Probably Not.: Those numbers refer to millimeters? Then no. Are you saying a 13 yr old girl is giving birth? If so, even her skeletal system may be too underdeveloped to allow a child to pass through. Please seek help immediately. Can you summon an ambulance? Or take her to apolice or fire station? If you have no one at all, just try to relax. Push but don't pull. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: There are many of factors involved in what is "average" in the human body. The body type, bone density, muscle mass and other genetic factors play a large role. I have seen people range from size 7 mens to 14 mens at 5'11". Kids tend to have larger feet compared with their height because their feet finish growing before their leg bones do. Just as puppies have big paws and then grow into them. ...Read more
New carseat rec are rear-facing longer. My kids seats can rear-face til 45lbs- my kids weigh 36 but are 6&4. What is reasonable for micro-preemies?
Question unclear: If your 6 & 4 yo were micro-premies , it never hurts them to be rear facing if the seat is so designed. Protection from the forward head snap & spinal cord stretch is the primary reason for this recommendation. You can see an interesting video at www.Joelsjourney.Com reflecting the neck injury of a 35 lb boy who was forward facing. If you have new micro-premies, a car bed may be in order. ...Read more

Penis size: While it is normal to be curious, it is best to leave private parts private. Comparisons may result in lowered self esteem. There is much discussion about penis size in our culture.

If someone is 12 years old with size 8 US feet and is 5 foot 2 inches tall, how tall would you expect them to be?
Depends...: ... on lots of different factors, like parents' heights, your growth curve to-date and height velocity, pubertal stage, etc. That said, that height is above average for a 12-year-0-month-old male (months matter here). So all other things being equal (again, it depends on a lot of other things), I'd expect final height to also be above average for adult males, or somewhere north of 5'10" to 6'1". ...Read more
Do babies age to weight/length percentiles project to their potential adult size... Or is it only applicable to their babyhood?
Growth: Potential adult height depends mostly on family height. One rough calculation: mid parental height (+) 1 inch for boy and (-) 1 inch for girls. Infants and young children temporarily loose weight with slowness of growth when they have minor illnesses, and catches up soon after recovery. The child who has been always overfeed and big has seen to be overweight as adults. ...Read more
Our son is 4 years old. Docktor told us to buy shoes with thomas's heels because his heels are turned slightly outward. What do you suggest?
You can or...: Get good lace up athletic type shoes. You may want to consider high top style for more support. Finding shoes with thomas heels is going to be difficult. Observe how he walks as he develops. If it looks odd to you, take him to a podiatrist that is good at treating children. He may need some type of added support to the inside of the shoe. I wish you well with him. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
