Child Growth Chart
Please read the following before you begin drawing your child's growth Chart:
Growth charts are a set of graphs that took a lot of years to be set and to show the area in which weight, height , head circumference and BMI are considered within or outside normal range.
These charts represent the NORMAL and ABNORMAL areas of growth. We can say that by studying your child's growth chart, we compare his growth with the growth of other normal children
NORMAL areas on a growth chart for a specific child are around the green curve between the orange curves
ABNORMAL areas on a growth chart for a specific child are those exceeding the upper or lower orange curves as explained below
This program enables you to draw a child's growth chart easily and accurately in minutes
The program draws : length chart, weight, head circumference and body mass index BMI for age
To obtain a body mass index, height and weight values should be entered for the same age
With this program, you can follow your child's growth, return to your account, and see your child's plan whenever you want, from the date of the baby's birth to the age of 19
You should be sure of your child's measurements accurately, and remember that inaccurate measurements may lead to a misinterpretation of your child's condition
Male charts are in blue and female charts are in pink
Your child's measurements will appear in small gray circles or blots and your child's growth chart will be a gray line
The child's measurements are normal if they are in the area around the green curve and always between the orange curves
And they are in increase if they are between the upper orange and red curves. and if this is the case , it is recommended to consult your pediatrician.
The child's measurements are abnormal if the child chart is going up and exceeds the upper red curve , Here you should consult your doctor...
The child's measurements are abnormal if the child chart is going down and is are between the lower orange and red curves, and here it is recommended to consult your pediatrician
The child's measurements are abnormal if the child chart is going down and exceeds the lower red curve to the bottom, and here you should consult your doctor
Remember that drawing a single blot or measurement on a child's growth chart is not enough to assess the child's condition and growth.
However, several measurements should be made
to chart the child to accurately assess the child's development
These charts are World Health Organization charts.
