How much does your 4 year old weigh?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My DS is over 40" I'd say 41-42. He weighs 45lbs but has always been solid, not fat. Broad shoulders and all. The preschool sent home a letter saying he is in the obese range. Wtf? His doctor said he is average in both weight and height! He doesn't eat a ton of junk or anything really for that matter. I'm a little upset about it.

 He is adorable! If people don't see a pic of him do they assume he's overweight? I know they do with my son when I tell people he's 54 pounds.

Quoting prissypoptart:

My 5 yo is 75 lbs now. This time last year he was 50 and he is big. Just like u described. Hes built like a brick wall. I think as long as he is healthy, its none of their business momma!

DD will be 4 on New Years Eve.

She is..

42" tall and 30lbs

She is very small boned. She actually isn't that thin. She even has a booty and a cute belly. No bones sticking out at all.

Sorry I had to edit, he isnt 75 lbs he is 65 lbs now and I catch hell for it too. I think people assume a child is fat and dont consider muscle or bone density. My son is thick and strong.

My DD is 4 and 46" and 52 lbs. She's a big girl. She doesn't look fat, though :).
