Infant Growth Chart


An infant growth chart is a practical way in which to determine whether your baby is on a normal growth track. However, before you use an infant growth chart, it is important to understand what is considered “standard” for general baby growth throughout the different stages of the first year.

Here are some guidelines to consider:

  • From the moment of birth to age about 6 months, a baby typically grows anywhere from 1/2 an inch to 1 inch ( which is about 1.5 to 2.5 centimeters) per month – gaining roughly 5 to 7 ounces (which is equivalent to 140 to 200 grams) per week. During the first 5 to 6 months of life, expect your baby to roughly double his or her weight.
  • From the age of 6 to 12 months, a baby typically grows another 1/2 inch (about 1 centimeter) per month- gaining 3 to 5 ounces (equivalent to 85 to 140 grams) per week. By the age of 1, expect your baby to double his or her height and tripe his or her weight.

As always, if you have any concerns regarding your infant’s health, consult your child’s pediatrician. However, it is important not to forget that some infants go through periods of time when they do not gain weight, or even lose weight. The infant growth chart is only to be used as a guideline in gaining a generalization of your baby’s growth track.
