Mine isn't quite 4.5 yet but he's 17kg
Thanks everyone for your responses
my dd weighs 14.5kg and is 92 cm tall she is on the little side compared to most of her peers at kindy but does have some medical issues that make her small.
Dd will be 5 end of June and weighs 15kg and last time I measured her height was 110cm a few months ago. She gets taller before she puts weight on. Doctor said she is healthy as long as she's eating and is active.
I think as long as your dd is healthy and active etc don't worry about it to much of she is tall I don't think her weight is excessive

My ds is 3 next week 110cm and 19-20 kHz, I imagine by the time he is 5 he will weigh at least 27kgs as long as she is eating right and drinking enough I'm sure she is fine, some kids have thicker bones the others eg my sister and I are both the same height, and slim but her normal weight is 62 and mine is 72, If I was 62 is look anorexic If she was 72 she would look chunky
Ds1 is 6.5 and weighs 30kgs and is 130cms tall.
Ds2 is 4.5 and weighs 20kgs and is 115cms tall.
Dd is 4.5 months and weighs 6.75 kgs and is 64 cms tall.
I am short and stocky or a solid build and Dp is tall and solid build....our kids don't stand a chance!
On the other hand my nephew is 7.5 and is 120cms tall and weighs 18kgs.
Everyone is different right?
DD will be 5 in August and weighs 17kgs
Sent from my LG-P920 using BubHub
DD3 will be 4 in May, she weighs 19 kilos and her height is 108cm. She is tall for her age, towers over most of her similar aged friends and is 5cm taller than her sisters were at the same age.
I do keep an eye on her weight, but she eats well and is very active. She is always hungry and always asking for something to eat.
As long your DD's height to weight ratio is ok I wouldn't worry and I just wouldn't tell people how much she weighs - it's none of their business.
OK, so I do agree with most posters, in that we're all different, in that it's absolutely no-one else's business what your daughter weighs, not even your Mother's, and I get it that some people just have a heavier musculature or build.
But you sound a bit concerned, which is great because everyone agrees that we have a problem with over weight and obesity in our kids, so it might be a good idea just to check. So I did, on the charts in the back of the blue book.
Here goes: 27kgs is the average weight (50th percentile) for a girl who is about 8 and a half.
So then I looked at the height chart for eight and a half year old girls, which shows that the height range for them runs from 120cms for the 3rd percentile up to 143cms for the ninety-sevenths percentile.
So, without telling me or anyone how tall your little girl is, if she falls within this range she is probably roughly in proportion. If she is precisely 131cms tall then she is perfectly in proportion (hardly anyone is, and who cares any way?).
My point is (I do have one): that just blithely reassuring you that all is well is not helpful, it pays to check. Just you, her loving parent and it's no-one else's damn business.
If you do decide that her weight is somewhat disproportionate, then I suggest you find a gp or dietician or paed whom you trust, and who has some expertise in the area to help you. From what I gather, putting a kid "on a diet" is not the idea, and can make things worse.
So. Not winning any popularity contests here, but I think that a quick check would be good, rather than asking us well meaning hubbers what we think.
My DD is 5 in July and weighs 32kg. I have had her checked by several doctors and none of them are concerned. She is super active- runs everywhere and is always moving, very rarely sits still, and eats healthy. Her weight has never ever slowed her down or been an issue health wise. She is very confident and secure with who she is- she knows she is bigger but to her (and those who love her) it makes no difference. If someone calls her fat, she confidently replies "no I am not, I am beautiful". And she is.
