for anyone who is interested. It's a growth chart where you can plot the weight/length of your infant/toddler. I like it because you can save it and add to it, instead of putting in all of the numbers every time. I use it as a "guide" only but it's a bit of fun Personalized growth chart
The data used in these new charts was collected from both breastfeeding and formula feeding infants in the U.S.A. The breakdown of breastfeeding vs. formula feeding is similar to the number of infants who are breastfed vs. formula fed in the US, making these growth charts appropriate as assessment tools for both groups of infants. It is helpful to know that breastfed infants grow differently than formula fed infants. Exclusively breastfed infants usually gain weight more quickly than formula fed infants for the first few months of life. However, from 6-12 months the weight gain of the breastfed infants is less than formula fed infants.
