what does your 10 year old weigh?

My DD is beautifully in proportion but she is in age 13 clothes!

She isn't over weight but has started to fill out around her hips and bottom.

I really think the clothes sizes are way out!

I weighed her today and she is just under 7 stones.

ds is a little under 5 stone. He's small though so not the height of a 10 year old.

dd is just 11 and is in size 14-15 or womens size 6/8's - she is also just under 7 stone.

They are totally out clothes sizes.

If it's any consolation my (just) six-year-old dd is in size 9-10 yr old trousers/shorts. She's not overweight (4st)but appears to have inherited my child-bearing hips...

Its not just me then. Kids clothes just don't seem to allow for the fact that girls start filling out on the hips, bottom and bust. DD is nearly 5 ft so tall for her age too.

My 9 year old DS weighs 4st 8 and is in age 9 clothes. He is average height for his age and very lean, all his trousers need to be adjusted around the waist!
Saying that his 9 year old cousin is a few inches taller then him and probably about a stone heavier.
I think thats usually the way it is with girls, they seem to get bigger then boys at that age.
How tall is she?

Sorry x post. That is quite tall for her age.

Just been looking online and she is way above average height for a 10 year old so guess that will have something to do with it

LaurieFairyCake Mon 10-Aug-09 17:55:28

yep, dd is 5 ft tall too.

Don't think it's that tall to be honest. I am 5 feet tall and I never grew past aged 11 grin

I honestly wouldn't weigh a 10 yr-old.

ds2 (10) is very skinny and constantly on the go. He's very conscious of his body image (for a boy) and I don't think weighing him is a good idea.

ds1 (12) is pretty chubby and has quite a belly on him now. He's aware of his physique, but not motivated to do much about it, but I still don't think it's necessary to weigh him.

The Wii fit weighs them. And they are also weighed in year 6.

I've not weighed dd but I know how much she weighs because of the above.

unknownrebelbang Mon 10-Aug-09 18:00:37

I wouldn't weigh them either.

DS2 is 12 and skinny (and covered in blardy bruises at the moment);

DS3 is 10 (11 tomorrow) and solid. He's broader, heavier and just inching in front of his brother height-wise, although he's got a longer torso and shorter legs.

They often share clothes (and it depends on the cut as to the size they were - anything from age 9 - 13).

They're both fit and healthy, just a different build to each other, so I don't see the need to weigh them.

DD is 11 6.5 stone and 5'1, she is a child's 13/14 or an adults 6/8. She is one of the tallest in the class (both the yr6 she has just left and the yr 7 she is going into) so I don't think clothes sizes are out, just not all children are average.

My 10 yr old ds weighs 4 stone 4 pound and is 4 ft 3 inches.
