3 ways to measure growth
weight, height, Fronto-Occipital Circumference (FOC)
avg birth weight in Americans
Birth weight in Americans is ~3.5 kg. (~7.5 lbs.).
Plot weight on growth curves every visit.
A newborn may normally lose up to 10% of birth
weight in first week of life, but should regain birth
weight by the second week of life.
Doubles birth weight by ~4-6 months.
Triples birth weight by ~1 year.
Weight gain slows after 1 year.
Avg birth length
35 cm (14in)
Congenital Zika infections
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS)
2-3 standard deviations (SD) below the mean
Toxoplasmosis (Cat feces, Generalized calcifications)
Rubella (Congenital cataracts)
CMV (Periventricular calcifications)
Herpes, HIV, HSV
familial, hydrocephalus, neoplasm
Unusually rapid head enlargement (upwardly crossing percentiles)
large fontanelle, hoarse cry, bradycardia, constipation, jaundice
routinely recorded after 3 yrs of age
By age of visit: cross sectional
By domain: longitudinal
Denver Developmental Screening Test II: Most commonly used
Brazelton: Newborn behavior/neurologic function
Bayley: More extensive evaluation
