DS was always small for his age - both in height and weight, but lately...well...let's just say he's now really "solid." LOL! Do they normally have a huge growth spurt around this age? DS was wearing 2T tops and 24 month bottoms and now he could easily fit a 4T top and 3T bottom...when did this happen?? It's almost like we went to have DS2 and came home to a half-grown DS1. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
What size do most other 2.5/3 year olds wear? Is it normal to have one grow/gain so much so quickly? DS eats well for the most part - pretty typical toddler eating - sometimes picky, sometimes not. I think DS is about 37lbs and 36 inches tall - he doesn't look too heavy, but like I said, he's no longer a sting bean either.

My ds #2 who will be 2 1/2 in another month wears 2T tops and bottoms..... mostly 'cause that's what I have out for him. He can fit into 3T tops... actually most of his hoodies are 3T just to give him a little extra room. He's about 32lbs and I think around 30-31" tall. We mostly do the elastic waisted pants (sweats and track styles) I think if he was to wear the button and fly style I'ld probably put him in a 3T and just cuff the legs if I had too. He definately doesn't fit into anything 24m anymore.

I know you asked about DSs, but I thought I'd speak up anyway. My DD is 2 1/2. I weighed and measured her just yesterday, so I can say for sure that she's 31 pounds and 37 inches tall. She's a string beans for sure, the opposite of your DS! She wears mostly 3Ts, although the shirts are getting a little short on her. The 3 T pants are impossibly big in the waist; if she wasn't in cloth diapers still they'd never stay up. But the 2Ts are way too short. I don't know what I'm going to do when she potty learns; plain old undies are NEVER gonna hold her pants up.

My DS has been wearing sizes 4T-6X (depending on brand) since he was 2.5. He is now almost 5, and can still wear the same clothes, they just fit differently.

We just went through an incredible growth spurt here too. Must be the moon.<br><br>
DS is still a skinny winny, but he went from being about the same height as his buddies to shooting 2+ inches over them in a matter of a couple of weeks. Even another parent said, wow, last week the boys were the same size and NOW look!<br>
So we're 3t tops and almost 3T bottoms (depends on the brand)<br>
Where as a few weeks ago we were 2T tops and 2T bottoms, even some 18-24 month bottoms just about a month ago!<br>
We always have to buy adjustible waist pants because otherwise they literally fall right off his skinny butt.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

DS is 23 months old and he is 40 inches tall and about 38 lbs. he is wearing just growing out of 3t pants...I am pushing them to last until shorts weather comes. And anywhere from a 3t-5t shirt...3T shirts just fit, but if it is a dress type shirt it has to be 4t or he can't move his shoulders...oh and we are in a 9 1/2 WIDE shoe. I bought socks the other day that were in the BOYS section...*sigh* he can't even wear the clothes in that section...but all his toddler socks had the heel in the middle of his arch!!!

Alex is 2.5 and weighs about 38lbs and is about 38" tall. He's about ready to move into 4T. Most of his tops are already 4T. His almost 5 year old sister is only 42" tall and wears sz 5. He'll be passing her up soon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

J wears 4T tops and 3T bottoms and size 9-9.5 shoes. He's growing again, though, so I've been getting 5T tops and 4T bottoms lately (they're still big, but not THAT big). He's 2 yrs & 5 mos.

DS just turned 2 last week, and he's been wearing 2T clothes for a while now. In some brands I'm thinking I need to move up to 3T, but in others he seems to still have plenty of growing room in the 2T. He has to wear 4T or 5T hats though as his head is a little on the large side. He wears size 8 shoes. Everyone always comments on how tall he is, so I'm a little surprised that we have not had to size up more than we have.

my ds is closer to 2 3/4. he wears 3T and 4T everything. a couple of 2T shirts are lingering in his dresser and the sleeves are waaay too short. he was wearing jeans yesterday which looked too short so i thought they must be 2Ts. nope, 3Ts. so it will be time to ditch those soon. and he is size 10 and 11 in shoes.
