  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Doctors measure length till babies don't stand and height when they stand.In normal term infants the height increases by 30% at 5 months and almost 50% by 12 months of age.Approximately there is a gain of 25 cms during first year.How much is your granddaughter's height?Height is determined by a child's nutrition,genetic factors and parents height.If your granddaughter is developmentally normal and is active playful do not worry.She will gain height.Give her a nutritious diet rich in fruits,vegetables ,pulses,cereals and continue breast feeding.See a Paediatrician for monitoring her height at every 6 months.
