  • I think with my son it was not until he was stable on his feet, maybe around 1 year old.

  • They do it on the board, so they can control the child more. When the child is standing up they're more likely to bend down, move around, etc. So it's easier to do it on the board. When they outgrow the board they have no other choice.

  • They started measuring my daughter standing at 2. They had her lay on the exam table and mark at her feet, and at her head then move her and measure until then.

  • Not soon enough!! My son HATES to lie down and be measured. He cries like we are killing him. Just had 18 month visit and they did it laying down.
