Anyone know any accurate ones?
I "test" the accuracy by inputting my parents' and my info; then, if it gives me my height, I figure it's pretty accurate. Most of them say I should be 5'3" instead of the 5'2" I am. I'm not sure now whether they're off or I am.

They seem fairly accurate in my experience.

When I tested with my parents' heights I usually get 5'7" for myself and I am 5'6".

To me, a predictor within an inch or two is about as accurate as you can possibly get.

My Pedi said you take their 2yr height, and dble it for their total height as an adult. DD is well on her way, they said 5'9 to 5'10 , not sure on DS yet.

I've heard the 2 year old mark before... there's also the puberty one, especially for girls. When a girl gets her first period she usually grows 2 more inches. 

But you have to remember that mixing two sets of genes doesn't always turn out the same.  I have 2 girl cousins, one is 5'2" and the other is 6'1".

You can just google height calculator or children's height predictor, etc. The only one that gave me my height was the one at baby center.

I'll check that with my girls.
Do you know when to measure for boys?
