My dd who is 10 (definitely in the pre pubery stages) was told by excuse me but the walrus of a pediatrician at her 10 year old well visit that she had gained "too" much weight. She had gained something like 19 lbs in one year which makes her 90 lbs. But also she grew i forget now how many inches also in only one year. I'm 5'6" and shes about 5'1" To me she looks like a normal girl her age. She is pretty self concious at this age right now anyway. This dr. also recommended i keep an eye on her portion sizes. Of course i thought this was crazy because i make it a point to cook healthy and she eats school lunch. (Its not too bad around here) Anyway shes my oldest so is this normal?
