Re: Anyone else have a skinny LO?

DS is SUPER skinny and really tall. He is wearing 5t in the lenght but needs a 2t in the waist.

Everyone always thinks he is sick or something because he is so skinny.

DD is the exact opposite. She is shorter and chunkier than DS was. She is 5mo, 17lbs and wearing6-9-12 month already.

Re: Anyone else have a skinny LO?

Yup. My 4 oldest are supper skinny and Asterix is trimming up big time.
Alex is 9yo average height and 53lbs she wears the slimmest 8 slims I can find with the adjustable waist pulled tight. It’s a joke that once jeans look good on her they’re too short.
Ender is 7yo, tall, 48lbs and wears 7 slims with the waist tightened they still hang on him. Good thing that’s the style!
Aeryn is 29lbs and Ashe is 30lbd they’re average to tall, 3yo, wear 3 slims with the waist pulled tight. They’re pants hang and sag! LOL PT made it so much worse!! 18mn fits great everywhere but length!! Gymboree 3T Leggings fit great but they trash them when playing.

We get comments about them being thin/skinny. I don’t care as long as they’re healthy and eating well. I’d rather them be thin that over weight. People are just jealous cause my kids are so adorable and have model figures!! :P LOL

My 4yo DS is the same way. He can still wear his 18mos size swim trunks with no problem. When he was still in diapers it was nice because they held his pants up. He's on the tall side though, he won't let me store his 2T superhero pjs but when he wears them the pants are capris on him.

Yup, skinny kids here My first born was always in the 95% for height, and 25% or so for weight. Now, my second boy is 50% for height, and about 3% for weight. I just grow then long and lean, I am learning to get over my concern, I just wish people would stop commenting on my tiny toddler

Re: Anyone else have a skinny LO?

My DS is pretty skinny. He's at >98% for height and only 30% for weight. So you can tell he's like a stick. The funny thing is he eats EVERYTHING! He will open his mouth for foods all day long! He's only 16 months old and still can fit in 9-month pants. But normally he's wearing 12 months stuff (which I think it's not too bad :-)

Re: Anyone else have a skinny LO?

We've got a skinny one here. I'm kind of chunky, as are my oldest and youngest daughters. But my middle one (3 y/o) - she's skinny. My 21 month old will (or already does) outweigh her soon. She can wear my toddler's clothes, the only problem is that pants & dresses or skirts are sometimes too short for her.

Yeah, we're still in 6-9 M. She was 19 pounds, 11 ounces at 1 year, 2 weeks (today).

She's been 75% for height, but hangs around 20%-25% for weight.

Re: Anyone else have a skinny LO?

my girls are both BIG...my oldest is gonna b 8 in 2wks, she's around 75% height and off the chart in weight
my 2nd dd is off the chart in height AND weight
and my ds, who will be 4 on monday, is a skinny little 33lber where hes about 20th% in both height and weight.
i took my kids and my nephew (who is almost 8 also, and is the same height as my 5.5yo and is only about 45-50lbs) to walmart one day, and i could just imagine the thoughts in peoples minds 'she starves her boys!' cause both boys are skinny and both girls are big

i got nik a pair of 9mt carters jean shorts and they're still too big in the waist! but he's got some hips so his hip bones hold em up
