Growth Charts for Boys and Girls

Do You Know Your Growth Chart?

When the pediatrician rattles off my son's weight and length stats, I typically have no idea where he falls on the growth chart. Concerned about the rest of the visit, I usually wait until I get home to plot his numbers on the map to see his percentiles. Do you know where your child is on the spectrum?

Don't forget to check the CDC growth chart (international, more breast milk than the other chart) versus the ones many pediatrician uses. Whole new ball game.

lol.. my nurse does the chart right after she measures her... takes her like -2 seconds, i didnt realize it took time. Kairi is in the 30th or so percentile for weight, and shes so tall shes off the charts. She just turned 16 months and shes 36 inches tall.
