  • Yeah it's normal. My daughter is only 6 1/2 months old and she is 28" tall already.

  • 30 inches at 21 months is off the bottom of the chart. As long as she is growing at a steady rate, that's "normal" though she may end up short like you. If you are concerned, talk to her doctor at her 24 month check up.

  • Look at the women in your family. If they are petite then she will most likely be petite also. I hav ethe same problem. As long as she is healthy and developing then I wouldn't worry. My 2 yr old is the size of a 1 yr old and my 1 yr old is the same size but shorter. Genetics play a big part in it. She will be fine as long as she is healthy.

  • my boys are short and skinny they are 20 months they are 21 22 inches.... and they were 21 22 lbs. the doc said it is fine as long as they are eatting and growing also put them on pedisure. which is helping them gain weight and they are getting a lil taller.

  • I'm not sure I understand the concern here. Your almost 2 year old is 30 inches tall. So she's tall for a 2 year old. I really don't understand why this is a concern?

    My 28 month old is about 34 inches...but he's a boy.
