95th percentile = obesity? *pic added PG 3*

Posted by   + Show Post
Anyone have a child in the 95th percentile for weight?

My sons ped told me to cut his calories because 95% = obesity. What?

He is 75% for height.

Is his Dr crazy? I don't see fat, much less obese when I look at my child...

My son is in the 75% on both hes muscular no fat. I think the height weight is odd it doesn't adjust for frame structure

My four year old is short and stocky. Not an ounce of pudge on him though. You can see his ribs lol. He also has a twenty percent difference in height and weight. Has his whole life. My ped days it's just different builds. The goal is to make sure that they grow consistently. Like a fifty five percent kid shouldn't be at eighty five percent a year later.
