Q.

height of an 18 month old girl

my 18 month old girl is 85cm tall! Is that quite tall as everyone keeps saying she looks 2 already. What percentile does she fall in and how tall do you think she could be when she stops growing

Your little girl's height is on the 75th percentile which is above average for her age.She should follow this pattern and growth percentile until she has stopped growing. She will always be above the average height, but not excessively tall.
