My son seems to be bigger than everyone else at nursery. Ive just measured him, he is 3 foot 6 (1.6 metres)

Is he a giant child or the other at nursery just small?

Really 1.6m, that is taller than me - and the height of an average 14 year old! did you mean 1.06?

Ok. Maybe it was 1.06. Cant read a tape measure it would seem!

Ds is 3.5yo too and he was measured by a machine thingy at the science museum. He was 1.05. But he is taller than his friends. smile

More worryingly I had measured him repeatedly 2 weeks before that and he was 1.04cm. He appears to be having another growth spurt. hmm

Ha ha - 1.6 is taller than me grin

DD is less than 90cm. Definitely less than 1m which really annoys her as she can't go on the ride she likes the look of at the theme park.

DS was:

90cm at 2
100cm at 3
110cm at 4
117cm at 5
121cm at 6

He is pretty tall for his age. 3 ft 6 inches is 105 cm - about where DS would have been at this age. 160 cm would be record breaking!

Growth in young children is not linear by any stretch of the imagination. DS measured 118 cm at 5.10 and then 121 cm at 5.11 - in other words he grew his entire year's worth in a month! We know this for a fact as we took him to Chessington twice during the summer holidays and wanted to know whether he would reach the magic 1.2m mark. On the first visit he most definitely didn't and on the second he most definitely did.

Dd 3.6 measured last week 97cm. Bang on average I think. She has a friend the same age who's noticeably taller. I did laugh at your typo! 1.6m is almost what I am! I'd say 1.06 is taller than average but certainly not huge.

My almost 5yo is 1.04. My 2.7yo is 88cm. I must breed short ones, although ds looks normal sized againts his schoolmates.

My 3.5 yo dd is 1.04m.

Last measured DS at 3.2 and he was 105cm.

Dd is 3.2 just measured her and she's 100cm

My 2.2 DS is 100. He looks like a bit of a freak in his toddler class that only goes up to 2.6yos. grin

Just measured DD (3.6) for the first time and she's 1.02.
