my daughter is 3 and weighs 24 pounds, and is 36 inches tall, she is fine, it really depends on the genes, she is my third child and my oldest was the same way very tiny and petite, as long as she is eating and growing she will be fine.

My son just turned 3 and he is 28lbs. My daughter, who is 19 months, weighs 22lbs. Both are in the 20-30% for weight so I do not think 20lbs is right. Long as he's healthy I wouldn't worry.

wow thats pretty conflicted feedback! yeah i guess most of it also depends on genes/height. you cant help but be worried about obesity though! shes 32lb at the moment at 3ft 5 inches tall, 3 weeks from turning three. that seems to be pretty normal by the sounds! i just saw 20lbs and panicked a bit as obviously she would be high above average! thanks for the reassurance though! x

maybe that weight is based on her height?? sounds a bit low i think. my son will be 3 in a couple of months and he is about 35lbs. his doctor told me he was perfect. my niece is 19months and she is 20lbs. her doctor told my sister-in-law that she needs to gain weight.

no that definately isn't right. 20lbs is closer to a 1 year old. My son who just turned 3 in Feb. is 34lbs. He is all around pretty average looking. I think he is a little tall for his age, but not very much. I would say 30lbs is closer to average, but a lot of it depends on height and frame of the child.

Ever child is different. I would guess that 20lbs. is a bite small for a 3 year old but then again I'm sure it's depended upon genes as well. Our son is 2.5 and weights 26lbs. and 4oz. He's small and always has been but so are my husband and I. It really varies from child to child.

My daughter is 3 and is3' 8" and is 50lbs, she was always a big baby. We have to buy size 7/8 clothes for her just so her shirts are long enough. As the doctor told me she is healthy and sturdy lol.
