Hi,

my toddler is turning 3 next month and has just started a growth spurt. His last measurements at the peadiatrician were done 2 months ago.
He was 114cm tall and 19.5kg heavy. The peadiatrician isn't worried as he seems to be in proportion.
The only odd thing about DS is that he's in size 6 shirts and tops and size 2-3 pants and bottoms. Not so much in proportion that way.

How much does your 3yo weigh and measure? I am looking for answers from people who have children no older than 3 years and 4 months to make it better to compare original.gif

Your boys sounds very tall! Is he still tracking "his" curve?
When my son turned 3 he was 14kg and 95.5cm. Just below average for both. He was in size 0 and 1 for pants, and 1 and 2 for tshirts. He's almost four (next month) and is still just below average - 15.5kg and 102cm. He's still fits size 0 and 1 for pants, although needs 2s for length, and 1 or 2 for tops, depending on sizing, although usually needs 2s for length as well.

Just had a look at his blue book and it seems like he follows his curve. His weight has actually leveled out a bit (actually dropped as at one stage he was nearly 22kg), just his height keeps going up.....

You could look at the WHO height charts etc

http://www.who.int/childgrowth/standards/c..._boys_p_2_5.pdf

My 3.2 year old is in size 2 pants and tops. He's still got some 1s that fit though. He's 95ish cm and 14 kilos (at a guess).

My just turned 5 year old is about 107cm and 16-17 kilos. Wears size 4 tops for length in arms. Has size 3 jeans that still just fit. He's small, but not tiny.

DD3 is 3 and 5 mths and as of yesterday, is 102cm and 17.5kg. She is in the 97th percentile.

However, I grow them big, both her sisters are off the charts and my 6 year old is only 4 cm shorter then my very tall 8 year old. They both wear size 10-12 clothes.

DS1 was 102cm and 18.5kg 2 months before his 3rd birthday.  At 7, he is now the tallest boy in his class.  He always wore smaller bottoms than tops, and went to school wearing DS2's size 3 shorts last week.

DS2 was much smaller, but I didn't record it (he weighs 19-ish kg now and will be 5 in 3 weeks)

DD turned 3 in July and today is wearing a pair of size 1 shorts.

Are you sure that that's how tall he is? Check your records again and measure yourself if need be.

That is extremely tall for a just turned 3 year old, my 3 year old is very average, at just turned 3 was about 92cm tall. I don't think he's even hit a metre yet at 3 yrs 8 months.

My daughter was 114cm and 17kg at nearly 6, i only know this because i found her old schoolwork yesterday from prep and she's dead on average within her year level for height and weight.

Yes he really is that tall. DS nearly reaches my belly button and I have long legs :\

I'm not short though and neither is his father. I am 183cm and his father is 180cm and naturally toned. (DS has a lot of muscles hence the weight).

That is the same height and similar weight as my 5yr old.

My 3 y.o is about 13 kg and 95 cm.

DS was 100cm and 16kg at 3.

OP, your child is bigger/heavier than the average 3 year old, but so long as he has always tracked 'off the charts' then that could be the reason why your paed isnt worried. His weight for stature is actually on the 40th percentile, which is healthy and fine and quite normal. Are you posting because you are concerned or just wanting to compare?  original.gif

My son is almost 3.5 and is 105 cm and sometimes wears size 5 shirts but that doesnt mean much to me.

I have a short/average height but fat one! 3 tomorrow and about 17 kilos and 95cm tall. His weight has been mentioned - last year he was 15.5 kilos so he's only put on 1.5 kilos this year while growing in height and he has been 50% for height all along and always 97thish for weight - was 10kg at 6 month just on breastmilk then about 13 kilos by 1. So I'm not sure how worried to be yet since he's always been on the same curves and I know the family history is to lean out as the years roll by. They've just told me to keep an eye on him so far.

As my pead isn't concerned, neither am I. I did have the CHN tell me that he ought to loose some weight as he is "on his way" to becoming obese and started to say stuff like "He's going to be bullied and picked on and it will affect his personality as he grows up".
When I told the pead he just rolled his eyes. He believes DS is so tall because of the Dutch genes (my genes) he's got and his heaviness would be because of the muscle.

I posted here because I am wondering if he is the only one this big/heavy at this age and to see if he really is all that unusual as I have been told that kids are getting taller these days.
However, I am a bit worried that he will be picked on for his height at school, not so much for his weight though.

Also, I believe the WHO growth charts are based on US statistics and not Australian statistics. Can anyone confirm this?

DD2 has just turned 3 and she is about 98cm tall and weights about 16kgs. We thought she was big for her age as she seems much bigger than others her age.

I havent checked the charts ever
