 Best. Site. Ever.
I used this with Natalee and when I found it and logged in again, all Natalee's information was still there. You just enter their height/weight and it shows their chart with their percentiles. Keep track of their growth for 24 months!

Awesome. I haven't gone to it yet (I'm just readig this now) but can someone dumb down the whole percentile thing for me? I don't get what it means to be in the __th percentile. Jacob is in the less than third, and other than really little, I dot know what he numbers mean.

Ok so if a baby is in the 27th percentile theyare bigger than 27% of babies his age...my kiddos have always been high, but it doesnt really matter as long as your baby follows in his "arch" if he drops "archs" thats when there is concern. You'll see what i mean about archs at the site

Bethany, I registered on the site and its awesome. Yeah, Alex's arch is going up, up, up! The ped told me he's 75% percentile though, but the site is saying 88%. I wonder if it matters on the child's background...like for an asian baby. Hmmm.

Gotcha. Yea I went to the site, and for his 2 month weight it said 5th% but that is as low as it goes, so it might still be lower. Also he has been gaining weight a little better sincethen but it wont let me enter another weight til 3 mos, so we'll see what it says then

Yes checking the height/weight according to the percentile is the best way to know the exact height and weight of a child.
