How tall is your 9yr old dd?

My dd is 9 (10 in February) and she's currently 159cm high, size 5 feet and weighs about 6.5/7 stone (I think that's what she said!). I'm having to buy her clothes aged for about 13/14yrs or even occasionally buying her size 6/8 in womens clothes.

I feel a bit hard done by that she's grown out of children's clothes so quickly. She's a real tomboy with a real little woman's figure. It's hard to find her age appropriate clothes in a style she likes that fits her!

She's the tallest in her class, but out of interest is she freakishly big? How tall are your dd's?

My 10yo is 4ft and weighs about 4.5 stone. My 14yo is 5.3ft and weighs 7 stone. Some children are just tall!

My DD is 10 (11 in March), 140cm and 25kg, she is almost the shortest in her class though, and I'm pretty short myself (153cm/5ft) so she's never going to be a giantess!
Several of her classmates are taller than me, and have been for a year or so now, people come in all sorts of sizes so I wouldn't worry.
Where is she on the "red book" centile chart?

My dd is 9 (10 in Jan) 5.5 but ridiculously slim. I'm buying her 12+ clothes or some women's small for her bottom half. Some kids grow quickly to what they are going to be then the others catch up, I was one of those. It's at this age that kids start growing at different rates again as hormones will start being a factor

My dd is 9 and a quarter. Weighs 4.5 stone. And is 135cm tall. Age 9 clothes are a bit big. Size 13 feet. Her friend is a head taller (so probably similar to your dd) and wears size 2 shoes. I think it's very variable this age - some have started growing and others haven't.

I've got a biggie too. About 4'10" (sorry, I only think in old money), wearing age 13 clothes. Haven't weighed her but I wouldn't be remotely surprised if she was a similar weight to your daughter.

Small feet though.

My just turned 6 year old is taller than some of your 9 year olds. I've a giantess on my hands ��

Haven't measured my daughter but I'm 5ft 7 and she's up to my shoulders 9 in February, 7.5 stone,age 14 clothes size 10 women's leggings but little size 13 feet

And my 5yo is the same height as some of the kids in my 9yo's class. Anyone would think they were eating a healthy balanced diet.

My just turned 8 year old is 137cm tall and we were told today she is on 100th centimetres. Not much help though

Dd will be 10 in Feb, she is 153 cm, size 5 feet. Don't know what she weighs, she's skinny as a rake! She's grown 12 cm in last year. Dd1 is 11 and 156cm, I often get her size 6 adult clothes but it's tricky as some of them are too grown up for her. We find New Look's range, I think it's called 9:15, quite good for her.

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Fri 05-Dec-14 19:08:48

That should have said 100th centile. Didn't realise phone changed it

My 9yo is a DS rather than a DD, but he's 146 cm and is the tallest in the class (I think - unless someone has overtaken him recently) so your DD does sound tall! That's year 4 not year 5 though. He weighs around 4.5/5 stone.

I think I am growing the larger variety of girls here too! D d 2 is 4'11" and weighs. 7.5stone. with size 5 feet. D d1 is 5'4" and weighs 8.5stone. She has size 5 feet too!
However it is dd2 who looks out of place amongst. her class mates though with being nearly a head taller than most of them.
Thanks for the tip about New Look, we have recently been buying clothes from ladies sections but it is hard finding the right fit.

MicronesiaIsMyHome Sat 06-Dec-14 08:21:56

Forgot to add that dd1 is 11 and dd2 is 9 now but 10 in March.

Don't know but she has size 3 feet and has clothes for aged 10-13 generally.

She is very slim.

I must measure her today. Just need to locate the measuring tape.

My 9 yo dsd is about 132cm tall and 25kg but she is all leg! she is only in age 7-8 for her waist but she needs 9-10 for her height. god bless him&m and morrisons for adjustable waists for 9-10yo's!!!
