Both apps use the data in your Baby Tracker, so if you already have data entered, your chart will automatically display it.
Avatar f tn Our daughter's height has been slowly dropping on her growth chart. Over the period of 2 years, she has gone from 95% down to 10%. The progression has been this: Birth: 95% 3 months: 50% 6 months: 45% 12 months: 25% 20 months: 15% 2 years: 10% She had serious health issues when born (two heart defects, heart failure, failure to thrive with weight) but these have all been resolved for over a year.
222117 tn?1227072847 The button looks like it has gears on it. Then look for the Weight Percentiles Chart and the Height Percentiles Chart and add them.

Avatar n tn My son is 22 months old and his penis has always seemed very small in comparison with other boys his age. I noticed recently that his weight and height haven't changed from a while. During his last 18-month well baby visit he was in the 90th and 95th percentiles for weight and height. Based on his current measurements he would now be in the 50th percentile for height and the 75th percentile for weight. Should I be concerned? Also, I am 5'10" and his father is 6'3".

118074 tn?1228332603 1 lb, the nurse said he's fallen off the chart...his height is in the 10-25 percentile. The doc didn't seems to be too concerned but she said he needs to have a different diet that contains more fat. Any suggestions here? I am very worried and don't know what to do since he doesn't like to eat. Help!
676912 tn?1332816151 Elijah's always been a monster, he was never below 90% for height and always above 50% for weight, mostly above 95% and 75% for height/weight. Aubryana is right now the same size Elijah was at 4 months and she's almost 9 months. Do I just have a little baby girl, or is she gonna start growing more as she gets older? I'm so used to Mr Giant.
Avatar n tn Both his weight and height are on the 10th percentile for his age which indicates his is in the normal range on the Growth chart. What is important with Growth Charts is that the infant grows at a steady pace over time. If he falls asleep while eating, suggest changing his diaper (which will wake him up) or just wake him up by moving him and then put him back on your breast to feed awhile longer.
Avatar f tn Your pedi should have a growth chart that has the percentile for weight and height. Have they showed you that? Are you sure he was 33in when he was one? That seems awfully big for a 1 year old. There is only 5 months difference between the other lady's 18 month old. When my son was 18 months I saw another lady's 18 month old and she was freaking out because her boy was so chunky and I was freaking out because my son was so skinny. All kids are different.
Avatar n tn gov When the website opens, type in 'growth charts' and then pick from the NCHS 2000 growth chart list the age group you want to see. Thank you for your question.
234415 tn?1203481759 They might have measured her wrong at a previous appointment. That is very common. In Brody's charts you can see a big mistake with his growth where his length went down! It was just a simple, human error. Also, some babies do stick their tongues out. My nephew does this and he is healthy and fine. Try not to jump to conclusions. Worrying will not change the outcome. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn also, is that when there are many food allergies at play, your Dr. should be carefully charting weight and height percentiles, to be certain he is on track and getting the proper mix of nutrients on a daily basis from other foods, etc., which he isn't allergic to. Sometimes a nutritionist is able to help if this occurs .... My daughter was below the charts for 2 years ..... back then, nobody realized or took food allergies seriously. Today, it is so much different.
Avatar n tn 5 lbs at one year (had a heart defect which could be to blame) and my pediatrician was concerned, but I think it was more that he was further off the charts than the actual weight. He had been following the growth charts, mind you he was in the negative 5th percentile, since he's been born, but at the one year check up he dropped to about negative 15, so I think that was what caused the concern. I have to go back in a couple of weeks for a weight check.
Avatar n tn I put those words in italics because I personally believe that height/weight charts are laughable and it's no way to actually judge whether or not a person is at a healthy weight. I can guarantee that I will never weight 135 LBs. I certainly do need to lose some weight because I am carrying some unhealthy weight but I am one of those people who will never be thin or "height/weight proportionate".
Avatar n tn and further more the very next morning i swear....i have gained more weight! i am literally gaining weight EVERY DAY.
Avatar f tn There are height and weight ranges for children which is indicated on Growth Charts. His height is normal, however, his weight is below the Growth chart for his age. You stated he is teething which some children do not feel well from it. Their appetite can decrease. Suggest you feed him small meals 5-6 times a day to help increase his weight and maybe it will decrease his ‘stomach aches’, as you stated.
Avatar n tn His weight is below the 3rd percentile and his weight is between the 10-5th percentile for his age. He is in the growth chart for his height but not weight. Genetics may play a part in his stature. Are the males in your family having small stature? His weight can be increased with additional foods. As a guideline for a 11-12 month old child should eat the following: Dairy 3 feedings a day – Milk (4oz), cheese (½ oz), yogurt (½ cup), or cottage cheese (¼ cup).
Avatar m tn And, if they are using more modern charts, you need to remember that most babies do switch to formula well before 12 months old and that also skews the charts in favor of more weight gain. In fact, according to WHO's height/weight chart (which is said to be based on breastfed babies only), your daughter ranks around the 30th percentile in weight. Not bad at all!!! Try not to worry, if she is reaching her milestones, she is most likely fine.

Avatar f tn When a child's weight and height are within the growth charts, they are consisted normal. Your daughter's weight is at the 90th percentile (near the top of the growth chart) with a lower height so the BMI may indicate an overweight child when she really is not. You should be concerned if her weight goes above the 95th percentile (‘off the growth chart’). Right now she is fine as long as she is growing at a steady rate.
Avatar f tn growth charts are available at nih website http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/ these are grouped into boys and girls and up to age 2 and beyond age 2, hope this helps.
280369 tn?1316705641 I thing the growth chart is different for boys, i have a book somewhere around here that has the weight and growth chart on it, the same one they use in dr office to keep record, i will look for it and post it 2mrw nite if you havent found the answer by then, or try googling growth charts and compare it from girls and boys.
Avatar n tn She is still a child and growth charts should be used to determine her growth patterns. If she has not grown or gained weight for a certain length of time, that is important regardless if she is within the growth chart. If you are concerned about the issues you described, suggest having blood work done. All the best to you.
Avatar n tn Her weight is still on the growth chart which is good. If her height was based on adult measurements she would need to gain that much weight, however, she is still a child and should be having her weight and height charted on the growth charts. She does needs to gain some weight. She is entering puberty and will be gaining weight as she becomes a 'woman'.
Avatar f tn hello Doctor, I recently checked out my son's weight and height. he is 9.8 kgs and 72cms height. is his height and weight normal for his age. he is exactly 1 year 4 months completed.
Avatar f tn Regarding your questions about your daughter's growth, I think you might find these charts to be of interest. You can use the appropriate ones to see where her height and weight fall within the normal ranges. http://www.halls.md/chart/child-growth/pediatric.htm As far as hypothyroidism, I know that the predominant test used to determine a patient's status is the TSH test; however, it does not correlate well at all with patient symptoms.
401219 tn?1205883081 Her height and weight are both below the curve, I would look at her growth curve with your pediatrician, if she has maintained a curve just below her whole life then monitor her, but if she has fallen, in particular with height I would indeed pursue things, check a blood count, electrolytes and urine(you have history of rta-easily treated, often missed), celiac antibodies, thyroid etc. Then have her weighed and measured about every 3-4 months at the pediatrician.
