Post a reply: measuring sitting height

Hello, We foresee to measure sitting height during a nutritional survey in South-Sudan. In previous discussion thread, you describe the method with the child sitting on a table...I read also the description of the method used by Schilg and Hulse, but I don't think this will be feasible in a refugee camp setting... How did you in practice during your surveys in Ethiopia? is it OK if the child is sitting on the height board, at floor level, with the leg straight? How do you do for children < 2 years? thank you
