I have a two year old boy who at his recent clinic check up and immunization weighed 12kgs and measured 95cm. The nurse was concerned of his low weight for his height but I think he is in proprotion and healthy. What is your opinion?

Your son's weight is exactly on the average for his age so there is no need for concern. He is exceptionally tall for his age.
