I have quite the opposite problem, my 3 year old is very big (his clothes are usually size 5 or 6) but has a mental age of about 2 so people, including my own dad who sees him everyday, have unrealistic expectations of him.

My 18 month old son is very tiny he is still in size 0 and some things still 00 but we all call him our big boy even though everyone always says how small he is. We also have a 3 year old but he has always been tall for his age.
don't worry bout what everyone says just as long as his healthy and eating right then his fine my 18mth old is only 9.5kg my 4mth old is 5kg. everyone tells me why is she so small i tell them thats the way she is. no matter how much more or less they eat if there gona be small there gona be small. when they get older they'll change

You are lucky, I am on the opposite end, I am always getting told my 2 3/4 year old son is big for his age. Everyone thinks he is about 3 maybe 4. At birth he weighed in at 11lb 3 oz, and now weights a healthy 20kgs or so. He is size 10/11 for shoes and his clothes are size 4 maybe 5, depending on make. I wouldn't worry about the comments, just ignore them, that is all I have done. Am expecting another one in June 04 and expecting another big one, and I don't care. My son is happy and healhty and eating well, why should I worry about what other people say.
