Hi.. My son is 35.5 inches and is 32 months.. I'm concerned that he is on the shorter side.. I'm 5'2 my husband is 6'0..I see this is an older post and would like to know if any moms that responded that also had 3 year olds on the shorter side ever had growth spurts and "caught up".. my son is very bright and healthy and I know height isn't something I should worry about but I do .. I worry he will be short as an adult .. Please help .. Thank you

My little monster turns 3 in one week. she is about 27.5 pounds and 37" (3' 1") at last doc appt last month. we will find out for sure on Monday.
She is the same weight as her cousin who just turned 2 last week, but is at least 6-8 inches taller.
it's impossible to find her clothes. 12-18 month for weight, but 3T for height.

She sounds pretty good sized to me! I don't know my four year old daughter Laura's latest weight and height. She wears 24m or 2T pants for length but they slide down easily! We've got some 18-24 month gerber training pants that still easily fit, too. Sort of silly, since she's been using the toilet for over a year without help.

My Son will be three on April 10th, 2012. He only weighs 25lbs. He is a healthy eater, lots of fruits, veggies, dairy, etc. My son is right at 3 feet tall I believe. We have no short people in our family. Both he and his dad are on the slim side, but that is mainly contributed to being healthy and active people. He also is very knock kneed. To the point where he complains about his knees hurting daily. I'm also at a loss for what to do.

My daughter is short too.. My daughter will be 4 years old in January and she is currently on her 9th percentile. She should be with the 80% but isn't. Doctors tell me it's because she has short people in her family. My mom is 4'9" and my sister is 4'11".

My son turned 3 August 22 2011. He is about 38 inches tall and weighs 29 pounds. we had to start him on one pediasure a day because he is a picky eater and doesnt like most foods some days he doesnt even eat dinner. My pediatrician syas he is fine and if he doesnt eat dinner try giving him another pediasure just so he gets the nutrients.

My son is three and a half and growing like a weed, eating everything that isn't tied down. While he is rather big, he is not fat. People seem to get that misconception when I tell them how big he is. he is broad in the shoulders, and thick, not even chubby. Currently, he is 44 inches tall and weighs about 60 pounds. He wears 5T and 6T, depending upon the style of clothing. His shoe size is 12 but with winter coming on, he will be going up a half size to a full size. Needless to say, he is a mini giant LOL

My son is 3 and almost 4 next month. He is in size 2 and 3 clothing, he was always small for his age, just the last year he has some growth spurts. For the longest time up to a year ago he was only in 18 to 24 months clothes, but now he is fitting in size 2 nicely and a little bit in size three, his father worries, but I say time will tell. You never know. His dad is 5'7, but his dad's natural father was 6'3, my family is a mixture of tall and short( like really short) and average height. So I say time will tell. :)
