What have your GP and HV said?

What centiles is she on?

What was her birth weight?

Are you sure the measurements are right? That's only 2lb less than my 5 year old.

SanityClause Mon 15-Jun-15 20:39:11

Take her to your GP. That certainly does seem very large for such a young baby.

Interesting first post btw.

Yes that does sound heavy, my almost 6 year old is not much more.
What does her health visitor say

Earthbound Mon 15-Jun-15 20:41:49

Where was she weighed? At a clinic or on your home scales?

ElizabethG81 Mon 15-Jun-15 20:42:59

If this is real then I suspect your health visitor will have already mentioned something to you. You're saying that your baby weighs 33lb, which is on the 75% centile for a 3 year old.

My 2.7 year old weighs 2 stone 4 - and is on the 75th percentile.

Are you sure that's right??

You need to see a GP and now for a referral imo if it's correct.

My four year old doesn't weigh that much and she's amongst the tallest in her peer group.

Artandco Mon 15-Jun-15 20:44:58

Yes that is heavy. My 5 year old weighs 2 stone 9

Lozobham23 Mon 15-Jun-15 20:45:18

The last time I seen my hv was April due to refurbished centre she was 21 lbs then and she said that she was in portion with her height ,I weighed her myself yesterday out of curiosity ,and could not believe it I have 11 year old who is a normal size ,I'm not over feeding her like some people would think as she is just on finger foods most of that goes on the floor,she was 8lbs,at birth ,she was born at 37+6 also she was a I find baby,also my hv comes out this week xx

Magicalmrmistofeles Mon 15-Jun-15 20:45:57

My 4 year olds are only 28lb. You need her to be seen by a health professional. Have you been to a HV weigh in clinic?

Lozobham23 Mon 15-Jun-15 20:47:04

She was a ivf baby sorry if I confused

GirlInterupted Mon 15-Jun-15 20:47:11

Are you sure your scales are correct?

MrsBennetsEldest Mon 15-Jun-15 20:47:19

Next time you weigh her take her out of the buggy first.

TattieHowkerz Mon 15-Jun-15 20:47:40

Well that does sound very heavy. If you weren't seeing the HV this week anyway I'd suggest GP, but HV should be able to make arrangements to check out what's going on.

Smartiepants79 Mon 15-Jun-15 20:48:17

You need to have her weighed and checked properly. Household scales can be in accurate.
That is very large for her age. See your GP.

Lozobham23 Mon 15-Jun-15 20:48:36

I no it is very heavy I still have my 11 year old sons records and he was only 15lbs at 7 months��

Earthbound Mon 15-Jun-15 20:49:02

So She was 21 lbs 2 months ago when the HV weighed and was 33lbs yesterday when you weighed her at home? The most likely explanation is that your scales are inaccurate. Get her weighed again by the HV and see.

Blazing88 Mon 15-Jun-15 20:49:25

If she was only 21lbs two months ago, I would say it's impossible for her to weight what she does now - surely?? Although I'm surprised nothing was said then.

My other child, he's 14 months and weighs only 20lbs. He's on the 25th percentile mind, but still. 21lbs at 5months must have flagged as an issue?

Yamahaha Mon 15-Jun-15 20:49:49

That has to be wrong- my youngest weighed that at almost 5yo. Unless she's also 110cm?

Redglitter Mon 15-Jun-15 20:50:08

Sounds like your scales are. There's no way she can have gained 14 lbs since April

Stinkersmum Mon 15-Jun-15 20:50:25

MrsBennet grin the only appropriate response to the op so far!

hospitalworry Mon 15-Jun-15 20:51:26

Didn't you see her as larger than expected prior to weighing her?
Unless she is very very tall????
