Toddlers

Growth in toddlers (age 1-4 years)

Overview

Your little baby has all of a sudden become a toddler, and it seems out of nowhere! The last year has been a blur of health visits, doctors and vaccinations! Over the last year you have probably been good at keeping up with your baby’s growth but you may be wondering if you child is where you would expect them to be for their age.

As a reference, from 1 to 4 years of age, children grow at a rate of about 10 cm per year.
