How big is your 5yo?

We were just at the peds today. My son is right on track where he should be, but he ranks in the 99th percentile. So I'm wondering what is "normal" and where everyone elses kids rank...

My son is 47in tall and 53lbs.

  • Hmm. I will have to measure him tomorrow. I know he is very tall for his age, and skinny. Last time we weighed him he was 48 lbs. He is almost at my arm pit! And is wearing size 7 clothing. Now I am curious as to how tall he is.

  • At 5 my son was 51.5 pounds and 46.5 inches. Which put him in the 95%+ for his height/weight. He's now 7.5 and roughly the size of the average 10 year old.

  • My 5yo daughter is 43" and 34lbs. She's always been kind of tall and very skinny for her age.

    You're 5yo is almost as big as my 8 1/2yo dd. She's 49" (4'1") and 55lbs. My almost 11yo is 4'3" (51") and only 50lbs. She's not even on the charts any more.

  • Mine is 45in and 44lbs
    He was somewhere in the 90th percentile for height and... I think 75th for weight. Don't quite remember
