Your daughter's current length is above average but not far above the average for a baby girl of 2 months.Her length is on the 75th percentile line which places her in the top 25% for babies of her age as regards her length. There must have been a mistake in measuring her length at birth. The average length for a baby girl at birth is 51cm.
