I found in the DHS material about what type of scales etc were used for children when they were older then two. However for children under two the material only specifies that the child is measured lying down. Is height still measured using the wooden stadiometer?

Dear User,
Here is a response from one of our experts, Dr. Monica Kothari:
Yes, for kids length we use the same Shorr board that is used for measuring height.
