We went to a theme park with friends today and their similarly aged DD (4 a few weeks ago) was 20cm taller than my DD shock

DD is nearly 4 and s half, and is 110 cm. She's huge.

My dd (4 last month) is about 102cm. Friends exactly the same age are a lot taller (one of them) or a lot smaller(another). That's what the centile charts are for - shows the variety!

At 4 dd was about 105cm.

She's almost 6 and 129cm. She's nearly as big as me!

Recently measured, he's almost 5, 110cm

CwtchMeQuick Sun 10-Apr-16 22:17:43

DS is 4 next month, I measured him this morning and he's 105cm. There's a lot of variation in his nursery class

Ds is approx 115cm. Mistaken often for 5/6year old. He's a young 4 (dob Jan) and gets a hard time with people expecting more from him. It makes me feel awful. And angry with other people

Do you still have the baby health book for your DD? There will be charts in it giving percentiles and you can see where your DD fits (and whether it is where she was when younger).

Alternately, does your DD wear age 3-4 / 4-5 clothes? In which case she is averagish. If 2-3 she is smaller, and if age 5-6 then taller.

DS is 4.4 and 110cm. His best friend is 116. In his class they range from 98-116 ish. DS is bang on 50% for his age (and weight!).

MrsBungle Sun 10-Apr-16 22:20:57

Ds is 108 cm and is 4 next month. He seems a bit bigger than most in his nursery class.

Dd1, she'll be 5 in September is 123cm. She too gets mistaken for a much older child.

My boy is 116cm and just turned 3. He is in size 6-7 clothes. Ridiculous.

LissaLoves Sun 10-Apr-16 22:22:52

Both of my DDs seem tiny then confused Four year old is 92cm and 8.5 year old is about 112cm. I'm 5'3" and DP is 6'1".

LissaLoves Sun 10-Apr-16 22:25:24

Teen she still fits in 2-3 clothes. I have her red book but it's in her room so don't want to risk waking her by getting it tonight and I can't find a chart online that my phone will download.

Artandco Sun 10-Apr-16 22:25:33

Ds at 110cm is only in age 4-5 years clothing though which is his age basically

CupcakesRule Sun 10-Apr-16 22:25:35

My just turned five year old is 124 and the tallest in his class. He's always been on the 97th percentile (or whatever the top one is!) but I'm 6ft and husband is 6ft 6.

Micromanageit Sun 10-Apr-16 22:26:06

My nephew is 3.2yrs and is 80cm

Paddypaws3 Sun 10-Apr-16 22:26:54

My DS is 3.5 and 108cm. He's huge!
Dd2 is 3.5 and around 95cm.
Dd1 is 9.1 and 137cm.

JockTamsonsBairns Sun 10-Apr-16 22:31:12

Blimey, Ds is smaller in comparison than I thought. At 4, he was 82cm and now, at nearly 9, is 118cm. I don't really understand it - I'm 5'5" and Dh is 5'11", so not sure why he's so tiny.

Twistedheartache Sun 10-Apr-16 22:32:04

My just turned 5 year old (2 weeks ago) is around 120cm & tallest in her class.
There is a real mix of sizes in her reception class & out of school she has friends a good 15+ cm shorter

Artandco Sun 10-Apr-16 22:32:10

Jock - ds2 was 60cm when he was born!

chocolatepudandchocolatesauce Sun 10-Apr-16 22:33:59

My little girl is 5 in June. She is 116cm tall. Thats around the 90th centile, so her projected adult height will be around 5'6" - 5'7". Which i dont feel is overly tall for a adult female.

Just remember kids grow at different rates!
Some will be huge and fully grown at 12, others will carry on slowly until 20.

GoodGirlGoneWrong Sun 10-Apr-16 22:40:31

Dc1 is 4 and is 118cm taller than most at preschool, clothes normally 6/7 as I struggle to find anything long enough (very leggy like me)

Flisspaps Sun 10-Apr-16 22:47:15

No idea, but DS turns 4 on Friday. He's already in age 5-6 clothes. DD is just 6 and wears age 7-8 clothes.

They're both taller than most of their friends.
