How much does your 4 year old weigh?

My DS is over 40" I'd say 41-42. He weighs 45lbs but has always been solid, not fat. Broad shoulders and all. The preschool sent home a letter saying he is in the obese range. Wtf? His doctor said he is average in both weight and height! He doesn't eat a ton of junk or anything really for that matter. I'm a little upset about it.

    DD will be three going on four in February. She is 47lbs and 41" tall. She has maintained her weight over the course of an entire year and has grown like a weed in that year.

    Get your doctor to sign something stating that he is within healthy range.

    My three yr old is 40 lbs, 42 inches. Yes he's big for his age but not fat, actuAlly he's quite thin.
    If your Dr says he's ok then don't listen to the school.
