That is hard to say. What does her pulmonologist say it should be? It varies from person to person. There are ranges but it will vary.

Re: what numbers should my 6 year olds peak meter be between

We have an appointment in 2 weeks with a pulmonalogist. His regular doctor gave us a peak flow meter but I can't find the paper work and don't remember where to place the yellow and green marks. Any suggestions?

As long as your child's number is consistant there isn't much to worry about. When their number plumets from the previous day, that's when you know something is wrong.

Don't worry about it. Wait till you see the pulmonologist.
