  • 2
    Because my DD is almost 4 and weights 33 pounds and the doc says thats perfect so I couldnt imagine a kid over twice her age being only 10 pounds heavier

  • Need more info to decide. One sounds on the very thin side and the other on the heavy side. My oldest was 45 inches and 45 pounds when he was 8 and was small for his age, but healthy as a horse.

  • i second "neither". the first one is short - my 4 and a half year old is already 42 inches tall and weighs 32 pounds. the second one is taller but 92 pounds is a lot for an 8 year old.

  • tnm786- You obviously lack understanding, lol You think 48 pounds is too much for 48 inches? Not unless you like skeletons.
