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.
