Growth in babies (age 0-1 year)

Overview

As a new parent, the amount of information out there about growth can feel overwhelming – all you want is for your baby to be happy and healthy. During these early stages of development, any issues with growth may not be showing themselves which is why it is vital to keep track of your baby’s growth, in order to identify early if there is a problem.

As a reference, from birth to 1 year, babies grow about 25 cm.
