Growth Charts and Tanner Staging

From 0 - 2 years we measure height, weight, and head circumference and plot each on growth charts.

From 3- 18 years we measure height, weight and body mass index and plot each on growth charts.

Growth charts consist of a series of percentile curves that illustrate the distribution of selected body measurements in children. What is important for each child is the trend over time. The percentiles generally stay the same from year to year. Any divergence in the previous percentile is a cause for discussion.

*BMI is calculated  based on your height and weight and is used to indicate your normal body proportions. The percentile should stay roughly the same from year to year.  This reflects someone’s genetic body shape.  If you are troubled about a less-than-perfect body image, remember that a healthy mental attitude is just as important as physical fitness.  If your BMI measurement seems wrong for you, trust your own judgment, and ask us for an objective and informed opinion.

Tanner Staging

Tanner Staging or Sexual Maturity Rating is based upon physical exam findings of axillary (armpit) and pubic hair amount and type, breast development in girls and testicular size in boys.  Girls generally get their first period around 2 years after breast development starts.  Linear (height) growth gradually stops once periods start, so girls have completed most of their growth by early to mid-teens.  Boys’ growth spurt generally occurs during the mid-teen years and can continue to age 16-18.
