.... or does it just make them a funny shape?

Now I was expecting a serious thread and was coming on merely to type something like that seeker!

If it makes them a funny shape you can always get Channel 5 to make a documentary about it later wink

Too much pressure could produce a squashed vertically challenged child too. (bass boom)!!wink

Yes, but very, very carefully, so that they don't end up going twang.

Mine could do with a bit of vertical stretching TBH.

If only I had been stretched at school I might have ended up a little bit taller.

Methinks someone needs to hand out the parenting handbooks again.

Is this why my DS is so long and thin? There's me thinking it was becasue he never stops eating.

NO!
DD1 is already taller than me. DD2 is growing as I watch.

She has promised to call me "a Garden Gnome" once she's passed me too!
