Will he be a doctor, lawyer, fireman, teacher, or a pro football player?
What color will his eyes be?
Will he look like mom or dad?
Parents don't get a crystal ball to answer these questions, so any predictions about your baby's future will be little more than guesses right now.
A prediction about how tall your baby will be when he gets older can be a little more than a guess though.
Kids' Height PredictorsThese height predictors can give you a pretty good idea of what your child's future height will be:
- Kid's Height Predictor - predict your children's future height based on their genetic potential (which is based on their genes and their parents' midparental height, so for example, tall parents will likely have tall kids).
- Kid's Height Calculator - Two Years Times Two Method, which uses simple linear regressions and doubles a child's height at age two years (keep this one in mind once your baby gets older).
Keep in mind that many factors may influence your children's future growth, including their overall health and nutritional status and their genetic potential.
