Weight and height of a child 5 years old, preschoolers

Every time I get a little upset when my daughter grows out of clothes and shoes. I am a big lover of beautiful things and every time I feel sorry for parting with them. On the other hand, this once again confirms that the child’s body does not stand still, height and weight are growing.

Of course, all children are unique, but still there are some standards of height and weight, deviations from which require observation and medical consultation.

Here, the daughter has long been ahead of all their peers. Despite the fact that she is almost the youngest in kindergarten and in gymnastics class, she is ahead of everyone in the team in terms of height.

Now, at five years and 1 month, its growth is almost 120 cm. It gives me a lot of inconvenience, with which I am well known in adult life – this is the search for suitable trousers and jeans. Contrary to popular belief, models for thin and tall are few.

And constantly we are faced with the fact that the pants of suitable length are wide in the hips. And this is despite the fact that children’s jeans are usually regulated in a belt. Therefore, the model size of 6-7 years, most brands do not suit her, alas.

Although, if we turn to the WHO standards, the daughter still fits into them, even if she is in the category of very high. The minimum figure for five-year-old girls is 95.2 cm, the average is 110 cm, and the highest is 119 cm. Well, the extreme limit of the norm – 123cm.

For boys, the performance is almost the same. The lower limit of the norm is 96 cm, the average is 110 cm, the upper limit of the norm is 123.9 cm. By the way, indicators that are close to the average are considered normal, but low and high require increased attention.

Of course, it is necessary to take into account the fact of heredity. Seeing me and my husband, all the questions about the growth of the daughter disappear, because my height is 178 cm, and my husband is above 190 cm.

This is perhaps the most important characteristic in the first months of a baby’s life. At 5 years of age, this indicator may vary depending on the physique, heredity, nutrition and lifestyle of the child.

I believe that the daughter still weighs a lot, but I can not say that she uses more calories than she spends – her lifestyle is quite active. I write off her weight at 22-23kg for tall, because outwardly she does not seem to be complete at all.

What does WHO tell us? So, the lower and upper limits of the norm, which require increased attention and observation, are 12.1 and 29.5 kg, respectively. I think that 12 is very little, my daughter weighed so much in a year and a half.

The average rate, which is considered absolutely normal for girls 5 years of age – from 16.6 to 22.2 kg.

For boys, the risk zone is 12.4 and 27.9 kg. Normal is considered the weight in the range from 16 to 21kg.

In any case, if the child is healthy, alert, cheerful, and outwardly does not look exhausted or full, then there should be no cause for concern. Again, it should be traced to what were the indicators of weight and height of the parents of the child at the same age. And, of course, do not forget about regular checkups at the pediatrician!
