I was talking to my kids dad yesterday and he was talking about my DD's weight. My DD weighs 26.6LBS. I admit i am councered about her weight as well because all the women on my side of the family have a weight problem. She is alot chunkier then my son was he has always been pretty skinny. My DD is almost 17 months now and loves to run and play. Her dad isnt a really big guy but i admit i do have a weight problem but i am working hard at that everyday. So is she over weight for her age? Any input would be great thanks.

I would say yes.  My 3 year old weighs a little over 30.  But I'm not a doctor.

I would go off of what your doctor tells you. My kids are always on the smaller side. So I am no help. My 4.5 year old is 35 lbs and 42 inch and my 2 year old is 22 lbs and 32 inch

How tall is she?

Almost 27 pounds seems a bit much for a 17 month old. My daughter is over the age of 2 and is 27 pounds but is also 35 1/2" so she is tall and thin.

I think most babies seem "over weight" at that age, shell probably even out when she gets taller...my DD did

She doesn't seem huge or small to me.

My son was 20 pounds by 6 months. By a year he was up to 26 as well. He just turned 2 and weighs 28. At some point there, he stopped gaining fat and started getting tall.

Your DD has a ways to go before I would be concerned about her weight.

That is just me. Good luck!

Ask you doc at her 18 month check-up....She is a baby still so I wouldn't be concerned. I have had two very chunky babies/toddlers that thinned out around 3 years old.

Quoting Honeybun09:

 My DD will be 3 in August and she only weighs 29lbs!!!

I would say ur DD is a little overweight, but she will probably "grow out of it"

My DD has always been tiny though.

If her DR isn't concerned I wouldn't be.
