What is a Breastfed Baby Growth Chart?

A tool published by the World Health Organization (WHO). There are different growth charts used for boys and girls.

There is no wrong or right curve. The goal is that a breastfed baby’s weight and height follow a trend similar to the curves illustrated on the charts.

Growth charts use a series of percentile curves.

In the first few days after birth, a baby will have weight loss. It is normal as long as it is within limits.
