how to measure two year olds?

i was wondering when the doctor switches from measuring kids laying down to measuring them standing up? my ds son goes for his 2 year appt in july and i was just curious. i also heard there tends to be a little difference (like an inch) between the two forms of measuring so it sometimes alters the growth curve.

  • My son is 2 1/2 and they measured him standing up at his 2 year check up.

  • Mine were all measured standing as soon as they were big enough for the standing scale - 18 months or 2 year checkup.
