Baby's First Year Growth Charts

02 September, 2018 | DD Staff

The pedriatician or attending nurse will hand you a growth chart shortly after your baby is born. There are lines and grids. So many many lines and grids. There are percentiles, it's in pounds and inches. There is so much information, it's all too much.

We've created handy cheat sheets to help you stay on top of all those measurements. Download our first year chart for a baby girl and/or a baby boy. Growth milestones vary based on your child's gender.

Always consult with a qualified medical professional or childcare expert when taking important decisions regarding your child and their health.

Impress your partner with key facts, take better co-parenting decisions and be 'in the know'. Visit our Partners & Parents resource center for more.
