My baby recently turned 1.2, so now I’m interested in the developmental norms of children from one to two years. In general, I am not very fixated on these indicators, I don’t make sure that the daughter of grams per gram matches the tabular data, but I think that any mother should know what numbers to orient her in order to take action promptly with serious deviations.
How to weigh a child at home?
I admit, I do not visit a pediatrician as often as many mothers with babies up to two years of age do. I do not see the need for us to appear in the clinic so often. Only there to collect an infection, and the new, to be honest, I have never heard much there. Therefore, I measure my treasure at home by myself. Improvised means.
For this, I use Tanita children’s scales, which I use from birth – 1 piece and my own daughter’s production – 1 piece))))
As far as my miracle recovered, I look in the morning, about once in two weeks. Why in the morning? – you ask. Yes, everything is simple, in fact. In the morning we do not have time to load our body with food, so the weight will be the most adequate.
Therefore, in the morning, about 15 minutes after waking up, I take off her diapers and soot on the scales. I write the results in a notebook. For clarity and comparison.
The weight rate in girls from a year to three years
Below, in the plate, I collected an approximate weight rate for children from 1 to 3 years. It is important, of course, to remember that all these figures are approximate.
Child’s age * Average weight in girls * Middleweight boys
1 year * 9.0-10.2 * 9.4-10.9
1 year and 3 months * 9.7-10.9 * 10.1-11.7
1 year and 6 months * 10.3-11.5 * 10.7-12.4
1 year and 9 months * 10.6-12.2 * 11.2-12.9
2 years * 11.3-12.8 * 11.7-13.5
2 years and 3 months * 11.7-13.3 * 12.2-14.1
2 years and 6 months * 12.3-13.9 * 12.6-14.6
2 years and 9 months * 12.7-14.5 * 13.1-15.2
3 years * 13.3-15.5 * 13.8-16.0
My daughter’s weight almost always entered these norms, occasionally there was a slight deviation from the extreme lower limit. Many people notice that she is small and thin, but I do not pay attention to it. She eats with us well, very cheerful, active, mobile. Is not it an indication that the child feels great!
6-7% of these figures are considered to be a normal deviation; you should not even pay special attention to such differences, I think. If the deviation of your child’s weight is above 12%, in any of the parties, then it is worth discussing it with an observer to avoid any problems with the health and development of the baby.
