  • I think her height is fine, she's thin though. Look up her percentage on a growth chart to get a better idea.

  • My youngest dd was 5 lb and 15.6 oz when she was born. She'll be 3 1/2 in July. Right now she's about 37.5" and 33 lbs. So it doesn't sound too far off to me!

  • Mine turns 4 on July 6th. She is 40 pounds and 43 inches. She's pretty big for her age, though.

  • She is shorter than average. My 4.5 y/o is 37 inches tall and about 30 pounds, she is the average size of a 2 y/o. I don't ever worry about weight unless I know they are malnourished, speaking of my children only. She is small, there is nothing that can be done about height at her age so, just make reasonable accommodations for her. We have step stools everywhere for my daughter and we don't make a big deal about her size. My daughter's projected adult height is 4'9".

  • No women in my family or her fathers family is over 5'3 so we don't expect her to be super tall. I just wanted to make sure she was healthy. She eats all the time as well.
