How much does your 7.5-8 year old son weigh?

I am curious to hear the weights of other little boys this age. My son is 56 lbs (I am not sure of his height), but he seems very skinny to me. He goes to a DAN Dr. for developmental issues, but we don't do the normal well-checks so I am unsure about what percentile he is at.
Thanks!

Umm, that's how much my 10yo weighs. :lol My son is very small, but I don't think there should be any problem with a 7yo weighing 56 pounds.

My seven year old is both 45 inches and 45 lbs. He is going to be like his dad, be really little then shoot up several inches around 12.

My son just turned 8 y.o. and is 4 ft. 9 in. tall and weighs about 88 lbs. - he's over the 97th percentile for height and weight and has been since birth. Your son's weight sounds fine to me though - at his next check-up you can always ask the ped. what he/she thinks.


Answers:

My 7.5 yr old ds weighs about 55 pounds, is about 54 inches ( I think) and is also very skinny, yet muscular, this kid is developing a 6 pack :lol. He is at the 50th percentile at almost every well check visit since he was 2. He was in the 90th up until then. I think your ds sounds like he is in the normal range, and like Rennie said, you can ask at your next apt, or if it makes you feel better take him in now


Answers:

My DS is really tall, but I guess his weight is proportional. He'll be 8 in February and he's 57 inches and weighes 73 pounds. He's really muscular though, not skinny or fat really. He also wears size 8 mens shoes :bigeyes. I know he's going to be super tall (dad is 6ft7in and I'm 5ft9). Surprisingly he's not the tallest in his class. There are 2 girls that are actually taller that him.
