My 4 year old is not on growth chart he was born 6 lb but 2 week later drop below 5 percentile and never recover. Should I be concern?
Growth chart is it!: To many factors to consider, but growth potential (parental height), nutrition and underlying illnesses (ie. Heart, metabolic, gastrointestinal, genetic, etc) may play a role. Talk with your doctor and ask to see the growth chart. In it is the key to being reassured or finding reason for further work up.
Follow trends: Growth charts are based on normal ranges and patterns of growth. Generally, kids follow a line in the height, weight, or head circumference charts, but there's a lot of variability and sometimes "crossing" of growth lines. One number by itself means far less than trends. Anything too high or low - above or below the group of lines - may or may not indicate a problem, but deserves a look.See 3 more doctor answers
Correct Measurement?: Exellent question! The problem isn't the growth chart, it is the quality of the measurement plotted onto the growth chart. When a point on a growth chart doesn't seem right, the measurement should be taken again. It is so easy to make measurement mistakes in length and height depending on how the measurement is taken and whether the child is moving around. Remember to take the shoes off!
Identify PATTERNS: Growth charts allow us to determine whether the trend or pattern of a child's growth is healthy. This is crucial, because individual measurements may be +/-, due to squirming babies or slightly different measuring techniques. While it's tempting to focus on individual measurements, this often creates undo anxiety. The big picture--over time--is usually what matters most.See 1 more doctor answer

I am 5'9". My husband is 5'10". Approximately how tall should our 16mo old boy be? At 26.5 inches he has fallen off the growth chart. Is this odd?
Odd measurements: If your 16 mo boy measures 26.5 inches I would have done a workup on him for failing to grow months ago. He should measure 32 inches or so with his parental genes. If he has been diagnosed with a major medical problem, syndrome or other issue, this might be expected, but not in an otherwise normal kid.

Lots of measuring: The children's hospital in denver became famous for collecting growth curves for many of the children followed in their clinics. Infant formula companies printed them up and gave them out free to all pediatricians. We then realized that different groups of children grow at different rates. Different ethnic groups have their own curves and children with cp, downs, etc. Have their own curves.See 1 more doctor answer
