How many growth spurts does a child usually go through, and are there common age ranges when they go through their growth spurts? At what age do children usually stop growing?
It truly depends on the age of the child in question.
- Newborns will go through growth spurts every few weeks.
- From toddlerhood through early adolescence growth spurts occur every few months (every child is different, but it can range from 3 to 9 months in frequency).
- The most noticeable growth occurs at puberty
- Growth spurts will continue to occur in most young adults through their early twenties, however they will be relatively infrequent and irregular.
