My twins just had their 3 year check up, and I was surprised at how little they had grown since last year. from birth to 2 years my daughter was consitently between the 80th and 100th percentile for height and between the 50th and 60th percentile for weight. At 3 she is only in the 50th percentile for height and 40th percentile for weight. My sone was in the 75th or higher percentile for height and 25th or below for weight through his 2 year check up. At 3 years he is in the 40th percentile for height and 5th percentile for weight. The slight decreases in weight percentiles I don;t find too alarming, but the significant decrease in height percentiles do seem really odd. My husband and I are both pretty tall, so we expected them to stay at least above the 50th percentile for height. The pediatrician said it could just be that they are a little behind because they are twins or a lot of other reasons.
