    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    How tall will your child be? Check out this kid's height predictor!

    Jennifer Shu, MD posted:
    Many different factors determine how tall a child will eventually be, including genetics, nutrition, environment and more. This calculator takes into account a child's parents' heights and, if available, the child's current age, height and weight. Another quick rule of thumb is to double the child's height at 2 years of age, but I have found that this method tends to over-predict a child's height. If you have concerns about your child's growth, be sure to contact your pediatrician.
