Before you compare the growth of your child to that of another, it is important to keep a few things in mind

  • The height and weight potential of any child depend on many factors including genetics and nutrition. Higher does not necessarily mean better.
  • The growth charts for Baby Boys and Baby Girls are different and one should not be compared with the other.
  • The height and weight of a child in the following months are linked to her height and weight at birth. Meaning, if your child is in the 3rd percentile of weight at birth, she is highly unlikely to go to the 97th percentile in the following months.
  • Children between the 3rd and 97th percentile of height and weight are considered to be growing normally.
  • There is cause for concern if your child falls below the 3rd percentile or above the 97th percentile, in which case you must consult your child paediatrician.
