my dd's doc says she's overweight and needs to lose the extra pounds

My DD is actually slim. She's in the 97th percentile for height (40.55 in), 95th percentile for weight (41.46), and 92% for bmi (17.72). I don't understand how she's overweight in anyway. Did any of your kids docs say they were overweight when they're not?

If the height and weight are on target together she is not over weight. How old is she? Whats the height and weight?

But she's always been like this. She was 98% all the way around when she was born.
