Breastfed Baby Growth Chart
Patterns & Expectations
Every mother needs the reassurance that their baby is growing and weighing enough to ensure they are healthy.
Breastfeeding moms feel extra pressure for their baby not to have poor weight gain.
“What’s most important for new moms to understand is that their baby follows their curves on a breastfed baby growth chart and the baby’s weight gain is consistent.”
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.
If you suspect your baby is not gaining enough weight, you can weigh your baby easily with the help of a baby scale that is readily available at your child’s pediatrician’s office.
Every baby has a different body structure, and demands and every baby is different from the other.
The only thing that matters is that you continue to provide the nutrition they need and the baby meeting developmental milestones.
