What is the
ormal growth rate for babies?


The general guidelines that are usually given for growth are: • a baby loses 5-10% of birth weight in the first week and regains this by 2-3 weeks • birth weight is doubled by 4-6 months and tripled by 12 months • birth length increases 1.5 times in 12 months • birth head circumference increases by about 7.6 cm in 12 months. However, all babies grow differently and these are just general guidelines. If you are concerned about your baby’s growth, you can contact your medical adviser for a thorough assessment of your baby’s general health and wellbeing.
