Kid's Height Predictor

Sam is only 4, and it's remarkable how much he looks like you. Will he take after your petite 5-foot-2-inch frame, or will he be as tall as his lanky 6-foot-1-inch dad?

Estimated Adult Height:

If you don't enter or don't know the birth parent's height, we'll use the CDC's average height for a man or woman.

Predicted heights are usually within 4 inches, taller or shorter, than actual adult height. Medical conditions and other factors can affect a child's growth. Estimates are less accurate when parent heights are far from average and for children who are short for their age.

Talk to your pediatrician if you're concerned about your child's height or growth.
