# Baby height predictor (OT)

Ok so this thing is a baby height predictor that predicts how tall your baby will be when they're older. It's based on the Khamis-Roche Method. If you google khamis roche method it will be the first thing that pops up. They used to do this by taking x-rays of the child's wrist and measuring bone age and whatnot. But this is a mathematical formula that does the same thing. For boys it can be up to 2 inches off and less than that for girls. You should try it, it's pretty neat!

(P.s, this is my sons predicted height!)

5'9" for my dd :) Sounds about right. I'm 5'8" and her dad is 6'3"

Last time I checked older ds would be 5'10, older dd would be 5'1, younger ds would be 5'8, and younger dd would be 5'3. Haven't done the baby at all, but so far she seems to be taking after older dd and me, so probably around 5'.

Came up short for my 13 year old son, based on the info I had from when he was two.

Another predictor taught to me by my parents: Measure the child on his or her second birthday, and double it. Worked with both me and my brother, and seems to be accurate for my son, who still isn't finished growing!
