Good evening, thanks for the question
Even the growth and development of twins can be different from one another. According to one study said that twins born first will have greater weight and height in infancy to childhood than children born second. But similar research is still needed to be able to support the statement.
Other factors can also affect the difference in growth from the start in the womb. The difference is influenced by the quality of the placenta during the womb, nutrition eaten, accompanying diseases, or the presence of an infection condition.
Until the age of 11, girls will generally remain higher because of their peak growth at this time. Then 2 years later, boys will start to exceed girls' height because puberty occurs more slowly. We recommend that you do a routine height check during the age of the child is still taken 6 years to monitor whether the development is in accordance with normal or not. The examination can be done at the posyandu or in a doctor's practice.
That's all, hope you can help
