You may want to get a second opinion.  My 3 year old is 42".

Looking at the pictures, he's the same size as my 8-year-old brother. I was REALLY short (smallest in my class) until I was twelve, then had this crazy growth spurt that shot me up to 5 feet, and then I stopped growing, lol. I'm 5' 1" now  :)

He'll be fine. He looks really healthy and happy.

i would most definitely get a second opinion... that isn't normal he could have something wrong with him and you wouldn't even know.. did the doctor do any tests or anything or did he just shrug it off and say that?

My 7 yr old is small to. 11th percentile for weight and height. The Dr's all say he is fine and growing well. He is not worried yet I am. It is a mom thing!
