I said not sure. I wanted to put sometimes. Not my oldest, but my middle child I do sometimes worry about. She's 3 (4 in January) and weighs 39 lbs. She's solid...she doesn't look fat at all but sometimes I worry bout her. Her dr thinks she looks great though so I try not to worry. Lol

Nope my dd is so active, she by far burns more calories than she takes in.

I voted yes, not for my 6 and 9 year old, but for my unborn baby, my  DH has struggled with weight his whole life,  and so does his entire family! Kinda nervous :-S

I worry about it a lot but I dont obsess over it. At 5.5 my son is 45% for height and 25% for weight. My family is all very thin (except mom who gained during chemo and me because of a 3 month steroid treatment). His fathers side however areall obese. I worry that even though my son has always been small and the dr thinks he will always be thin, that he will become over weight like his fathers side of the family.
