Weight: 12 kg is an average weight for a 2 year old. Have your doctor follow his growth on his growth curve. If he is following his growth curve this can be reassuring. All the best.

50/50: This is about 50% percentile for height and 50% for weight, just fine. He is average and not at all underweight. Thanks for taking such an active role in his health!
