Height and Weight for a 21 months old boy

Blessing - posted on 07/04/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )




My Son he born weighing 5.4 pounds and 19 ½ inches tall, he was born two weeks early. He will be 21 months in two days and now weigh 22 pounds and 35 ½ inches tall; he is skinnier than other babies of his age. I am really worried, is his weight normal, or rather what is right weight and height for a boy of his age

my son is 21 months old and weighs 23 lbs and is 36 inches tall - don't be hung up on numbers. as long as your son is eathing healthy, energetic and all around doing fine then he's good! my son is on the skinny side too (only in the 12% for his age) but he's healthy, eats well and the dr isn't concerned. at his 6 month check up he was 19lbs so in just over a year he's only gained 4lbs.

As long as he's continuing to grow and thrive... don't worry about the numbers. Kids come in all shapes and sizes and are still normal. My son was bigger than that at 2 (he's 3 now... forget his size at 2), but his cousin that is 11 months older than him is about his same height.... and weighs a couple pounds less. They are both perfectly fine.
