Does your child weight 55lbs or 65lbs?

I'm trying to find out about what age a child is at 55lbs and about what age a child is at 65lbs. If you have a child that weighs either of these weights can you let me know what age they are and which weight. Thanks!

I was 42lbs in 2nd and 3rd grades, and was smaller than average, so I'd say 55 is typical for the end of 3rd grade.

Re: Does your child weight 55lbs or 65lbs?

It really varies a lot. My DD is 8 now and 70 lbs, but she was 65 between 7-7.5 yrs. She is tall and thin and about to finish second grade. My oldest reached those weights at even younger ages, he's just a big boy. All of my kids are tall, thin and kind of muscular built.

I just looked at some of my older 2's check-up slips and my DD was 53 and my DS1 was 55 at their 5 yr check-ups. HTH

ds weighs 65 lbs and he's 7. (NO, he's not fat, he's a bean pole, he's about the size of the average 3-4th grader)

Well, my dd is 60lbs and 6 years old (just finishing kindergarten). I know that's not the exact weight you asked for, but it's inbetween!

My DD will be 8 in July and is 63 lbs. She's 4'5" - very tall and skinny.

I think 55 lbs is about a 2nd grader, if you were to do an average. My 7 1/2 yr old might weigh 55 lbs now, but she's quite thin --- she can still wear a 6 slim around her waist.

My oldest DS is super skinny. His jeans fall off his hips. He's 65lbs and 12! He eats and eats but nothing sticks! Oh how I wish I had that problem. On the other hand, DS2 is 8 and about 95lbs. He's a little chunky but mostly just tall and beefy, kwim?
