# Baby height predictor (pretty neat!)

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!)

My son is 6'1" which is pretty funny since I am only 5'3" on a slanted floor Lol. He is 9 and already up to my mouth.

Lol I'm 5'6 and hubby is 6'4 so it stands to reason why my son is going to be so tall haha

When we saw a bone specialist he told me don't be surprised if my son hit 6'4 or even 6'6' and he was only 5 at the time. (My son has on-going knee problems since he was 3 which has meant several specialists.)

I'm sorry, what is it? A phone app or something you can find online... or....?

I'm a little confused... Am I missing part of the picture?

Just google it. It's just an online thing. Google khamis-roche method. It should be the first thing that pops up..

Ok, thanks.

You should explain that in the original post, and maybe post a link.

based on data from when I was younger and my parent's heights I should only be 5'2 (which is what a bone age scan indicated when I was 9 as well) I am 5'7...they aren't accurate, so many things determine this.
