How much should my child weigh?

Updated on February 8, 2013

Is my child overweight or underweight?

It's a common question asked by parents, and understandably so - our children are our most precious asset, and as such we want them to be at an optimum level of health.

Compiled below are 2 charts detailing the average weight of a child at various stages in life, separated by gender. The table shows various measurements (so if you're not used to one, look at the other - it saves you going through Google trying to find a converter!

Please note, that these weights are generic averages/expectations only. Please note that every child is different. If your child is not a similar weight it doesn't necessarily mean they are unhealthy - a child's optimum weight varies greatly depending on their birth-weight, height etc. These charts should not be used as medical advice. They are purely for informative purposes.

      The charts are useful, but the fact is, just like you said: "Please note that every child is different".
