My daughter is 13 and 3 monthes old. She weighes about 147.4 pounds. Her height is 5ft. 4inches. Is she overweight, obese, or just a late bloomer?
She is at the 75th percentile for height and between the 90th and 95th percentile for weight. As far as being a late bloomer, that is difficult to address without having more data on her previous growth and pubertal development.
