Normal Growth

What is considered a normal growth rate?

Growth involves not only the length and weight of a body, but also includes internal growth and development.

Normal growth is categorized in a range used by pediatricians to gauge how a child is growing. The following are some average ranges of weight and height, based on growth charts developed by the CDC:

AgeHeight - Females
(in inches)
Height - Males
(in inches)
Weight - Females
(in pounds)
Weight - Males
(in pounds)
127 to 3128 to 3215 to 2017 to 21
231.5 to 3632 to 3722 to 3224 to 34
334.5 to 4035.5 to 40.526 to 3826 to 38
437 to 42.537.5 to 4328 to 4430 to 44
642 to 4942 to 4936 to 6036 to 60
847 to 5447 to 5444 to 8046 to 78
1050 to 5950.5 to 5954 to 10654 to 102
1255 to 6454 to 63.568 to 13666 to 130
1459 to 67.559 to 69.584 to 16084 to 160
1660 to 6863 to 7394 to 172104 to 186
1860 to 68.565 to 74100 to 178116 to 202

Although a child may be growing, his or her growth pattern may deviate from the norm. Ultimately, the child should grow to normal height by adulthood. If you suspect your child or adolescent is not growing properly, always consult your child's doctor.
