    Default When did your toddler thin out?

    My DD is 2.5 and still the chubbiest in our mummies group. All of her friends have turned into petite or thin little things but she is still chunky with a pot belly. My husbands family is over overweight so wondering if this is just her build type? Just wondering when your little one thinned out if they did at all. Thanks

    My little heffalump aka dd2 lost her chubb around 2.5-3yo. She has had no weight gain this past year but instead shot up in height. Now she is 3y3mth old 91cm tall and 19kg.

    My DD is now 5 and still hasn't thinned out really. She does for a while when she has a growth spurt, but her weight always seems to catch up. I think it's just her body shape.

    DD1 & DD3 never had any chub on them but DD2 & DD4 were born tiny and turned chubby. DD2 lost her weight around 2-3, she's now a skinny, lanky 6 year old. DD4 is 3.5 and only just now starting to lose her chubby legs and belly but looks like she'll always have a solid build.

    My 3 year old was the chubbiest baby, and is now quite lanky. From about 10 months - 2 years she put on next to no weight, but got a lot taller.
    They're all so different though

    DD was a chubby michelin baby. Her weight gain has slowed right down now & she goes through periods of getting a little chubby then has a growth spurt. She is never going to be skinny (will have a tall athletic/solid build - genetics). At almost 4yrs she is about 19kgs & 104cms tall.

    My DD is 4 next week and 30kg. No sign of evening out. She's very tall too. She just doesn't stop growing. I'm overweight, as is pretty much every person related to me, and I suspect her genes suck. DD2 I noticed thin out at 18months.

    DD was born reasonably small 2.95kg, chubbed up in her first year and has been losing it ever since. She was 13.5kg at her 2yo check up and has just lost a lot of weight due to being ill, she is now around 12kg and doesn't seem to be putting in back on in a hurry. She is 2 years 3 months.

    My DS1 was so chubby, 12kg by 12 months. He has only really thinned out in the last year, he is 6! I think he's about 26kg now and avg height.
    DD was really chubby until she was about 3, she just turned 4 and is 16kg and looks quite normal now.
    DS2 at 3 months was heavier than DS1 was so I though he was going to be even bigger, but he is 11 months old and already starting to loose some of his chub.
    My GP gave me some great advice when I was worried about DS1 when he was about 3 or 4 and still super chubby, she said as long as you're not feeding him sugary treats all the time, and healthy unprocessed food, let him eat as much as he wants and it should sort itself out.
