Worrying about your baby’s development especially during the first year is normal. Often, new moms find themselves fussing over their baby’s growth even with the doctor’s reassurance. To ease your mind, you can use our baby height percentile calculator to help you track how much your baby has grown and even compare it to the average baby height according to the WHO growth chart.
To use this, simply select your child’s birthdate, gender, and height then click on the calculate button and Viola!
Now, as a new mom, you are probably wondering what infant growth calculators are for. Well, these calculators such as our baby height percentile calculator can determine how well your baby is growing, particularly where she is on the WHO growth charts.
More specifically, the baby height percentile helps us see two things:
- We get to check how our baby’s height compares to the average baby height of those with the same age and sex and who are living in an environment that supports optimal growth.
- We also find out if our baby’s growth in height is following a healthy pattern. How do we do that? If your child’s height percentile is usually at 50% and it suddenly drops to 5%, then it may be something that you need to consult with your doctor.
By the way, if you want to see a full picture of your baby’s growth, you’ll need to get your baby’s height AND weight percentile. Also, do keep in mind that a boy’s height growth chart will be different from a girl’s so make sure you’re looking at the right chart.
