Your son's height is below the average for his age. The average height for a boy of 14 months is 78cm. His weight is above the average and falls on the so-called 75th percentile line of the infant growth chart;this puts him in the top 25% for boys of his age.The average weight for a 14 month boy is 10.2kg.So he is rather overweight when taken in relation to his height.
