My son is four and he has always been skinny. he has LONG limbs and is very tall for his age but it worries me that he is SO skinny. I can see his ribs and spine. his doctor says he's not mal nutritioned and that he is normal. is it ok for him to be THAT boney? is it normal?

My daughter is a waif too. She got it from her fathers side. LONG LEAN arms & legs. It's genetics honey! People tell me that my daughter looks too thin, & i tell them "well i cannot feed her anymore than she already eats" Seriously, my daughter eats like a little piggie. Our kids have whats called the "skinny gene"....most people would DIE to have the skinny gene. Your son will most likely never be over weight no mater what he eats. This is what her Dr. (my dad) told me about my daughter. She is perfectly healthy & if anyone suggests otherwise to me & i get pretty annoyed about it. I know she is healthy, she eats like a horse...what else can it do? Not much...
she just has the skinny gene...she could be a model one day though, she is gorgeous.
