Since the growth charts compact a lot of information into a small space, they can be a little confusing to use and I often get requests for help from parents who don't understand how to plot their child on the charts.This guide, and the picture below, should provide you with all of the information you need to use the growth charts to follow how well your child is growing. The first step is to find the right growth chart. In our example, we are going to find the percentile for a 2 year old boy who weighs 30 pounds, so we will use the growth chart for Boys from Birth to 36 Months. Next, (step A on the chart below) find your child's age at the bottom of the chart and draw a vertical line (a straight line up and down) on the growth chart. In our example, we drew a line through 24 months or 2 years.
Getting into a routine with your baby is a personal thing. You'll learn to read your baby's cues to develop a pattern of eating, sleeping, and playing that meets your little one's needs and works for your family.That said, it can be a big help to see what other moms and dads are doing. We asked parents of 3- and 4-month-olds to share their baby's daily schedule, then picked the seven below as a helpful representation. (If you have a baby this age, share your routine in the comments section at the bottom of this page!)As you're creating a schedule for your baby, keep in mind that at 3 and 4 months most babies need:12 to 24 ounces of breast milk or formula in a 24-hour period, though this amount may be as high as 36 to 40 ounces. (Get specific tips on how to tell whether your baby is getting enough breast milk or formula.) Some parents start solid foods like rice cereal when their baby is 4 months old.
in australia, some terrifying video, but fortunately, a happy ending. on thursday, a stroller carrying a 6-month-old baby rolled off a platform and into the path of an oncoming train as the boy's mother looked on in horror. the child was dragged more than 100 feet but survived with only a bump on his head. truly a miracle there. oh, just stopped your heart watching that video.
