My 3 year old son was born 3 weeks early by request of my OB because he was so small and she thought he would do better outside. to begin with i told he is small because he is small, and i am only 4ft 11inches without shoes and with shoes i get to 5ft. And my husband is on the average side. At birth my son weighed in at 5lbs 4oz and 18inches. He is now 3 years old and weighs in at 23lbs, 33inches. The dr put him on Pediasusre to see if that will help him and he has been on it since he was 1 and it doesn't seem to be working. She said keep him on it at least until 5 but it won't hurt if he skips it sometimes. he is in the 3rd percientle for weight and hight.
My baby is 5months old and he was born 1 week early and weighed in at 8lbs 30z and 20inche. his last check up was his 4 month one and he weighed then 16lbs 2oz and 26inches long and has so far been in the 75th percenitle.
My 3 year old eats fruits, not much veggies, he eats lot of chicken, and dairy products. But i don't know why is is not gaining much weight. He is very active and is constantly running around.He loves the outdoors and in spring through fall he is outside on nice day playing with boys older than him and 1 his age.
was wondering if anyone else has smaller boys and how u handle having a smaller child, and the younger child is almost as big as his older brother. I mean someone asked me if they were twins, until they realized one is an infant and the other is not
