Parents, most especially moms, are always worrying whether their kids are growing enough or growing normally for their age. By age two, the rate of growth decreases and the child builds more muscles. Thus, a healthy child should continue to grow at a steady pace when supported with good nutrition, adequate sleep, and exercise.
In a live session presented by SmartParenting.com.ph, Dr. Jun Dimaano, Jr. and celebrity mom Melissa Ricks join host Riki Flo in answering parents’ most pressing questions about their child’s development. They also gave a reminder about the importance of measuring the growth of their child (in terms of height and weight) at least once a month during the first five years. “These are very important indicators of the health of the child,” Dr. Dimaano shares.

“Aside from the obvious na medyo delayed ang growth niya compared to his peers, minsan hindi mo ito mapapansin especially kung walang sakit ang bata. One of the indirect ways is by looking at the appetite and also the behavioral manifestations such as picky eating,” says Dr. Dimaano.
