    My oldest two daughters have the same two parents. One daughter is 5’6″ and the other is 6’!! Same gender, same parents, same upbringing, same overall health, vastly different heights. Obviously these tools are just for fun and can’t really tell you anything trustworthy. Doubling their heights at 18 months proved to be far more accurate in my case.

    I put in my parents info. It was right for my height!

    Right in some cases but wrong on mine. My dad is 6’3 and my mom is 5’7. It says i should be around 5’8. Well im first born and only 5’3, my sister is 7 years younger than me and is 5’6. I am the shortest in both sides of my family. Why am iso didifferent?!? Oh its also ironic that my husband is the tallest in his family at 6’0. So no clue on how tall our daughter will be… she is 5 months old and can barely squeeze into 1yr old shoes. So she might be tall like dad with big feet cause dad wears a 13.

    Just out of curiosity I entered my parents info, it came up with 5’5″, my sister is 5’6″, like mom and I’m 5’8″.

  5. Avatar of Karen Karen says:

    My 14 month old is wearing 18 mos, he’s almost 2.5’tall already, his predicted height is 5’10” but I won’t be surprised if he grows taller.

  6. Avatar of Karen Karen says:

    My 15 year old is 5’10”, I won’t be surprised if they both grow past 6′. My dad was the short one @ 5’11″so even though hubby is only 5’6″ & I’m 5’8″ I expect our sons to take after our relatives who are all tall.

    Way off. My son is already over 2 feet tall at 11 months old and they are predicting him to be 6’1″ to 6’4″ even though his daddy is only 5’5″. I am 5’9″ and all of the men in my family are over 6’0″. My husband’s relatives range from extremely short 4’8″ to very tall 6’5″! This predicted my son to be 5’10”. My son wears 18 months bottoms for the length right now. He is taller than my twin sister’s 3 year old son.

      Notice this is just to predict your childs height, its not set in stone or anything. Its for fun. Everyones child grows at different rates, so there is no telling how tall your child is really going to be until they reach that point. Just FYI.

    I put in my parents heights (mom is 6’1″ and dad is 6’4″) and it was surprisingly accurate. I have a sister three inches shorter than I am (5’10”), this method guessed the height of my parents theoretical daughter to be 5’11”, or one inch taller than my sister and two inches shorter than me.

    I put my parents’ height in the chart to see if it would guess my height…it was way off…my mother is 5’6″ and my father is 5’8″…the generator guess my height to be 5’4″ and I am actually 5’9″. Can’t wait to see what my child will be like. Her daddy is 6’3″…the generator said she would be 5’9″.

    Ok, now I did my daughter prediction…I am 5’7 & my husband was 6″2…predicted 5’7 for my daughter. She turned out to be 5’8…Pretty close! I agree with another reviewer…” not real accurate but fun to do ” :) Thanks :)

    Height predictor not true….my mother was 5’4 & my father was 5’8….the prediction was 5’5″” for me….I turned out to be 5’7″

    What’s the average height for a baby at four months? My son is already 26 inches is that considered short or tall for his age?

  14. Avatar of Marie Marie says:

    My mom was 4’11” and my dad was 6’1″ im 5’9″ but my sister is only 4’9″. No dwarfism, just small people. She and I look exactly alike despite a 17 year age difference all the way down to the direction the curls in our hair grow. There’s no predicting height. Some people are going to have the grass tickling their butts when they run like my sister and im destine to smack my head on chandeliers.

    My dad is 6’1″ & mom 5’11” & I came out to be 6ft tall. (It said I should be 5’8″). But this is fun. I’d be interested in trying it in other people.

    This is Just for Fun ladies and genlemen. The more accurate measurements are that like Ann mentioned about their height at 2 years. Its in medical and psychology textbooks so there must be some truth behind it. However, science isn’t always accurate either.

    My son is already going to be way taller then your saying hes going to be

  18. Avatar of Jessie Jessie says:

    My son is 2 and already 3 ft 4 in. I am 5’2″ and his father was 6’1″ and it says he will be 6′ even. Sounds right to me…

    You people think this can really tell you 100% how tall your baby will be ? You’ll just have to wait and see.

    This is cute:)

  21. Avatar of heather heather says:

    This is just an average prediction. It obviously depends on genetics. Again it’s an ‘average’ ‘prediction’.

  22. Avatar of Andreana Andreana says:

    This is not accurate. Said my daughter will be 5’3…she is 5’3 and only 11. Doctor said she will be around 5’7.

  23. Avatar of Izzy Izzy says:

    My daughter is already 11 and is very tall and I was wondering how tall she would be after she stops growing and with a 6’3 dad and a 5’4 mom it says she’ll be 5’6 she is already 5’7 though and won’t stop growing anytime soon (:

  24. Avatar of Ann Ann says:

    best predictor is at their 2 year appt to multiply their height at 2yrs old and that will be more accurate to a full height. My daughter at 2 was 33″ her height will be 66″ (5’6″) She is 5 now, but she is shorter than other kids and will more than likely take her height from her father’s side of the family which the women are not very tall. Another thing is to notice how big their feet are growing. The feet are the platform for the height, you never see a short person with big feet! My daughter still wears a size 10 her cousin that is 7 months older is in a 12. I have other cousins that are not 2 yet and wear a size 9!! she will be tall like her daddy!!! Nothing is going to work…but the multiplation of their height at 2yr and the size of their feet will generally being a telling sign of their height!

    • Avatar of Regan Regan says:

      I am 5’1″ and wear a size 11 shoe. So yes, short people do have big feet too.

    • Avatar of Christina Christina says:

      My son is 3 mo shy of 2 yrs so I’ll have to check his height at that time..good point to know. I wouldn’t ‘t necessarily go by foot size though. I’m only 5’1″ but have a shoe size of 9!!

    Don’t forget the importance of diet and nutrition – those things affect height. Another thing to think about would be if your parents started smoking in their tweens and early teens – if they did, they would have been taller if they had never smoked!
