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

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!
