## In brief: The most usual

height predictor is done by pediatricians when the baby is 2: double his height at age 2! Other estimators use a calculator taking into account the parent's heights: add the mother's and father's height together, add 5 inches, divide by 2.
This is purported to reliably give a result within 4 inches of what will really happen. That's about the best GUESS I can give you. Good wishes:)
