    Is your kid tall?

    I have just measured my 3.5 year old daughter and she is 1.09 metres tall

    according to the shop, that height is near the top of their 4-5 year old vest sizes (1.04 -1.10)

    she has always been bigger than the similar aged kids in Thailand but it appears she is also tall for the UK

    should I take her off her fresh veggies and fruits and buy her McDonalds and KFC?
    I have reported your post

    69cm at 6 months . but I don't know if he will be tall or not as of yet .
    at a guess 5'8 5'10 eventually but that's a wild guess.

    There is an operation they do in china to make girls taller.

    I think it is a surgical extension of the tibia and fibula.

    I would imagine they can make them shorter too.

    Maybe a birthday present if she is getting teased at kindy

    Parents love to talk about that shit.

    Univiserties do to.

    Being a short arsed cnvt of 5/7 and the wife a usual little Thai women I don,t hold out much hope for my kids being giants!
    My first child a girl to a mother of the same race has sprouted up a bit,but so as my last son who has the Thai mum.
    He has caught his brother up so much its unreal.
    No it just baby growth

    My great great grandfather was big man,but other than taking after that my kids will be short assed stocky Bastards.

    I watched a series on that ,, its pretty gruesome stuff , breaking the legs then putting bolts through the top and bottom half then a kinda frame with a corkscrew between the 2 bolts to keep turning it a bit to stretch it and grow the bone in-between

    chicken with hormones and antibiotics in it would make her grow more

    if you want to grow tall eat lots of chicken, eggs, yoghurt and milk

    My son was short until high school, then he grew until 22. Then later in life he shrunk a few inches. He's 81.

    Dr Andy, putting your daughter on a diet of Maccas & KFC, might not make differance to her hieght, but I am sure she will grow out to where when she is about 25, she should resemble a beach ball, keep her on thu good stuff.
    Keep her slim and attractive.
    Ozzie women eat sh-t and most are over weight, bloody fat.
    Am I correct when I say keeping your daughter on a good diet is the way to go and you are just baiting people ?

    Must be that superior gene pool, Andy!

    It all means nothing. When I was a kid many children of my year were far bigger than me. Now I tower over them.
    How Tall Will I Be?

    You might want to know how tall you will be. Will you be nose to nose with your mom or dad someday? There’s no way to know for sure how tall a kid will be as an adult, but it’s easy to get a clue: Look at your parents and the other adult members of your family. How tall are they? Chances are you’ll be around the same height as your parents. If one parent is tall and one short, then you’re likely to end up somewhere in between.

    My kid is tall for his age at only 19 months. I may start him smoking cigarettes to stunt his growth a bit if he keeps on out-growing all the bloody clothes we buy for him.

    how did you add yoghurt and milk to the chicken with hormones and antibiotics. I thought they come from cows?

    This says she will be 6' when she is 18

    Child Height Predictor | Tools | BabyCenter

    pity it is in American units, but 6' is around 183cm

    this one
    http://www.calculator.net/height-cal...convertcm=178#

    says 162cm

    so they are not much use!

    My daughter turned 3 on the 7th of this month and she's 99 cm. Often when were asked her age people say they thought she was 5 years old. My wife is about 5'5" and I'm 6' even so I think the little one will be on the talk side.

    Back in the 90s in Hong kong there was a report published in the SCP newspaper, identifying that farmed chicken was making HK Kids bigger.

    There could be a link in how big kids are becoming have a look at chemicals in food, i just read a bit and theres a lot of possible info there.
