All kids are different. That’s what makes them who they are. So their rate of growth may not be the same as other kids their age.

But most kids follow a similar pattern as they reach certain growth milestones. These milestones may differ in infancy, childhood, and adolescence.

If you feel that your child is smaller than others his or her age, the best person to talk to about your child’s growth is your doctor.
