Child growth standards

Weight velocity

The velocity standards for weight are presented as 1-month increments from birth to 12 months, and as 2- to 6-month increments from birth to 24 months. Weight increments by birth-weight category, particularly useful for lactation management purposes, are presented in 1-week and 2-week intervals from birth to 60 days.
