Height Chart for Boys from 2 – 12 Years
One of the things that bother parents and specially mothers is to see if their kids are growing up properly when they are babies. We shared our height and weight chart for babies from 0 to 2 years. The same continues even after kids have reached toddler stage and even later specially if the kid is on skinnier side.
Here we share the average height chart and weight chart for boys between the age of 2 years and 12 years, i.e. after toddlerhood till they reach puberty. This the age when boys grow at a normal rate just before they hit puberty when they shoot up and seem to grow almost on a daily basis. During this age group, you will often see that girls seem to be growing faster and are often taller than the boys. But there is nothing to worry, as the biggest growth spurt is right around the corner.
Points to keep in mind when reading these charts
