Nowadays, young parents have an idea of how to raise their children, and some may follow the growth line of their children and keep an eye on their children's growth. Some parents take a completely free-range approach to parenting and have no idea how to follow the child's growth spurt, and probably have never even heard of the child's growth spurt. In fact, understanding the child growth line is crucial to the normal development and growth of children.
What is the Child Growth Line
The Child Growth Line is a child growth chart published by the World Health Organization, which is drawn using the child's growth indicators as the main reference. It is actually a curve that is drawn through the child's height, weight and head circumference as the vertical axis and the child's age as the horizontal axis. Parents start plotting their children from birth, usually in one-week increments.
What is the purpose of understanding the child's growth span?
Some parents pay more attention to the child's growth line because sometimes when children go to the hospital, the doctor will ask about the child's height, weight, and other information, and when the child's height grew faster and weight increased faster, but many parents cannot answer the questions. If parents understand the growth line of their children early, understand the curve of the child's growth and development changes, then you can find out in time when the child grows faster, when it becomes slower or when there is no change, so you can pay attention to it early and take corresponding measures early.
Correctly mapping the child's growth line
Some parents are aware of the child's growth line, but they always intermittently plot it, and may forget about it when they are busy. To monitor the development of the child's body at all times, the child's growth curve should be drawn continuously so that the changes in the child's head circumference, height and weight can be seen on the curve. Normally, this curve should stretch upward with the child's growth time, if it is flat or stretches downward, there may be a problem.
It's not easy to raise a child nowadays, it's not okay to be born without starving or freezing. It is also necessary to pay attention to the growth and development of the child, and it is scientific to use the growth line of the child to record the growth of the child. Therefore, understanding the growth line of children is crucial to the normal development and growth of children.
