    Default Short in stature

    Hi All

    My daughter had her 12 month check yesterday. Everything is going great except she is only 25 percentile for height. The nurse made the comment to my DH that she is going to be very short. My question is has anyone's bub experienced this and had a big growth spurt and caught up or is she just always going to be a shorty?

    Thanks in advance

    I have had a few shorty's. Two stayed short, one has had a massive growth spurt and is now very tall for her age the the other one has gone on to be normal height. They have a short daddy.
