How do I measure my
baby's growth?1

Growth charts are a tool used by healthcare professionals to help monitor you baby’s growth and identify if they are at risk of faltering growth. The charts map the length/height, weight and head circumference of your baby up to the age of two years. You can print and use these with your healthcare professional.

It is important to note, that breastfed and bottle-fed babies may grow at different rates.

If you have any concerns, please discuss these with your healthcare professional.
