So I was wondering.....

If the height of a child's parents determines theirs?
I am 5'6'' and my SO is 6'3''.... Our son is only 12 months but he is 35 inches and weights 25 1/2 LBS.... what about you?

  • convert your two heights to inches,add them up,half that number. subtract 3 inches for a girl,add 3 for a boy

  • Well with my first two kids (they have the same dad), we are both short--and they are short too.
    The guy I am with now (and having his baby) is a little over 6 foot.. so Ill let you know when I pop this baby out! =)

  • My midwife told me that boys are never shorter than their mothers and girls are never taller than their fathers.
