Ex. The question from on the page that my 8-month-old son is only 66 cm tall. If you compare the graph, he is short. Is there any way to help my child grow? Both parents are 160 cm tall.

A : Babies are ages from 1 month to 1 year. To monitor an infant's growth rate, a combination of elements is required as well as weight and length, including history from birth Importantly, measuring the length of an infant must be accurately measured. However, there may be many factors that affect a very young baby. It is important to take full nutrition and sleep. Children aged 6 months to 1 year may be able to start supplementing 2 meals in addition to breast milk. Because good nutrition can help children grow and develop as well. Infants grow very quickly. Parents should monitor their baby's growth regularly and see whether weight and height trends meet the standards. However, if the baby's growth rate is monitored consistently and correctly, it is found that the baby's growth does not meet the criteria. We recommend visiting your pediatrician for further examinations.

Zinc also contributes to the stimulation of bone regeneration. While iron is not the main mineral that directly stimulates growth in height, it is important because iron is the key ingredient in red blood cells. If red blood cells are completely healthy, they can provide better oxygen and nutrient transport to other parts of the body as well as bones. As a result, the body can grow up to its fullest. However, in addition to taking zinc and iron supplements, both minerals can be obtained from different foods. Foods high in zinc include meat, liver, seafood.

A: Your baby's growth rate will depend on whether your baby has passed the Growth Spurt or not. If elongation has passed, the mean height will not be the same as before the elongation due to the influence of sex hormones causing the Growth Plate to be closed. The average height is gradually reduced to 5 - 7 cm / year, then 3 - 5 cm / year and 1 - 2 cm / year until the height stops. While at some stage, the child grows rapidly. The average height for boys is approximately 10 - 14 cm/year. The average height for girls is about 8 - 10 cm / year. But to be specific about how many centimeters a baby can be each year is unanswered as it depends on diet, nutrition, exercise and adequate sleep. However, children are likely to be even higher, just parents focus on food and nutrition, including protein, vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K2 and vitamin D3, calcium and minerals. It is important for the growth of the bones to be sufficient and full so that your baby grows to the fullest potential that he is capable of.

24. Where does the mid parental height in the page come from?

A: It is a formula that pediatricians use to calculate approximate height in Pediatrics and Endocrinology pediatrics

        Paper of the initiator named Tanner JM, Goldstein H, Whitehouse RH. Standards for children's height at ages 2-9 years allowing for heights of parents. Arch Dis Child 1970; 45:755.


Usually, there are two types of height calculations used by pediatricians:

      1. Mid parental Height and Target Height

It is the height according to the genetic potential. Parents can try to calculate the approximate height of their children by themselves as follows.

Boy = (Father's height + mother's height +13) ÷ 2

For example

Father's height = 175 cm, Mother's height = 152 cm.

175 + 152 = 327 cm.

Add 13, you get 327 + 13 = 340.

Divide by 2, you get 340/2 = 170.

170 centimeters is the approximate height of your future son.

Girl = (Father's height + mother's height – 13) ÷ 2

For example

Father's height = 175 cm, Mother's height = 152 cm.

175 + 152 = 327

Minus 13, 327 - 13 = 314.

Divide by 2, you get 314/2 = 157.

157 centimeters is the approximate height of your future daughter.

*** the probability of the final height is in the range of  8.5 centimeters Therefore, the last son's height is 161 - 179 centimeters, and the daughter is 148 - 166 centimeters, respectively.

2.Bone Age (Predicted Adult Height)

        The age of the bone can be determined by an X-ray of the left hand from the wrist to the fingertips by comparing all bone growth with standard bone age X-ray images. Bone age can tell how much a child can grow. Typically, doctors will monitor a child's development and growth using the gender and ethnic growth standard graphs, which include a graph of height and weight relative to age. Parents can compare their weight, height and normal values.

      *** See the graph of growth standards for girls and boys. ***

*** Typically, doctors use both methods of calculating height, using genetic calculations along with bone X-rays to determine the age of the bone. Bone age determines how much a child is able to grow and the final height is analyzed together. Bone age does not have to be the same as its actual age because other factors and hormones determine it. In particular, sex hormones. Calculations with this method require a consultation with a specialist doctor or an endocrinologist. ***

25. If my daughter eats a lot of tofu and soybeans, will she be at risk of premature puberty?

A: Soy contains a substance called isoflavone, which works like estrogen but is present in very small amounts. Eating soy or soy products has no effect on hormonal changes. On the other hand, obesity can lead to premature girls. We recommend eating regular amounts, such as 1-2 boxes of soy milk per day.

26. My child is too tall, is there any medicine that can help?

A: Be careful with children who grow up too quickly

Please be aware that there is a risk of precocious puberty that can lead to early childhood growth and advanced bone age. The bone head will close earlier than scheduled. Thus, the first fast-growing child can become the future young or tall adult. Precocious Puberty will also affect the child's height and mental state. Especially girls who tend to develop their breasts before the age of 8 or have their first menstruation before the age of 9. Different bodies with peers of the same age The boys were noticed by the size of the testicles that were larger than 4 ccs. If a child has this disease, a doctor should be sought for treatment to slow down the youth. The doctor will measure bone age and other factors such as hormones, genetics, height, to diagnose and evaluate treatment, and advise whether injections should be given to slow bone closure to increase height. However, it depends on each case. If you suspect that your child is too fast or too old, you can check and consult a specialist at Pediatric Center, Bangkok Hospital. There is a medical team ready to diagnose and provide holistic care from birth to adolescent.

27. Why is sleep so important?

A: Adequate and timely sleep will stimulate Growth Hormone to stretch bones and muscles. Children grow more at night than day and also help release melatonin to sleep and repair the body fully. The child should focus on sleeping early (before 10pm) as a regular and regular sleeper and sleeping in a dark, cool room to allow both hormones to be released to their full potential.
