What Is The Latest That Someone Can Have A Growth Spurt
It Depends: This is a complicated question because the pubertal growth spurt of any child is inherently dependent upon the age at which the child reaches a particular point in puberty.

Sporadically: Typically babies will experience approximately 5 growth spurts throughout the first year of life. These most commonly occur from 1-3 weeks old; 6-8 weeks old; and then at 3, 6, and 9 months of age. The end result is a tripling of birth weight by age one for most babies.

First six months : Growth is most rapid in the first 6 months of life. It slows down after that.
