ABSTRACT
The article discusses weight gain and loss among infants methods for weighing them. The standard growth charts don't make allowances for the weight loss that takes place in the first few days. The weight babies lose is largely from fluid, but some of it may be fat loss. It was found from a study that the smallest babies lost little or no weight while the heaviest babies lost the most. It was also found that the weighing charts in the United States as well as Great Britain give the impression that all children are below normal in the first fortnight of their birth.
