Height and Weight Chart

The following height and weight charts outline the height and weight for children (sex-wise) below two years and their expected weight for height. It should be remembered that children differ and each child must be considered in the context of his or her own growth pattern. But, it is essential to keep in mind that too much of deviation from the ideal height and weight for a specific age demands attention as there are chances for the child to be underweight or obese or stunted.

As for the physical growth from birth to two years, it is truly a marvel as the child progresses from a stage of complete helplessness and passiveness to the one that enables the child to explore the environment and interact with others.

The spectacular changes in growth and development that occur during the first two years will never again be repeated throughout the entire life span.
