What’s the normal Weight and Height for our children?
Many parents are concerned about the normal weight and height of their children, and compare them with the other children of the same age to make sure that they are growing normally.
There are some guidelines which you can refer to for making sure that your child falls within the average range of growth. Below are the values between the 25th to the 75th percentile for weight and height, which means that half of children’s weight and height falls within these ranges, only one quarter of children’s weight and height falls below these ranges, and the other quarter falls above them. However, the normal range of child growth falls within the 5th percentile to the 95th percentile.
When you take your child to a doctor for regular visits, they will weigh your child and measure their height to be able to tell you which percentile your child falls in. If you are worried about your child being under or overweight, always consult your doctor.
