whats the maximum weight that can be placed in the back pack of a three year old toddler? thank you

Dr. A. Clark :

I'm happy that you have asked me to assist you and here is the limit chart based on a child starting at 60 pounds so I would not recommend much in a toddler's backpack:

ist you with your child and hope that you can benefit from my many years of helping parents like you.

Dr. A. Clark :

Sorry, I pasted this and it dropped in the middle of what I typed!

Dr. A. Clark :

I would not allow more than about 10% of the child's weight, so for a typical 3 year old 3-4 pounds.

Dr. A. Clark :

Are you able to chat and did you see the chart OK?

Dr. A. Clark :

Chat will time us out and kick us off if we are not posting something within 4 minutes.

Dr. A. Clark :

Perhaps you've stepped away from your computer so I'll exit but stand by if you have questions.

Dr. A. Clark :




Please let me know if you have any further questions and if not I hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to rate my advice when you exit chat. Please feel free to ask for me by name the next time you have a question about your children.
