Common Questions and Answers about Height weight chart growth charts


10947 tn?1281404252 re pleased to announce two new applications for your Baby Pages - the Height Percentile Chart and the Weight Percentile Chart. Both charts are available from your Baby Page. Just click the Settings button in the upper right (it looks like gears) and add the two applications. Both apps use the data in your Baby Tracker, so if you already have data entered, your chart will automatically display it.
Avatar f tn There are height and weight ranges for children which is indicated on Growth Charts. His height is normal, however, his weight is below the Growth chart for his age. You stated he is teething which some children do not feel well from it. Their appetite can decrease. Suggest you feed him small meals 5-6 times a day to help increase his weight and maybe it will decrease his ‘stomach aches’, as you stated.
676912 tn?1332812551 s always been a monster, he was never below 90% for height and always above 50% for weight, mostly above 95% and 75% for height/weight. Aubryana is right now the same size Elijah was at 4 months and she's almost 9 months. Do I just have a little baby girl, or is she gonna start growing more as she gets older? I'm so used to Mr Giant.
Avatar f tn Our daughter's height has been slowly dropping on her growth chart. Over the period of 2 years, she has gone from 95% down to 10%. The progression has been this: Birth: 95% 3 months: 50% 6 months: 45% 12 months: 25% 20 months: 15% 2 years: 10% She had serious health issues when born (two heart defects, heart failure, failure to thrive with weight) but these have all been resolved for over a year.
Avatar f tn When a child's weight and height are within the growth charts, they are consisted normal. Your daughter's weight is at the 90th percentile (near the top of the growth chart) with a lower height so the BMI may indicate an overweight child when she really is not. You should be concerned if her weight goes above the 95th percentile (‘off the growth chart’). Right now she is fine as long as she is growing at a steady rate.
Avatar n tn She is still a child and growth charts should be used to determine her growth patterns. If she has not grown or gained weight for a certain length of time, that is important regardless if she is within the growth chart. If you are concerned about the issues you described, suggest having blood work done. All the best to you.
Avatar n tn Boys reach their peak height velocity, or the height of their growth spurt, at 13.5 years, while girls reach it at 11.5. Growth spurts can last two to three years, with the average girl growing 3.5 inches per year and the average boy growing 4.5 inches during that time.
280369 tn?1316702041 I thing the growth chart is different for boys, i have a book somewhere around here that has the weight and growth chart on it, the same one they use in dr office to keep record, i will look for it and post it 2mrw nite if you havent found the answer by then, or try googling growth charts and compare it from girls and boys.
234415 tn?1203478159 They might have measured her wrong at a previous appointment. That is very common. In Brody's charts you can see a big mistake with his growth where his length went down! It was just a simple, human error. Also, some babies do stick their tongues out. My nephew does this and he is healthy and fine. Try not to jump to conclusions. Worrying will not change the outcome. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn growth charts are available at nih website http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/ these are grouped into boys and girls and up to age 2 and beyond age 2, hope this helps.
1194973 tn?1385503904 When it comes to percentiles, is it bad for a child to be in the lower end? Kylie is showing to be in the 5th percentile and lower for height, weight and head circumference. I'm really nervous about if she is growing properly or not. At birth she was in the 50-75th for height and 25th for weight. Should it drop like that? The doctor didn't seem worried, but I'm not sure. She is 8 pounds 4 ounces and was 6 pounds 12 ounces at birth. She's still 20 inches long.
Avatar n tn I think the medical community had to adjust the growth charts because women were having larger babies however i have run into more and more people with little girls like mine.
Avatar n tn Hi there. He is well below the 3rd % for weight and height on the growth charts. Generally, though, because he is small for weight AND height, it's likely that his BMI (body mass index) is within normal limits. Doctors tend to look to bmi rather than one measurement of either growth or height. If he was a tall kid with low weight, they'd look a little closer. Some kids are just small, and he started out small.
Avatar f tn Hi Doctor, I would like to know my son's 4+ yrs now. He weighs 14.5 kg .And height of 97cm . Many people saying that he's quite small size at his age. Pls advise me what kind of food whereby could boost his height growth as well as weight .He's a very very small eater too. Nothing seems to interest him more then 3 mouthful of scoop and he's full. Pls advise . Appreciated.
Avatar n tn Her weight is still on the growth chart which is good. If her height was based on adult measurements she would need to gain that much weight, however, she is still a child and should be having her weight and height charted on the growth charts. She does needs to gain some weight. She is entering puberty and will be gaining weight as she becomes a 'woman'.
Avatar f tn So our daughter's height has been slowly dropping on her growth chart. Over the period of 2 years, she has gone from 95% down to 10%. The progression has been this: Birth: 95% 3 months: 50% 6 months: 45% 12 months: 25% 20 months: 15% 2 years: 10% Is this normal? She had serious health issues when born (two heart defects, heart failure, failure to thrive with weight, but these have all been resolved for over a year.
Avatar f tn hello Doctor, I recently checked out my son's weight and height. he is 9.8 kgs and 72cms height. is his height and weight normal for his age. he is exactly 1 year 4 months completed.
Avatar f tn The tramactic event dealt with a change in custody. My son's father lied and misrespresented information in court, judge reversed custody and my child was not able to see me or my family that he had relationships since birth. My child was 3 1/2 years old when this occured. Since then he has not had significant weight gain and as of last year diagnosed with Constitutional growth delay.
Avatar f tn I just wanted to add that, like just4me1, my children were average at birth and gradually sank to the bottom 10th percentile in height and weight as they aged. I ragged the pediatrician for years to figure out what was wrong but nothing showed up. An endocrinologist finally discovered the gluten allergy. We're now a gluten-free household. Both children took growth hormone and are now average height, but insurance wouldn't pay for it for my daughter and it cost a fortune.
2095187 tn?1333091434 Your weight is actually low for your age and if you want to grow taller, please do not go on a diet to lose weight. The average weight for your age and height is 115 pounds. If you think you look fat, then I would exercise as it is a way to tone muscles instead of dieting to lose weight. I don't think you are fat. The pictures in magazine are air brushed digitally on the computer to make girls look thinner than they are in real life. http://www.chartsgraphsdiagrams.
Avatar f tn Just took a quick look at height/weight chart - you are NOT overweight - even if you have a small frame. If you can maintain where you are, that would be ok. Don't lose too much or you will be unhealthy. There are some websites you can go to that will give you the number of calories you need daily. spark people is a good one; live strong is another. You can also do a search for height/weight charts to get an idea of where your weight should fall. Good luck and keep posting.
Avatar n tn You would need to provide more information, why don't you have the child's pediatrician recommend a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist in the area? I wouldn't tell a child who is in the 30% to stop eating, instead provide him with nutrient dense foods. He still should be getting whole milk dairy, cheese, yogurt until 24 months when he should change to low fat versions. What exactly is he eating? What does he drink? How big are the parents? Was he breastfed or formula?
1938479 tn?1325705620 If Arnold Schwarzenegger was to use a BMI (weight vs height) chart while bodybuilding, it would have classified him as obese. Another way to look at fat versus muscles is that a cubic inch of muscle will weigh more than a cubic inch of fat. Muscle is about 18 percent more dense than fat. So a better question is am I in shape or do i need to convert more areas of fat to muscle? With that said, here is a weight chart that should only be used to give you an idea, so don't take it as gospel.
676912 tn?1332812551 Just out of curiosity...this is a babies/kids thread. I know there's growth charts, and weight charts but how old is/are your child(ren) and what's their height and weight? Just curious of the ranges of children by age...actually I really just want to know if Elijah towers over anyone else's kid, lol...he's so much taller than all the babies in our play group...
