my daughter just turned 3 and is 24 pounds. he has been for 3 months now. WIC is freaking out but her doctor seems un concerned because she is developing adn growing on 'her curve'. She is consistantly in the 6% or lower. Who is right? Is she too small? I dunno how tall she is. She wears 24 month clothes but they have to have and adjustable waist.

I think that is too little. My son's dr told me that he should consistently, even if slowly gain weight. My son is 4.5 years old and weighs 38lbs. He is also 45inches tall.

from what I can tell the people at WIC are morons. Don't listen to them. If your doctor says she is fine then she is fine. They are the ones that went to medical school. The WIC people get their infor off a little sheet of paper from the government.
My oldest dd was always tiny. She was only 20lbs when she turned 2 (same weight she was at 18 months). At 3 she was like 26lbs, I think. I know she started kindergarten and was 32lbs with her clothes. She's 10 now and only weighs 47lbs. I'm not sure if she is even on their little chart any more. Her doctors were never worried as long as she ate healthy.
