  • How are we supposed to know? Charts are different for diffrent areas of the country - even by counties, my doc's nurse told me. If you have a checkup coming up (and you should) you'll find otu then, or you can ask. If you just had an appointment, call and ask.

  • You can google the growth chart and that will help you.

  • In addition- size and growth are determined by 3 factors: weight, length and head circumference- you need to see progress in each of these values-
