Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

How tall is your child please?

child is girl normal size for 14 months old.


And how tall is that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

my granddaughter is a doctor and informs me that the child is 76cm.if you require any further information please let me know.

In that case it is unlawful.
