Okay, I realize my 6 year old is the smallest kid in the school K-6, and everyone always is shocked when I tell them how old she is.....


She turned 6 in Jan, is 40 3/4in tall and is 35.5 lbs....(She wes measured the other day). Wears size 4t clothing!!


She was not a Preemie, and was a normal birth weight (7lbs 14oz) , has no medical issues (They tested her for 37840283 things)


Anyone else have tiny kiddos?

My 6 year old is 38lbs and 42-43 inches I think... he wasn't early or anything. He's one of the smallest kids in his class

My DD was a tiny thing. She was 7lb, 15 at birth and then never took off in growing or gaining weight. I don't remember how small she was in kinder, but she was definitely one of the smaller kids (and the youngest in her grade.)

She started growing between 2nd & 3rd grade and gained 11, yes, 11 lbs! and 3 or 4 inches. She is now 12 in the 7th grade (still the youngest), 5 ft nothing with a B cup. She might weigh 95 dripping wet.

Some kids are just small. And I'd rather it be my girl that my boys. There are a couple of boys in DD's class who aren't yet her height and going on 14. It's much harder for them.

Her brothers, however, are tall. Guess she got her "runt" genes from me.

DD6 was 6 lbs 3 oz and 19 in when born, now she's just over 4 ft tall, size 13 shoes, and around 50 lbs. I've had ppl ask me if she's 7 or 8 when she was 4.

DD5 will start kinder in the fall. She is about 39 or 40 inches and weighs 36 pounds. She is the second shortest kid in her class! I am only 4'11, so it is not a shock that she is small! I am a student teacher and observed a kinder class this past Spring. We had one little boy, age 6, who was about 4'9 and weighed close to 95 pounds! The smallest kid in our class was probably about your dd's size!

The school that I was at had 5th graders that were close to 6 feet tall! Nothing like having an 11 year old ask me what grade I'm in! (the kid was trying to be funny because I am short!)

My son who will be 6 in a few weeks is 44 in. and 47 lbs. He seems to be about average sized compared to other boys in his class.

I have a small one. My dd is 7 1/2 and is 37lbs and 42in. She is supposed to be in 2nd grade but skipped a grade so her size is even more noticable! In k she was alot smaller about 38in and 33lbs. She was 7lbs when born but has always been small.
