Growth And Feeding

by megha (follow)
Eating (32)      Growth (1)     
There is a common idea that when it comes to babies, fatter is better. In fact, when food is in short supply, a fatter baby is more likely to survive. But in modern society, the problem is turned around: fat babies may grow up to be obese children and adults who are anything but healthy.

In my mind lots of questions arise. How do I know whether my baby has a healthy weight? Large or small, a child's weight is healthy if:-
1. Weight tends to stay at or near the same percentile, month after month.
2 . Weight is roughly proportional to her length.
