Worried about your child’s growth?
Children grow at different rates - while some are tall, others are shorter. Every parent wants to make sure their child is growing well. Sometimes you might be worried that your child is shorter than their friends and then suddenly they have a growth spurt and catch up. Sometimes these worries can go on for longer.
You may be concerned if your child seems small for their age and doesn't seem to ever catch up, or if they are being teased about their height at school and other people have remarked on their development.
