How can you tell if your baby will be tall?
Babies do inherit their parents’ body types — tall, short, heavy, or slender. Based on this genetic factor, you can estimate your child’s adult height by adding Mom’s and Dad’s heights (in inches), dividing that number by two, and adding 2.5 inches for boys or subtracting 2.5 inches for girls.
What does it mean if my baby has short legs?
Achondroplasia is the most common form of short-limb dwarfism. It is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by a mutation in the gene that creates the cells (fibroblasts) which convert cartilage to bone. This means, if the gene is passed on by one parent, the child will have achondroplasia.
Can small babies grow up to be tall?
Not necessarily. Long babies may well grow up to be tall, but genes also have an influence. If you and your partner are tall, then your baby is also likely to be tall, even if he was a small baby. However, there are no guarantees.
