im a little concerned about my middle DD's weight. she hasn't been weighed since her 24 month check up which was 5 months ago, but i think it's safe to say she's probably gained about 3 pounds since then, which puts her at around 30 pounds. my 4.5 year old only weighs 32! which isn't much in comparison considering my 4.5 year old is under weight. anyway, my 2 year old is also on the tall side, at around 37 inches. her height/weight proportions were great at her 24 month checkup, both in the 60th percentile. well she went through a bit of a picky phase and i couldn't get her to eat much. i still had her on whole milk at the time too. but she went through a big growth spurt lately i believe, because she can now comfortably fit into 3T clothing as most of her 2T clothing is getting snug. (unbelievably her and my 4.5 year old can BOTH wear some of the same clothing!)
i was an overweight child, maybe not at 2 but my parents let me eat anything i wanted, which was always junkfood. i'm not so lenient! their diets consist of healthy foods and healthy snacks, and i have to constantly monitor my 2 year old's milk intake because she is such a milk junkie. now i have cut her back to 1% and giving her more yogurts and cheeses instead. however this girl is still growing like a weed. the difference between her and my oldest, is she is so much meatier! my oldest is a stick, whereas my 2 year old has a bit of chunk to her. she has a bloated belly but it's hard, and she's had that from infancy. she was also a 10 pound child, very VERY chubby until she turned 1.
idk, i seem to always freak out about this stuff. she is acting fine (great actually, she had a speech delay and seems to be improving in all areas) but i still worry about their development, physically and other. how big is yours?
