My son is 3 and is very tiny. His Peds has ruled out any midgets or dwarfism. He weighs just 23lbs and he is 33 and half inches. His baby brother is 5 months old and weigh close to 17lbs and probably now at 27inches.
He is starting preschool this year but even the teachers question his age until i tell them his birthday.
He is adapting well to it, and people not me but friends of ours and some family members say to him u better start growing ur baby brother is catching up. I mean it's ok now for them to say it, its just when he is like 5 or 6 and i am afraid his self esteem will go down. I tell them not to do it anymore.
But my concern is when he is like in kindergarten and other boys start pushing him, or calling him names. or even worse judgeing that private part size saying mine is bigger than yours type deal. How can i comfort him and make him realize it is ok to be short and he doesn't have to be upset by it.
Or like when his brother is 3 and is the same size as him when he is 5 and wearing the same size clothes. I am afraid then when take him to school and he is getting registered they look at him and his brother and ask which one needs to get registered. I am scared for him
