If you look around, you see children and adults of different sizes and shapes. Some of them are skinny; others fat, some tall, others short.

 

And because of all these sizes and shapes, you start wondering if your child’s growth is normal.

 

To learn about the standards and benchmarks, try to have a quick look on the following baby growth stages chart for length and weight – of babies’ ages 0 to 12 month:

It is to be noted that above figures released by the World Health Organization are credible. Yet they may not fully apply to your child especially that racial differences, genetics, diet and weight/ height upon birth may influence the baby growth stages. The most important thing is that the variation between your baby’s sizes and these rates is not more nor less than 20%.
