I just found this site while looking for height/weight charts for kids. I found one at, and it said my 46.5 inch tall daughter, who weighs 60 lbs is underweight. I can tell by the rolls on her belly that isnt true. This site says she is overweight-over 95% for her age and sex, but should she be compared to her age group when she is as tall as a 6 year old? Let me know if I have this right! Also, any advice would be appreciated.. I intend to nip this in the bud before the problem gets out of hand.. I, too, was a heavy child and still struggle as an adult. I am glad I found you!

That's just left-over baby fat, it won't last long, no need to worry

Dont woru. Rolls dont always mean fat. its called a "lazy belly' wich means the muscles need to be streanthed. this happens just b 4 a growth spurt. take her out walking and make sure she get enofe protin. dont wory. she will be fine
