and I swear it happened overnight! We went to WIC literally a few weeks ago and it was still in the high 30's. She's always been and probably will always be tall, she started out in the 50th for height and now her height is off the charts LOL. Her weight has always been in the 25th, so it is IMPOSSIBLE to find pants for her, since she's petite and tall. Just curious on the height of other 3 year olds.

  • I am not sure exactly. At his 3 year check up in Feb he was 42 1/2". They said at his last visit he too was off the chart. He pediatrician couldn't believe how tall he was. His father is 6'2" so looks like he will be tall like his dad. I am only 5'2" and he is just under my armpits. He also now weighs in at 38lbs. I too have trouble finding pants for him.

  • My poor child, I read these posts and its makes me so aware of just how short he is. He'll be 4 in january and he's only 37 inches tall... he was 35 at his 3 year check up, so he's making some progress lol. I don't actually have any idea what he weighs we don't own a scale and he hasn't been to the dr.'s in months. Guess I'll find out in january.

  • my 3 1/2 year old is 37 inches tall and about 30 pounds. She's a little one but she was also 16 1/2 inches at birth and under 6 pounds. So I am happy.
