I have a daughter who just turned 4 on March 1st.  We had a Dr's appt yesterday & her height was 42" & her weight was 34lbs.  I was a little concerned about her weight, although the Dr was not concerned at all.  Is this a normal weight for her height & age.
Thank you....

She is tall for her age and her weight is normal for her age. She appears thin due to being taller for her weight and age. As long as they have steadily increased in weight and height, over the years, even if the increases have been in small increments you should not be concerned.
