Percentiles

When do they start putting yourbaby into percentiles? My husband's family and my Dad's family are VERY tall, and my 4 month old son seems incredibly long, but I don't really have anyone to compare to. What is the average length of a 4 month old.

  • the average height for a 4 month boy is 25 inches. I used my pedis percentiles chart, the cdc percentile chart, and the what to expect when your expection chart, and they all said 25 inches :) And i just looked it up and thats what my son was at that age :)
