Wow, your friends daughter sounds itty bitty to me. This thread is definitely showing me how wide the normal range is when kids are so young. I bet your baby has the most pinchable cheeks :) If I'm remembering correctly I think my daughter went through the 20-28 pound range in her second year too.

See that's what I'm thinking for my daughter too. She's an insanely strong kid, never sits still for a second, constantly playing ball and riding her tricycle. I mean they always account for muscle density when determining if an adult is overweight, seems like they should account for it with heavy but trim kids like ours too. Either way, screw "normal"! I'd rather she be happy and healthy and active than fit into a specific range on a growth chart.

My son is 3 in 2 weeks. He weighs 49lbs, is 43" tall, and wears 5-6 clothes. His doctor has never said anything about his weight. He's a solid kid, not overly chubby.

That sounds to me like a kid who is in proportion for his height. If my daughter is in the 85th percentile for height, of course she's going to be heavier than a 50th percentile child. My daughters doctor had never mentioned anything negative about her weight at all either, although it was a new resident today who expressed the concern. Your son must get mistaken for an older kid all the time, mine is about 39" tall and people are shocked that she's barely three. Happy early birthday to your little man :) High five from another member of the three year old winter babies living in Ontario club!

Uh oh, I hope not deliberately to keep her from gaining weight. They grow so quickly at this age they really need tons of nutrition to keep them going. Does she just not have much of an appetite? I'm definitely one of those people that needs to remind myself to eat. I'm 31 weeks pregnant and I've managed to gain 20 pounds by drinking boost and ensure with meals to pack in the calories, so it definitely is possible to just be small and not a big eater. But for a toddler I usually feel it's best to just go with intuitive eating, give them a healthy choice when theyre hungry and not force them when they aren't so hungry. Growing and playing takes up a lot of energy after all.
