My Son is 3 yrs and 6 months and 28 lb in weight. That keeps him in 8
th percentile of weight . Is not is a bit low ? I would like to see how
does your kid doing.

Use following link for calculating percentile for 3 to 12 year old

My son spent many years in the 5% or below. He is 9 years old now,75% for height and weight! My 7 year old daughter weighs 32lbs, we are  still waiting for her to catch up!As long as the child is healthy, and does not go down in the scale, relax.

I understand what its like to have an underweight son, my son is too! I think as long as he eats well and enough food in a day there is not need to worry!

Hey

 

My daughter was 5th percentile for height and weight for most of her life, she is now 15 and she is healthy and happy--no worries, as long as your child is growing and thriving don't get hung up on the numbers
