Q.

baby height 80% more than his age

I have just been told that my baby height is 80% more than his age and is underweight for her height. He's gonna turn 6months few days to come. He looks heathy but not big weight 7.2kg. He eats normal and I really can't say the cause of his weight. Is this normal?? How tall do you think he's gonna be when is grown up.

This is very common these days with children seeming to be growing taller than previous generations. His weight is slightly below the average for his age but this is nothing to worry about.
