1 Bump

Weight and size

So I was wondering, how much does you child weigh when he was around 18-19 months old? My son was born 9 weeks early so he's smaller then most kids! But he has a hard time gaining weight! He's 20 pounds maybe a little more and I'm just wondering about other son eats like a little pig...he eats everything that I give him and he's very healthy!

  • My son was very big for his age. At 18 months he was 30 inches and 28 lbs. He just barley turned two and is 33 inches and 32 lbs (he's perfectly squad!) My 3 yr old (almost 4) is barley taller then him.

  • my 2 yr 3 month boy weighs just 26 lbs, I think he weighed 20 at 18mths, your son sounds perfect. At 2 my son had a growing spurt and shot up in height, he is 36in tall!

  • wow that is crazy! I guess I'm not used to it because my son is so tiny for his age! When he was born he weighed 4lbs. 0.6oz! But the doctors say he's doing great...his height is good and everything...he's got great learning skills :)

  • DS1 was 28 lbs at 18 month checkup. He was born 4 days late at 9lbs though. I'm 5'9" and the shortest person in my family. Not only do you hav to take into consideration that he was early, but also his family history. But as long as he is eating and gaining weight period, he is fine.

  • Well I'm 5'2" and his dad is about 5'9" I think and yes that is what they told me too! That I shouldn't worry about it because he's learning everything like he should be and like I said his eating isn't a problem! He eats everything that I give him but I remember when I had him and brought him home and all they said after the first year he should be all caught up in the weight and he's not it kinda concerns me a little bit...

  • My son was 17lbs at 18 months. He has a growth disorder but around that time he started to eat much better. Now he is 21 months and stays around 18lbs.
