just curious how tall will my son be?

Hi I am curious I am 5ft asian woman my husband is 6ft cacusian. I was just wondering what are my chances my son will take my husband height, does anybody know or have any personal expiernce. He still infant so hard to tell but he has noticably large hands, so I've been told. My half brother and sister whom have an american father also have taken my mom and my height. thanks ya'all :-)

  • My mom is 5 feet and my dad is 5'11". My moms side is ALL short, and my dads side is all between 5'10 and 6'1" My brother is 5'10". But there is absolutely no way to predict this for anyone so I hope you aren't too hung up on height!

  • You can't really judge height until they are about 3 years old. A pediatric nurse told me that how ever tall the child is at 3 years is 1/2 the adult height. In general.

  • he'll probably be on the shorter side. Maybe 5'5 to 5'7

  • He will be between the two of you. If you were closer to the dads height, he would probubly be closer to the 6ft mark. But since you are shorter he will probubly be 5'7 5'7ish :)
