Mine turns 4 January 8th. She's tall and lean; so much so the doctor actually asked me if she was eating well at our last appointment. I guess her BMI (which is a new measurement for children, at least to me) was only the 10th percentile. She is 38" and weighs 31 pounds; most of which I think is in her head ;)

Glad you switched doctors. Our daughter saw one like that in the beginning. She had been 6 weeks premature and spent the 1st 3 weeks in NICU and then one of the doctors in her old pediatric office told us at 4 months she needed to be put on a diet. Seriously. She'll be 3 Dec 03 and is at 31 #'s, 37 inches tall.

My daughter was 3 in Feb but her Ped. is concerned about her growth so we go every 6 months for a growth check. We went yesterday and she was up 1lb and 1 1/2 in since May. She's all of 26.25 lbs and 35.5 in. Although I'm 5'2 and her father is 5'4. And since the dr's had the same concerns about me and my younger sister I'm not at all concerned. She's just gonna be small.

MY daughter has always been on the tall side. She turned 3 in June and she is 40lbs and 42inches. I think some kids will start to grow later than others as well if you or your partner aren't very tall then you shouldn't expect her to be. I'm 5'10" and my husband is 6'. My daughter wears size 6 clothes and a size 11.5 shoe which is the same as a kindergarten or grade one kid. People think she is 5 or 6 so they expect more out of her till you tell them she is only 3.

Our 3 year old is GINORMOUS! LOL! He's just turned 3 in August, and he's already outgrowing 3T clothes, and he's wearing a size 9 shoe (but not for long). He's 37 inches tall and is 35lbs. Tallllll kiddo! Your daughter doesn't sound like she's abnormal at all! I have a niece who's about the same as your daughter & I just think every kid is different and has their spurts, so i wouldn't worry too much! :)

My daughter is about 37 1/2" and weighs 32 lbs. but she is actually considered small to everyone in my family because all of the other nieces, nephews, grandkids were bigger than her at that age.

My 3 year old will be 4 next month. She was 5lbs 1/2oz and 18in long when she was born. She was my peanut. She dropped to 4lbs 9oz the day we were discharged. She made the nicu cutoff by a couple oz! Today she is just a little over 30lbs and close to 40in tall. She's finally starting to outgrow her 2T's and bust into her 3T's. She's always been in the lowest percentile for weight for her age, but the pediatrician isn't worried. She's tiny, but tall. I'm hoping to enter her in gymnastics next year!

my daughter turns 3 this dec, she is around 13 kgs and is about 94 cm tall, she's pretty light for her weight, but her father was tall and slim. all kids are different so if she's not off the growth charts then don't stress.

My 3 year old is 38 lbs and 3'5". He's a big boy, but he's at a very healthy weight :). His dad is 6'1 and I'm 5'10, so both of our kids will be tall ones :). Oh, and he was born 10/7/08.

My daughter may be the biggest on here... She was born Nov. 15, 2007. At her last appointment she was 55 lbs and 45 inches (3 ft. 9 in). She was 9 lbs 3 oz and 20.5" at birth. She's been off the charts since she was born. Her dad and I are both tall. Doctor said she's proportionate for height and weight.
