Physical growth of children
During infancy and childhood, there are many important physical and developmental changes that take place. Below given are few facts for child growth development -
- The head size of babies at 2 years of age is about 80% of the adult size.
- By 4 months of age, babies usually weigh twice as much as their birth weight.
- By 1 year of age, the average baby will likely weigh about 3 times as much as at birth.
- Infants typically grow about 10 inches (25 cm.) during the first year, and height at 5 years is about double the birth length.
- In boys, half the adult height is attained by about age 2. In girls, height at 19 months is about half the adult height.
- During the toddler years, the growth rate slows to a steady pace and your baby’s adorably chubby arms, legs and belly slim down.
- Puberty is the second big growth spurt in a child’s life, with the largest height gains between ages of 10 and 14 for girls and 12 and 16 for boys.

Factors that determine child growth
There are several factors why a child may not be growing as fast as his or her classmates or siblings. These factors can range from genetics to poor nutrition to certain diseases, e.g. conditions affecting the digestive system including gastroesophageal reflux (GER), chronic diarrhea, cystic fibrosis, chronic liver disease, and celiac disease. It may even be that a child's body is sensitive to certain foods, which is called food intolerance. For example, milk protein intolerance means the body can't absorb foods that have milk proteins, such as yogurt and cheese, which could lead to failure to thrive.
