In 2000, the original National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) growth charts were replaced with growth charts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The revised CDC growth charts include eight charts each for boys and girls, such as charts that follow a child’s height, weight, head circumference, and body mass index at various ages. The CDC growth charts can be used continuously from ages 2-19. In contrast the WHO growth charts only provide information on children up to 5 years of age. For children 2-5 years, the methods used to create the CDC growth charts and the WHO growth charts are similar.

The WHO Growth Charts. Birth to 24 months: Boys Weight-for-length percentiles and Head. Pediatric growth charts have been used by pediatricians, nurses, and parents to track the growth of infants, children, and adolescents in the United States since 1977. CDC recommends that health care providers: Use the WHO growth standards to monitor growth for infants and children ages 0 to 2 years of age in the U.S.

These and all our growth charts are based on WHO Child Growth Standards, which describe the optimal growth for healthy, breastfed children. The growth of most children less than four years of age should be plotted on the more detailed UK-WHO 0-4 year growth charts. However, children who have been plotted on the NICM chart up to age two years.

The clinical charts have the grids scaled to metric units (kg, cm), with English units (lb, in) as the secondary scale. Clinical charts are available for boys and for girls.

The available clinical charts include the following: Infants, birth to 36 months: Length-for-age and Weight-for-age; Head circumference-for-age and Weight-for-length. IAP Boys BMI Chart 5-18-years. IAP Boys Height & Weight chart 5-18-years Girls.

Charts below are derived from the guidelines and growth charts provided by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) and they will focus on providing an average weight range as well as normal range of height and weight for kids in different age groups, both girls and boys. For example out of a sample of 100 children, a percentile value of 40 percent means your child weighs more than 40 children and weighs less than the other 60. A percentile of 50% represents the average or mean weight.

A value below 50 percent means a child weighs less than the average. A value greater than 50 percent means a child is above average.

  • Hi, I am not a doctor and I basically here because I am short stature 150cms and my son who is 12 years old is 141cms. I find many studies use charts and dismiss me and my son height at genetic. But I see a pattern where I grew tall only upto age 12 and I am the same height now and my son has also not gained height in the past year. Most aspects of this study assumes that the parents height was obtained with best of nutrition and no issues with thyroid or growth hormone deficiency. Surely that is wrong assumption. Why is that never considered by pediatricians?

  • Hi Medicosis, What does it mean when they say: The child height is at the 95th percentile and the child weight is at the 25th percentile? Can you make it easy to understand? Thank you

  • Excellent, simple, and to the point presentation for growth charts.
    Thank you very much for your time and effort to do this video.
    My regards from Saudi Arabia.
