My sweet Emma just turned 5 in February and is in the 95th % for height and 99th % for weigth. She has always been on the higher end for both/ She was actually born 5 wks early and weighed 6 lbs. She is actvie and is a pretty decent eater. Her doctors have never said anything about her weight. I guess as a mother Im just concerned for her health. She wears a 6x to a 7 but even the length fits her. She has a tummy but thats about it. She also has a lot of bowl issues, we just assumed thats why her tummy was hard and round. Should I be concerned or just let her grow into her body?View Thread
My ex is 6'3 and 270 built like a football player (solid). I see Emma taking after him and then our son who is almost 20 months is only in the 20th % , he is still in a 12 month clothing and swims in 18months. He is very small like me. I am 5'1 and 104.View Thread
